Results of the Work – 12/8/21

Hey Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I hope you had a blessed day walking with Jesus in the light of His word. I had a good day on campus and Nya prayed with me to receive Jesus. Please pray she is blessed and comes to Bible Study on Thursday. Thanks for your prayers, the details are below if you have time.

I got to school later than I wanted to and dawdled around; having walked to the door without my mask I had to double back to the truck. I walked in and my sciatic nerve started killing after not walking far from the locker I used. So I stopped and took some aspirin. I went on and got just inside the cafeteria and had this sense I was supposed to go over to the science building, which feels like it’s on the other side of campus. That’s if you take the hallways and don’t cut through the outside. So I spun around and started walking. I thought possibly someone on the way would be interested and no one was. I was starting to tell myself that there was no one in the science buildings. They are empty as almost every class is remote it seems. But one student has prayed to receive Jesus in there this semester and one in the lounge. I stuck with the sense I had had, which had come and gone in a second. I got to the first building and the halls were empty as expected. I went to ground floor empty all the way to the lounge and there was Nya, an African American girl sitting on one of the cushioned seats at the window. It turned out she had a round face and class full features, a kind smile as I saw her face as I got up to go. She had camouflage print leggings on and a black parka. She had long braided extensions and a hair band just above her forehead. She said she’d do a survey. It turned out she had come an hour early for her class and was just sitting around. I asked her what she would say to God if he asked ‘Why should I let you into Heaven and she said, “Hmm, that’s a good question.” Then thinking a bit she said, “Because I’ve done my best to live by Him and follow His rules.” She said she went to church and she thought she had an 80% chance of going to Heaven. She listened to the Gospel and she knew Jesus had died but she had not placed her trust in His work on the cross to be forgiven. So I asked her if she would want to be forgiven for her sins trusting in what Jesus had done for her or thought something else. “No I’d want to be forgiven.” she said. So I said there was a prayer she could pray to be forgiven and walked her through it and said, “It says here: ‘Is this prayer the desire of your heart?’ would you say that it is?” She looked me right in the eyes then and nodded. So I said she could pray it silently right now, “I wouldn’t hear you but God would hear and then you’d know you are forgiven. Wanna do it?” “Yeah,” she replied and she took the booklet and prayed to receive Jesus. I explained the Christian life walking by the Spirit’s power “Inside Out” and said that her 80% estimate was 100%—if she was trusting in the righteousness of Jesus to be her righteousness. I gave her a copy of Bible Promises for You and wrote her name and the date and “forgiven” in the front. I also gave her The Case for Christianity Answer Booklet. I gave her a Bible study and explained a bit. She asked about the bible Study and said she’d like to come so we’ll see if she pops in tomorrow. She thanked be twice and I said I would be keeping her in my prayers and I headed off. I looped through the empty halls and went up to the 2nd floor and by the time I reached the bridge to cross over to the east-most empty building a couple kids had entered the lounge but she had gone to class.

So thanks for your prayers for the ministry and for evangelism today if you had a chance, God truly blessed and guided me and I got a seed planted with another student Adiel.

In Him,
