St. Louis—Gospel Trip, Update 6

January 29

Some of us went to a community meeting where we went over The Normal Christian Life, while the majority of the team went to the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) campus. On campus we reviewed the list of students we have contacted over the past week to invite them to the Bible study on Thursday night.

January 30

In our morning coordination we received fellowship from visiting saints, encouraging us to join the Lord in the two main things He is doing in His heavenly ministry: praying and ministering God into man. “But we will continue steadfastly in prayer and in the ministry of the Word.” (Acts 6:4)

We traveled to UMSL for tabling and multiple follow-up appointments. One very positive student even joined us tabling and boldly handed out flyers to her fellow students.

In the evening, we met in a home near the campus for dinner and a Bible study. Our feeling was that the Lord blessed this time above all that we could ask or think. Seven new ones joined us, many of whom were local Missourians. The atmosphere was full of the fragrance of Christ and mutual care for one another. One even shared that this was the best Bible study he has ever been to and that meeting us was the answer to his prayers. Some of these new ones will even join us for the home meeting tonight (Friday 1/31).

Prayer Burdens:

  • The proper transitioning of care to the local saints.
  • For the positive ones to establish strong connections with the local saints
  • At least 10 remaining fruit (particularly burdened for local Missourians)
