I cannot believe that we are already in November! Last month was the beginning of a new year for our University Students here in London. Many of them continuing on with their studies and many of them starting their first year in this big city! Jinlei is a first year student from China. I met her during her first days on campus and had the honour of sharing who Jesus is with her for the first time! She has since started coming to church and also to our Follow Course. Watch this space to celebrate her becoming a Christian in the coming weeks!
I love students, and even though they aren’t my main focus I can’t help but be involved and help out when I can. I joined them on one of their first dinners a few weeks ago. It was great seeing students from five Universities come together ready to start a year of going deeper in their relationship with God.
I have the privilege of walking with a lot of these young ladies as students and also when they graduate. Last year, I started mentoring Angelina in her final year. She was Hindu but
became a Christian shortly after we started meeting up! The Lord has really changed her inside and out and here she is sharing her testimony in church of how she realised the Hindu idols she was worshipping were not of God and how she threw them away and experienced such freedom as a result!
We have started a new season of the Follow Course this past month as well. Part one of the Follow Course talks about the Father heart of God and covers the story of the Prodigal Son. I was so excited to teach the first lesson this past week because we had a handful of people in the room, including Jinlei, who had never read or heard the story of the Prodigal Son and how much God loves them no matter who they are, what they have done or where
they have been. It was an emotional night!
Lastly, please continue to pray for Dolu. I am going to the hospital pretty much every day so I will update you on any changes.
Thank you for your love, prayers and support! They mean soooooo much!
