Pullman, Washington and neighboring Moscow, Idaho host two important universities in the inland Pacific Northwest. Washington State University and the University of Idaho draw tens of thousands of students and researchers to this somewhat remote area, surrounded with rolling wheat fields. Both schools have strong programs in the sciences, particularly related to agriculture. As a result, they draw international students and scholars in surprisingly large numbers.
But Pullman and Moscow are kind of out of the way. Therefore, we haven’t a big Christian event in many years. One long-time resident estimated that the last stadium-sized event was in 1978. That’s part of what makes Hopefest special.
Pastors and other ministry leaders, like myself, are joining together in prayer and hope that this Hopefest event will have a profound effect on our community. Will you join with us in prayer this month?
