Today was one of those "God days" that just fill you up and make you want to jump for joy! I've been struggling for a few weeks with spiritual attacks and discouragement. It's difficult to desire to be ministering on campus with students, yet my main work at this time is raising the financial support and partnerships from friends and churches. It's tough work and I was beginning to get a bit weary. But today, I planned on meeting with Jon who is an instructor at Washtenaw Community College (where I will be starting the campus ministry). Jon is a former WMU grad and InterVarsity participant and leader. I met with Jon at 11:30am today and also planned on meeting Rob a student at WCC. Rob showed up just before noon and both of these guys are just awesome servants of God. We talked about campus ministry and each of our own spiritual journeys. While we were talking Rob's friend Mitch showed up. He is another passionate servant of Jesus! Then I also met another friend of Mitch's, Lindsay and we talked and prayed with her. Also TD showed up and joined in our conversation.
I won't go into all of the detail, but God is working on this campus. Keep praying friends that God will move this group of students to reach their peers with the gospel. Today was such an encouraging day. I know it is true that if we persevere, we will reap a harvest.
Praise be to God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit who moves and counsels us daily!
