    Chris, Dom, Terri & [nlcf] staff,
    ~Thank you for everything you are doing to care for the VT students, staff and community. As a cousin of a current Tech student, I am especially grateful! I am praying for your ongoing ministry and so thankful that God has placed you @ VT for such a time as this~ Becky

  2. Grace Community Church in Noblesville, IN was read this letter today. We prayed for all the familes touched by this action.

  3. Please know that brothers and sisters in Christ from PVBC are praying for NLCF and VT. Many have called to express their concern for the struggles you face and the burdens you bear at this crucial time. We know that our Lord is powerful and will bring good out of this tragedy. May He hold you close in His loving arms at this time and fill you with wisdom and power as you minister in His name.

  4. I am a former Blacksburg resident and BHS graduate; my parents still live there.I’ve lived in France for 22 years and it is incredible to hear Va Tech make the headlines here, unfortunately because of tragedy. My prayer is that there will be revival on that campus, and that your light would shine to all those who are questioning and suffering. May God give you much wisdom and sensitivity.

  5. To all the [nlcf] staff,

    It breaks my heart that such a tragedy has occurred, but if it had to, I’m glad that it happened where there is such a strong body of believers being led by amazing men and women of faith. You all guided me through so many troubled times in college, and I am confident you will do the same, and even more so now. My prayers are with you, that God will continue to speak his Word through you to the community of Va Tech, and that many will come to know Christ in this time of healing.

  6. Hi Chris and the rest of nlcf,

    We here at Texas A&M want to let you know that we are praying for you. Words can seem so unsufficient in these times and you are right…they really can’t comfort in the way you all really need it. So we do pray that you all as well as the students’ families will experience the God of all comfort in a very real and tangible way.

    I am so encouraged by the love and faith being displyed through all of you!

    We love you guys,

    Sarah and the Texas A&M Staff
