St. Louis—Gospel Trip, Update 4

January 23

This was our last day of the week laboring at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. The trainees were again going out in twos and threes with much prayer. Our aim was to welcome more than 20 students to come to the campus meeting. There were many positive responses with students passing by the Bibles for America table, and many conversations and appointments were released.

Through cooperating with Him, through faith, and the saints’ desperate prayer, three students joined the campus meeting. Although it was fewer than expected, the atmosphere of the campus meeting was cheerful.

January 24

Today, we went to the University of Washington in St. Louis (WashU) to preach the gospel. Our burden was also to cherish the students who regularly attend church meetings by spending time with them. During the campus time, some of us had appointments with our students or contacts, while others were going out to preach the gospel.

In the evening we had a small group meeting at a local couple’s house. Three of our new contacts from UMSL came, one of whom was also present at the campus meeting, and they enjoyed the meeting very much. We had dinner together and sang some hymns. We praise the Lord for such a sweet conclusion of this week’s labor.


  • Tracts distributed: 133
  • Appointments: 5

Prayer Burdens:

  • That the Lord will open up WashU more for the gospel.
  • For our students in WashU to be preserved on campus and perfected in the church life, and that many of them would go to FTTA.
  • That the Lord will keep the contacts coming back, and that they would become remaining fruit for the church in St. Louis.
