We had a bible study bonding night two Mondays ago. We got together at my house and made homemade pizza. For any of you who have seen our house- picture 10 lively girls in my kitchen and dining room and you will get a picture of the fun we had! We then painted our favorite bible verse on canvases and shared why we picked that verse. These girls are getting excited about the word of God!
Many of the girls attended our fall conference this past weekend and were impacted by the speaker, the workshops, and the time to get to know other women who are living for the Lord. Getting a chance to be away from the distractions of campus and out in nature is an amazing thing for busy college students. One of the girls in my study, Meghan had quite the weekend as she and I spent a majority of it in the ER. She was in excruciating pain all weekend and ended up getting her appendix removed on Saturday night. It was her first surgery, not only that but she was away from home and from family and in an unfamiliar place. It was definitely an exhausting and stressful weekend, but the Lord was so good!
To top it off last night at bible study we had a testimony night, where we all shared our testimonies and took time to pray for each other. I can't tell you how excited I am about the community that is forming in this group. These women are amazing people and are totally drawing near to God together! I would love to sit down in person with all of you and tell you the details of these girls lives! I could go on for hours about the exciting ways that God is working.
Unfortunately, we don't have that luxury. But I will tell you that almost all of the girls in my study were not walking with the Lord two years ago and they are now on a journey to know Christ and make Him known! Is this not the most exciting news? The gospel has come to these girls and has literally changed their lives. Two years ago they were stuck in patterns of drinking, apathy, depression, being charmed by the vain things of this world and now they are following Christ.
Praise the Lord! To Him be the Glory!!
Please enjoy a few pictures of all of the fun activities we have had over the past few weeks!
