The first night we got to hear about our students who or going overseas for the gospel. It was amazing to hear the paths it took for them to even come to Portland for this briefing. Thirty-two students and staff are going to four different countries, two of which are closed to the Gospel of Jesus.
- One student did not believe that God would raise up the $5,000.00 that she needed to be able to go to Moscow, Russia. Sure enough, she stood in the middle of the room declaring God’s faithfulness with financial support raising.
- Another student shared about the fact that he didn’t have other plans for the summer. So he figured he would apply to come on project and see what happened. And in no time at all he was accepted and encouraged to go. He had no idea that he would be called to go.
- Even one of our staff shared that she had dreamed that she would be in the country that she is leading a team. She shared how she knew that she was supposed to go, even though she didn’t want to go. Another awesome way that God is working.
- One last story, one of these summer missions projects is lead by students. And they are going into a closed country. Yes, they have staff that are going with them, but these students leaders will be guiding their teams direction spiritually, and in ministry.
Thirty-two men and women are taking the gospel to the nations. They are going to share Jesus with the multitudes around the world. They are sacrificing their summers… vacations… trips with families… jobs to support their educations… they are giving up six weeks for God’s Kingdom.
Please be praying for these students over the next six weeks.
Pray for their safety.
Pray for their travel.
Pray for their hearts and teams.
Pray for the people they will meet.
Pray for new brothers and sisters in Jesus.
