Lunch with students who are Bears fans in one of the dorm cafeterias! :)
(For those of you who don't know --it was Packers vs. Bears on Sunday :)
I can't tell you how fun it was to walk from church to the dorm with this group of students who call themselves Navigators. More importantly than that they call each other friends and they call Jesus Christ Lord and Savior!
It was simply amazing to look around the lunch table and see 17 people! When we moved here in April this was the number of people we averaged at our weekly large group meetings! Not only that but there were 8 freshmen. This is 8 times more than we had 8 months ago.
This is a small illustration of the great work that God is doing at the U of I. Thank you for your faithful prayers and support on our behalf.
Please pray for these students (and many more) who are taking finals this week and headed home this weekend! May God continue this great work He has been doing in the hearts of students on campus as they head home for break!
