Hey Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I hope your day was blessed with all good things from the Lord. I had a good day on campus and Leslie prayed to receive Jesus as her savior. Another girl Emily was close, maybe, and was going to think about it. I think she was used to thinking her own way about God and the Bible re-tracked her a bit. Please pray for these girls if you have a moment. Leslie’s story is below if you want to spend the time.
Leslie was sitting in a row of chairs at the first door East of the SSC lounge. She had long wavy brown hair framing her, a cute round face, she had full features and looked like a Latina. She was the flip side of petite but not fat. She wore a black sweater and leggings and seemed reserved. It turned out she went to a Catholic Church. I asked her if she wanted to do a student survey and she was hemming an hawing, not sure she wanted to say yes or no. So I said the main question is, “Say you are walking down the road and you get hit by a bus. So you’re dead. And you stand before God and He says, ‘Why should I let you into Heaven?’ what would you say?” “Well, He’d want you to tell the truth,” she replied. “Would you like to hear the Bible verses that explain how you get to Heaven?” I asked. She said she would so I told her my name again and showed her my email on the back and began to go through some Bible verses and explain the Gospel. I asked her if she knew what Jesus had done to take away the sins of the world, saying God had to take away her sins so she would be purified and He could live inside her. “He died,” she replied. I explained to her that that was how she was purified and how God got paid [1john 1:7]. I said Jesus earned the righteousness of God and could give it to us to our credit. I said she needed to receive Him by faith believing Jesus was God had died for her sins and rose from the dead. Her good stuff would not fix her bad stuff but God would work all things into Good for them that loved him. I asked if she would want to be forgiven for her sins or thought something else showing her the circle with God inside her. She nodded saying, “Be forgiven.” So I said if she wanted to be forgiven there was a prayer she could pray. “Ok,” she said. I talked her through it and asked if she wanted she could pray it right now and I wouldn’t hear but God would and she’d know she was forgiven. “Wanna do that?” “Yeah,” she said. I handed her the booklet and she said, “Oh ok,” and she prayed to receive Jesus. I explained living by the Spirit’s power and the symbolism behind the mass. I gave her a copy of Bible Promises for You and wrote her name and the date and “forgiven!” in the front. “Thank you,” she said taking the book. I gave her The Case for Christ Answer Booklet and a bible study. I told her I would pray for her for the next year a Bible verse each day. She thanked me again. “I’ll see you in Heaven,” I said getting up to go. “OK. Thank you,” she said again and I headed out.
Thanks for your prayers for the Ministry and for evangelism if you had a chance today God truly blessed.
