October 2013 Update
Marty & Brenda Dittmar (1975)
Brenda and I thank you all for your interest, prayers and support of the ministry to students and student athletes at Purdue. We continually pray that God will bless you all.
It's always a joy to hear from former athletes at key moments in their lives. Lance was a faithful FCA athlete at Purdue. While he trusted Christ before coming to Purdue, it was at Purdue FCA where his faith really took off. He was one of our leaders and a good testimony on the track team. He went on several mission trips and has returned to go on some as an alumni. Below is a huge event for him! He called me the day of his baptism to thank us for the mentoring in his life that brought him to this day of full surrender in obedience to follow Christ. Though Lance was thanking us, he was also thanking all of you who make this ministry possible! The ripples continue from the Word of God in people's lives that was taught while here.
We had the opportunity to be in a Missions Conference in Kokomo at Bible Baptist recently. While there, we were able to renew fellowship with 4 former Kossuth/Purdue college students. Brad & Deanna and Mike & Tina. Can't explain how awesome it is to see them again and to see that they walk with the Lord and are raising neat families and involved in the Lord's work in their churches and communities.
We praise the Lord for his working in many lives around Purdue athletics. Our weekly Huddle is going well. We had a special speaker and musical group in last week. The speaker spoke on Zacchaeus in Luke 19. It really touch many of our student athletes. Pray for God to continue to use His word to draw hearts and change lives. Here's a picture of a small part of the group that night taken by one of our students...
We appreciate you all! Keep praying that the Word will continue to go forth freely and unhindered. While we are able to share these things here, there are so many other things going on that we are not able to share openly. It's exciting everyday to see what God is doing!
