Yesterday we spent the afternoon helping the freshmen move in to campus. The Lord surprised by assigning us to a hall where we met two freshmen who had requested info from the Navs this summer! That was encouraging to us. We made some other initial contacts as well. As a small ministry on campus, this really helps!
Today we had a "survey table" in the dining hall during the breakfast hour. Surveys are tools we use to make initial contact with students we might not normally run into. We offer a giveaway as incentive to fill out the survey. Here's the survey:
This survey gives us the opportunity to see what people are looking for and follow up with those who are interested.
Today we received 29 "A", 37 "B", and 48 "C" responses.
That's an encouraging start for us! We'll continue to seek out contacts in the coming days and begin following them up soon with a personal visit.
These are such crucial days for these freshmen! Please intercede for them, that they would connect with the Body of Christ here...and hopefully a lot of them with us!
