Salvo Students

a Biblical thought...
We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully. (Romans 12:6-8)

a Book thought...
Our tracking studies show that over the last decade children's TV time has decreased, but total 'screen' time (which includes all the electronic screens in their life) has increased. (p88)
a Dave thought... by Matt White - Mission Partner for ALOVE UK

If you are a young person connected to or part of The Salvation Army and you're starting university or even already part way through I would encourage you to read this guide. Ben Parker has written from both his own experiences and those of others he's met to give him a glimpse of what can be expected at university. He also asks questions that we hope both challenge and encourage you in your uni life.

Enjoy the read, I said that part of me felt jealous and that's true. Most of me, however, felt incredibly excited. Excited for a whole bunch of Salvo Students and the impact their lives could have on a whole bunch of universities all over the country.

To receive a copy of Salvo Students email alove@salvationarmy.org.uk with your name and address.

Just a thought.

How much is the book Dave?

We send them out for free as they are more of an extended booklet than a book. If you could let me know your address I will put one in the post for you.
