Last week at Cru, the Traveling Team came and visited, and showed us in the Bible how God is all about missions. We learned about how all the different languages started (“Greek, French, Italian, Thousand Island…”) and read where the prophets spoke about God wanting believers to share the gospel with others (including “the Italian prophet Malachi…”). As you can tell, they had a little sense of humor too.
They also explained how we, as college students, can be a part of missions.
GO – There’s always the option you’ve heard of: you can go overseas for a summer, for a week, for a year, with Cru or other missions organizations. But, have you ever thought about “going” across campus? There are hundreds of international students RIGHT HERE at Winona State that come from all over the world. What if you befriended one student? What if you got to share the gospel with them, and they decided they wanted to have a relationship with Jesus? What kind of impact could they have on others when they go back home?
SEND – YOU can be a part of sending other missionaries who are already going, and help them get there! There are two critical ways they need your help: financially and prayerfully. You may think as a college student that you could never help financially support someone to go overseas. But think of this: what if you could scrounge up even $20 for a missionary who’s going? What if 5 college students could each get together $20? That’s already $100 more than that missionary had before! A little can go a long way.
And, we’re calling YOU out to be a prayer WARRIOR for those going. Prayers are powerful, and our most powerful weapon against the Devil stopping missionaries. Your prayers can take down armies, cut through government red tape, and soften even the hardest heart. When we pray, God moves!
