UT Knoxville BCM Evangelism Emphasis Week
The students at UT Knoxville BCM recently had an Evangelism Emphasis week where they intentionally shared their faith with fellow students. Here are some of their stories:
“Last Wednesday myself and another student approached a girl in the library. We told her that we were out doing a survey, and asking people spiritual questions. We told her that if she asked us any spiritual questions that we would give her a water bottle. She was very willing to talk to us, and she said that she believed in God. She told us that she had a friend that had asked her 2 really hard questions that she couldn’t answer. God ordained that meeting. She needed answers to her questions, and God provided answers through the water bottle ministry. Philippians 4:19, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
A student was working with the water bottle survey and ran into someone unexpected. Her 8th grade year she went to Belize and worked in an orphanage. She saw one of the orphans she got to encourage there in Belize on UT’s campus! God’s providence brought her to Derek a second time! She got to remind him about their encounter and he was so amazed that she remembered him. She shared about the BCM and the opportunities to grow closer to Christ. He is an atheist but she asked him to visit the BCM and he said he would try to come!
It was an amazing week of outreach on the UT Knoxville campus for the BCM! Please pray as they follow up with the contacts the students made that they will be able to lead many students to Christ.
