Our team spent time at the University of South Florida with the purpose of engaging students with the Gospel. At times, the Gospel was shared in “open air” using sketch board
evangelism by Eric, Richard, and Andrew. Throughout, tracts and DVDs of the life of Jesus were handed out by the rest of the team. At first, the thought of approaching students on the campus and engaging them in Gospel conversation was daunting, but by the grace of God our team was blessed with many opportunities to do so! Some of the university students were very open to hearing the Gospel and some were even open to being prayed for! Please pray for these students.
We had a wonderful afternoon at Kids’ Camp during which the message of God’s judgement and mercy towards the sin of Adam and Eve was shared. We have been so encouraged throughout the week by the faithfulness of many of the children in attending each Kids’ Club each day, bringing their homework, and even memorizing the Bible verses. Tomorrow will be our final day with these children whom we have come to love dearly. We pray that tomorrow, all the children will come so they can hear the message of how Jesus died for our sins through the story of Cain and Abel.
In the evening, our team had the privilege of joining in a potluck dinner and Wednesday Night Worship of Calvary Church, the church we have been staying at. It was truly a time of refreshing to be able to sing praises to God and pray with the church. Our team was so blessed to also be included in being prayed for by the church.
As we head into our final days of ministry here in Tampa, please pray for us. May God give ears to hear and eyes to see to the people whom we will encounter.
