Columbia, SC—Gospel Trip, Update 1

The gospel trip team arrived Saturday afternoon for lunch and a walk at Conagree National Park with some local saints. We concluded our first day with a bbq dinner at the home of one of the local families, followed by singing and enjoying the Lord. On Lord’s Day, we broke bread with the church in Columbia. In addition, there were some saints blending from Augusta, GA. Our prophesying meeting was abundantly rich with members from many places sharing their portions. We enjoyed the love feast after the meeting. We were able to blend and get to know not just the saints from Columbia, but those from Augusta as well.

In the afternoon our team toured the University of South Carolina (USC). We scoped out the campus for our Bible distribution that starts today. For dinner, we ate in the home of another local family, and we ended the evening with some singing and prayer. Prior to our Bible distribution at USC, the team met together to enjoy the Lord and coordinate with some singing, prayer, and truth pursuit; we, along with the local saints, started reading The Age of the One New Man.

Some of us had a meal at Waffle House earlier in the day. One of the brothers decided we should come back and give them the real waffles, the wonderful Word of God!

On the USC campus, we spent three hours tabling outside the student union (the Russell House) and walking around in pairs to pass out Bibles and to meet students. We were able to distribute many bibles and even arranged some second appointments with students.
