We asked you to be praying for our “Thirsty” Proxe station, and your prayers were DEFINITELY felt!
On November 3rd about 12 InterVarsity students planted themselves outside of the David Student Union for about 5 hours to engage CNU students with the question “What are you thirsty for?”
They were given a ‘top 4’ list to choose from (Success, Fun, Purpose, Love), and from their answer, our students were able to ask them whether or not they really thought these could really satisfy them, and share with them the grace-filled and yet challenging message of Jesus: that none of these things can satisfy us, but Jesus is willing and able to do just that.
At the end of the conversation, no matter how it went, the students were invited to our Large Group meeting that was happening that night where Beth would be speaking about how she found out from Scripture and from experience that the things of this world-for her, success-would never satisfy us.
By my estimation we had between 10 and 15 more people at Large Group that week than usual! Praise God that many heard the gospel message that day (maybe for the first time-more students than you would think have no idea what the basic Christian message is!), and for the faith and strength He gave to myself and the 12 students that day.
Please continue to pray that God would water and grow the seeds that were planted on November 3rd in the hearts and minds of CNU students (and professors and faculty that we spoke with), that they might know the God who satisfies every good longing, even unto eternal life.
