In the midst of COVID-19, the spring semester for Emporia State Christian Challenge was actually the best spring semester I can remember in campus ministry!
In the fall two of our student leaders on the tennis team led one of their teammates to faith in Jesus! The last few months have been life changing for this new believer. As we met weekly during the spring semester, he shared his plan to share his new faith back home in Great Britain over the summer. Pray that his new faith grows and that his friends and family are receptive to the gospel.
Two awesome young women graduated in May and are coming on staff in the fall. Genevieve and Kelsey are dynamic leaders who are an answer to recent years of prayer. They will be raising financial support. If you’ve ever considered giving toward reaching the college campus, I would love to connect you with one of these ladies.
Numbers were up! Numbers don’t measure everything in ministry, but they are important. We had 50 students at our weekly meeting all spring without any drop off as finals pressed on student schedules. We also have over a dozen student leaders committed to serve in the fall.
So many small encouraging things have happened this year that I can’t fit them into this newsletter, but it has been one of the most encouraging years that I can remember. Thank you for your prayers and financial support!
