Pray that our Bible studies would be fruitful, and that the Lord would fill us with a desire to serve Him first in all things, and not to neglect meeting together or putting aside the Word by which we are to live daily.

Pray that He would fill us with His Spirit to be bold in proclaiming the gospel to our faculty, and friends, despite their despising us for it.

In June of each year, we hold a 3-day CMDFA morning prayer conference with speakers and student-led prayer sessions at the Melbourne Convention Centre prior to the start of each conference day at the MD Student Conference. Throughout the year there is an effort to bring different year groups together for prayer, fellowship and thanksgiving events.

Since joining, she has seen God's work through the various ministries of CMDFA and desires for all students to be involved in this network so they can grow together and support each other in the sometimes challenging walk through medical school.

Western Australia

(UWA and UND)

SMA was started in 1992 by a group of Christian medical students from UWA. It has now grown to include medical students from UND (WA) as well as students from different health-related courses. SMA stands for Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who were three faithful men from the biblical book of Daniel. They were thrown into a fiery furnace for defying the authority of their time by refusing to bow down and worship an idol of gold. But God was with them and protected them from the heat of the furnace, saving them from death. In our studies, we are faced with the temptation to surrender to all sorts of things that would draw us away from God. This year, SMA’s vision is to be a family of healthcare students who are committed to following Christ above all else by serving others and making him known. To this end, SMA students meet regularly to study God’s word, pray for one another, and encourage one another to press on, through bible study and various events, both large and intimate.
