Friends of 1010: November Update

Dear 1010 Friends & Family –

As many of you know, last month Caleb McCorkle hosted a special reunion for our 1010 students while he was home on fall break from Clear Creek Bible College. It was something he had been planning for weeks and the result was a fun-filled evening of games, smores, and laughter for students and leaders alike!

Caleb introduced students to a new game (who says 60 degrees is too cold for water balloons?) and reintroduced a beloved classic (we discovered Colleen and Ryan make a frighteningly good mafia team). However, the highlight of the evening was definitely “devo” time.

Using tips he learned from his own small group in Kentucky, Caleb encouraged everyone to go around the room and share one thing that gets in the way of them spending time with Jesus (the #1 thing for both students and leaders? YouTube!) He then led students in a discussion on John 2:13-22 where Jesus “cleansed” the temple (shout-out to Brendan and Madison for acting out the Scripture for us). For most students in attendance, this was their first time hearing the story and they left with a better understand of who Jesus was and what he came here to do.

Since then, we have been blessed to see the Lord’s continued work in students’ lives! Earlier this week, a student reached out to us to share Scripture and how the Bible app is helping them have a better attitude at home and school. Praise God!

Please continue to pray for our 1010 students and leaders. Many of our students have experienced, or are currently experiencing, difficult physical trials (ranging from appendicitis and hernias, to waiting for test results and upcoming knee surgery).

You can also pray for our leaders, too, as they strive to trust God in the season of life He currently has them in – from being a freshman in college to a senior getting ready to graduate, from working multiple jobs to waiting to see what’s next to being self-employed.

Students, keep being “BYOY”!


Your 1010 Leadership Team
