I would like to share with you about James, a student who’s been attending our Cambridge Campus Life for the last 2 years. James’ father, Matt, has been fighting a disease called Scleroderma and was in and out of the hospital on a regular basis. This past December Matt passed away.
Only a few weeks prior to Matt passing away, James’ grandfather passed away. These last couple of months have been extremely hard on James. He is incredibly grief stricken and feels that he has been dealt more then he can handle. I did not have much of an opportunity to get to know Matt well, but from what I’ve heard, he was described as “A great man, a deacon in his church, always had a smile on his face, and put others first.” These traits are ones that I can see in James as well; Matt did a wonderful job in raising him.
James more than ever needs to experience the love and hope of Jesus. We at Campus Life are trying to show him that, but I also want to ask you all reading this to pray for James. Please pray that the community of Cambridge would come around him and his family over the coming months and that the love of Christ would surround him and his family.
