Dear Travel Partner, 

Thank you for your willingness to trek along with us in thought, prayer, and devotion this Lenten season. It is the hope of our community and those who spent time creating these devotions that our writings will add to your experience of Lent. It is also our hope that, as you travel with us along this path, a feeling of partnership in ministry is created and deepened. In fact, we have a request for you: each week in Lent would you please lift up a prayer for our students and ministry involved in Lutheran Campus Ministry? We would greatly appreciate such support. 

As you may notice, at the bottom of each devotion we have included a hunger fact and/or activity. Lent seems like such an appropriate time to strengthen our commitment to fighting hunger in our community and in our world. This year’s hunger facts relate to local hunger issues.*  Perhaps an additional meal-time prayer for the hungry would add to our Lenten pilgrimage. 

Thank you for traveling with us this Lent. We look forward to seeing you in Jerusalem! 

Gratefully in Christ,  
Gary N. McCluskey - Campus Pastor, Arizona State University 

Amy Gauthier - Campus Ministry Associate, Arizona State University 

*Thank you to Barb Harris for providing us with these local hunger facts.

What is your favorite part of LCM? 
My favorite part of LCM is the people. Everyone has always been incredibly friendly and welcoming, and it's easy to feel the community that surrounds you. 

Why would you encourage others to check out LCM?
I would encourage others to check out LCM to be a part of this community that cares about you. I would encourage others to come if they were looking to experience God in a way not filled with judgment and anger, but of love. 

What is one thing you are looking forward to this year?
I am looking forward to the next Mexico Mission Trip. I did it once before in high school, and it was a pretty great experience. Also, I am looking forward to the next San Diego Trip because unfortunately I missed the last one.

For those who wish to have offerings transferred electronically to their church's account.
