During this past semester The Lord was more faithful than I honestly thought He would be. I think with this being my first full semester on campus I thought it would be mostly building relationships and making connections that would in the future lead to me seeing future fruit. Thankfully I was so wrong!
Mallory and Blaire (friends of mine) have been such a joy to disciple. It has been amazing to see them learn and be excited about studying scripture and praying more intimately. They have also been working on articulating their testimonies. Both of them will be attending Summer Beach Project this summer and are so excited! I would love for you to join me in praying for them while they are there. The two things I’m praying for both of them are that they would each connect with The Lord on a deeper level than they think is possible and to be committed and excited to share their faith with their peers.
I’ve also had the chance to invest pretty heavily in three other girls this semester. One of the girls is a freshman named Allison. I’ve been so thankful for her because even though she is young she has been walking with the Lord for several years and really has a heart for the lost. I’ve been able to coach her through leading a bible study on a freshman hall. It’s been faith building for me to see her become excited about sharing her faith with others. The other two girls, Jenna and Chelsea, are both girls that have been semi-involved in the ministry for over a year. Through several long and hard conversations both girls realized they knew a lot about God but didn’t actually have a relationship with him. The Lord has used difficult situations in both of their lives to break them so they could let go of the things keeping them from Himself. I’m excited to see what God has in store for them this summer and next semester.
Overall, this semester has truly been a gift from the Lord. I’ve seen four girls come to love The Lord and seven girls I’ve invested in are on our Summer Leadership Project. I’m praying that all the students from KSU will come back to campus in the fall ready to glorify God at Kennesaw. I just want to say that all of this is possible because of your prayers and support so thank you for your faithfulness to furthering God’s kingdom.
I have had the privilege of being the women’s coordinator for our cross cultural project this summer in South Africa. I was a part of this trip two summers ago as a student (which had a lot to do with me deciding to work for Campus Outreach) and have loved being back. For all our supporters we have made a blog that tells about our cultural and ministry experiences. Please take a look and be praying for us as we are already half way through our trip. http://bakhonze.blogspot.com/
