The biggest challenge we face is engaging believing students. Many are the first generation of children from believing families; their parents came to faith in the 90s after communism. These students tend to be apathetic towards faith, but consider themselves Christians. Our longing is that their hearts would be set on fire to want to know Christ and share him on their campuses. They know they “should” – but before they learn how to, they have to want to. Our student conference later this month will focus on three topics: “I don’t want to …… pray, read my Bible, share the gospel”, and we’ll spend time looking at what the Bible has to say about these feelings.
We hope to have between 10 and 20 young people, mostly students and senior high-schoolers, but this depends on whether their pastors allow them to attend.
Please pray that:
- students are able to come.
- The Holy Spirit challenges them to want to know Christ, to read his word, to pray and to preach him to their friends.
- As a result, we see a movement of students transformed by the gospel, eager to live lives that glorify Christ.
- We meet a few male students keen to meet up for 1-to-1 discipleship.
Thanks for praying with us!
