May 2018

Dear Concordia Alumna/us,
It always amazes me how quickly the year goes by. Students are itching to get out of the classroom; the nice weather we're finally experiencing makes it easy to go out and play. As someone who has been through this four-year process, would you keep these students in prayer? I know there were parents, other family members, pastors, and congregations lifting each of you up as you were being shaped by your Concordia experience. We are encouraged in the Bible to build one another up. Thank you for supporting the ongoing work of your alma mater in all the ways that you do. I hope we get a chance to visit soon. I'm on campus throughout the summer, so please stop by!
In His Service,
Laura Thomas
