"CICCU Events week, called ‘Tomorrow – Life in Longing’, revolved around the concerns we all have for the future, the desire to be better, to have security, to know – and the hope we have as Christians for the future. Praise the Lord for a good week of talks during lunch time and in the evening, as well as three international dinners on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
We had about 40 students at our first international dinner with momentum building over the next two dinners as Friday night ended with about 100 students. Each evening consisted not simply of a warm meal and good fellowship, but also a short talk introducing a question or issue in life that the Bible answers, before a 15 minute interview with an international Christian. We had a young woman who had converted from Islam, a well respected teacher from the University who shared how God challenged her to find identity in him, not in work, and a Nigerian pastor with a bounty on his head from Boko Haram who spoke of why he continues to live for Christ in an exceedingly difficult situation.
Please pray for the Holy Spirit to plant the Word deep into the lives of those who came and for a few students who seemed to move significantly forward in their search for God."
