Hi Sean, We had such an amazing week last week with the Christian Union, meeting loads of new Christian students and also having various non-christians come along to evangelistic events.
Some of the highlights for me were:
- Really encouraging numbers of students engaging with the events, more than I had hoped for.
- Great prayer meetings every morning, sharing blessings from the day before and praying for the day ahead.
- Great team work within the CU with lots of the older students really getting involved and working very hard all week without complaining A couple of non-christians who are interested in finding out more (we are having an Alpha Launch tonight so hopefully they will come to that)
- Large numbers of international students at our international welcome meal (80) and at the first 'Small World Cafe' which runs weekly (60)
- Really exciting first main meeting, room was packed out with about 120 students of which more than half were new.
- Great gospel message by Dan Dwelly and lots of new friendships forming.
- 150 new students signing up who want to join CU or find out more about Christianity
- Some of the first years already getting involved giving out flyers or helping at events.
Would I be able to give some sort of short testimony about some of the points above so that the church can hear a bit of how God is working on campus? Thanks, Lydia
