Pittsburgh, PA—Gospel Trip, Update 6

February 5

In the morning the local saints and trainees met for coordination. During this time, we discussed new goals for the tabling at West Virginia University, where we ended up exceeding our goal of handing out Bibles. We noticed that there is more hunger here among the students compared to the campuses in Pittsburgh. Within 15 minutes after setting up the table, 36 Bibles had already been passed out to the students. The students are more responsive, open to receive the Lord, and willing to sign up for more information on the Bible study we’ll have tomorrow.

After the meeting to gather statistics and dinner, we attended the prayer meeting at a saint’s home, which is currently being remodeled to create more room for the saints to meet. We were able to blend and pray with more of the local saints during this time, even meeting the only student of the club. After prayers, some of the local saints shared their testimonies, which was watering and sweet.

Tuesday morning consisted of an early appointment, coordination, and traveling to campus for our final follow-up appointments with students from Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh. Trainees that did not have appointments attended the University of Pittsburgh lunch and Bible study. There, we read a chapter in the book of Hebrews with students and local saints. After appointments, we regrouped to pack up the vehicles to head to Morgantown, West Virginia. The sisters settled and rested at their hospitality and the brothers visited West Virginia University before dinner. There, we had a sweet time of introductions and blending with the families and local saints.
