God is at work on Kansas-Nebraska campuses despite the coronavirus crisis. Jason Huebner, director of Christian Challenge at Emporia State University, Emporia, Kan., sent this encouraging report:
“A few weeks ago I had the privilege to baptize three of our student leaders. They each had been baptized as small children without any faith of their own. After talking about what God has done in bringing them to faith late in high school or early in college, they cornered me and exclaimed: ‘Jason, we need you to baptize us!’
“These three young people have been an incredible witness to their families who each attended church years ago but do not have any kind of living faith currently. Please be praying that the faithfulness of these college students will draw their parents close to Jesus as well.
“Our numbers on Thursday nights have continued to be great! I don’t remember a year when our largest groups were in the middle of the spring semester. These students are so hungry for connection and they are finding that at Challenge.
“We have more young women from ESU sororities attending Challenge than ever before. I know of three Greek houses represented at our meetings right now. It can be a hard thing to live out faith in this environment, but some of these ladies are awesome leaders in their sororities and vibrant disciples of Jesus. Please be praying for a few of these ladies who I know do not yet have a personal relationship with Jesus.
“This spring has been one of the most encouraging semesters that I remember in recent years! God is really doing something cool. Thank you for your prayers and encouragement.”
