We thought you might be encouraged by an email we received recently from an American University student with whom we worked a couple of years ago.
"This is Patrick Graham (you insisted on calling me
Patrick because St. Patrick was such an awesome dude). I don't know if
you remember me, but I was involved with the Gathering at AU. I have
since transferred to the Univ of Oklahoma and am in the beginning of my
second and final year here. But since I got here God has rocked my world
and really shown me what it means to be in love with Him. He is
constantly breaking out of the boxes I put Him in, and it's awesome to see
how powerful He is. But God just put unity in the body of Christ
randomly on my heart at 2am, and I thought of SOI 21. I just wanted to encourage you guys and say that God is so
proud of y'all for the good and faithful servants you are. He is going
to do even greater things than you can imagine because the work you guys
do is at the center of Jesus' heart. He does not want to come back to
marry a body that is divided into pieces, but wants to have a beautiful
and unified bride! I believe you guys understand that, and He will bless
your passion for Him and His purposes. Keep fighting the good fight
because our God is so worth it!"
Wow! How encouraging to hear from a student we worked with in the past who has even moved on to a different part of the country. It's always meaningful to see a seed God has sown in a someone's heart bring forth fruit. Praise the Lord!
Thank you for your prayers and support that make it possible for us to minister to students like Patrick!
If you haven't had a chance to do so, please visit SOI 21's new evangelistic website, www.thefatherwantsyou.com. We hope you'll enjoy it, and we encourage you to use it to share the Good News with family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers.
We do need your help as we still lack funding for these projects (Gospel banners, booklets, and website). We need to raise an additional $5,000 to cover our costs. If you feel led to contribute to this evangelistic undertaking, we would be incredibly grateful! Please visit www.thefatherwantsyou.com/give and select your preferred giving option.
We have really sensed the Father's anointing as we have worked on these projects. Please pray with us that He will use these resources to draw many lost sons and daughters home to His embrace!
