I met Ashley last spring on campus, although she only sporadically attended Free Lunch. Fast forward to this fall. She has literally attended every BSM event since our Kickoff event: leaders meetings, lunches, & Meeting God in Scripture.
Tuesday after Free Lunch she told me that she'd never read the Bible but would like to do so someday. Turns out that I had a spare Bible to give her! ; ) & now we're reading the Book of John together.
It's my tradition to take a selfie with everyone I get to give a Bible to. She loved that idea!
Please PRAY that as we read the Book of John together Yahweh would reveal himself to Ashley in a very real & unmistakable way.
BSM just finished the 3rd FREE LUNCH of Fall '19. We've served 53-55 students weekly.
August 27th was BSM KICKOFF & loads of fun!
Sept. 3rd was our first official lunch & was a BSM info-based lunch.
Sept 10th we discussed our first question of the day, "Is the Bible accurate & relevant to my daily life? If so, how?" Which led right into our first Meeting God in Scripture on Thursday, Sept. 12th.
Sept 17th our BSM student president, Rebecca led us in worship.
TODAY after Free Lunch a student approached Rebecca and said that she felt that God was speaking to her through the time of worship. She shared that she has been struggling with her sexual identity for some time and heard God tell her that he loved her and would be with her no matter how confusing life gets. Rebecca asked if she would pray with her and then said, "I've had several friends struggle with sexual identity and they ended up finding their true identity in Jesus. That is my hope for you too."
PRAY that "Kelly" (& others) would find her identity in Jesus this year.
