We Need Vitamins!
The Honduras immersion team needs your help for our upcoming medical mission trip in May.
We need vitamins!


A huge problem in developing countries is malnourishment, especially in children. Last year, we gave out thousands of vitamins to Honduran children and adults. The Honduras immersion team is asking the JCU community for vitamin donations of any size, and any type (children's, pre-natal, infant, etc.). Every donation helps, no matter the amount.


It's as simple as picking up a bottle of vitamins on your next shopping trip, and dropping your donation off with the Biology Department Secretary or the Center for Service and Social Action (AD 32).  The collection will continue throughout the Spring semester.  Thank you!

"Prayer Angels"

Prayer Angels is a new student-initiated prayer group on campus that has two goals: 1) to spread the awareness and power of prayer, 2) to break down religious divides. Anonymous prayer requests can be submitted, using this Wufoo form,  and each request will be distributed to the "prayer angels," who will personally pray for each intention. Anyone can submit a prayer request. Contact Ashley for more information.
