What a life-altering month it has been.
About two weeks ago my teammates and I were heading home after a long day on campus meeting students and were casually riding our bikes back to our apartment talking about all the new people we had met.
I noticed a guy riding his bike in front of me, swerving back and forth, smiling to himself and singing; looked like a fun guy! I kept feeling the Holy Spirit push me to catch up to him and meet him but I stayed back with my friends and continued our conversations.
As we continued our short journey back home (which is a lot of twists and turns) I noticed that this guy was taking the same route as us; I kept thinking how I should catch up to him and realized the Holy Spirit was prodding me; so I sped up on my new bike and caught up to him. I met Vic and asked if he wanted to exchange WeChat information to be friends. He told me it would be his absolute honor to meet a foreign student!
Over the next two weeks we met and hung out and finally after much spiritual conversation I was able to share the Gospel with him. He soaked in every word and at the end of our lunch accepted Jesus Christ into his heart and shook with absolute excitement.
When leaving lunch, we were both overcome with joy from the Spirit in this new relationship and I was so ecstatic to have such a wonderful new brother in Christ. As I got on my bike to leave I yelled back, “Vic, I hope you have an amazing rest of your day!” He turned back to me smiling and yelled back, “I think today will be most amazing day of my life!”
God is working here. He always has been and will never give up on this amazing country of people. His Holy Spirit is establishing beautiful relationships and friendships which are eternal! What an honor it is to serve and glorify our amazing God!

"We’ve been praying that God would direct us to students who are ready to receive his gospel or who have already trusted in Jesus and are ready to share the gospel themselves. We knew these people existed on our campus; but, after years of reaching out, meeting such students seemed impossible."
As much as we would like to believe that there is one good strategy to bring Christ’s good news to the ends of the Earth, there isn’t. One technique may work perfectly in one conversation only to fail over and over again when we apply that same technique to other situations. Every heart is different, and the map to pierce each heart with the gospel is different.
We’re not always guaranteed that we will see our dream of students taking steps of faith come to fruition. So when we do see this dream become reality, we should see it for what it is, as a mighty miracle from God. And, to our continual amazement and praise, it seems like this miracle is occurring almost daily on our college campuses here.
