January 25th

We arrived in Minneapolis, MN! It’s snowy but the temperatures are not too cold this week. We met the saints we are staying with and had a sweet time of blending with them in the evening. Around 6 pm, the 10 of us with about 20 saints from Brooklyn Park, Minneapolis and a few from Madison, WI gathered together for a love feast and a time of singing, pray-reading, and introductions. We prayed for the Lord to send us to many in Minneapolis for their eyes to be opened and for them to receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those (Acts 26:17-18). It was encouraging to hear one another’s recent experiences and enjoyments of the Lord. We are excited to be laboring together as one heavenly team.

On Lord’s day, four of us joined the table meeting in Brooklyn Park and six were in Minneapolis. The saints prophesied about the will of God concerning the all-inclusive, extensive Christ from the previous Thanksgiving conference. Afterward, we went sight-seeing with some saints at Ice Castles, saw snow sculptures, ate some donuts, ate dinner, and then saw ice sculptures. It was very cherishing to spend time with the saints and explore the wonderful city that will be our home for the next two weeks.

First day on the campus! We gathered together at the campus house at 8:30 am for a time of prayer and coordination. Then we headed to campus for tabling and going out two by two to preach the gospel and pass out flyers for upcoming campus events. Several community saints also joined us for the sowing time on campus. The main objectives were to pass out as many flyers as possible and establish meaningful contacts with the students.

Statistics:

Flyers: ~600 Tracts: 100
Contacts: 21
