Surrounded by Muslims and Buddhists, Calvin is Saved at SMSU!

  • A Changed Life

    Jen got a Call from a student at SRU.  She got to hear a story of a female SRU student that she had talked to a few times.  The young lady had heard the gospel while talking to Jen on campus.  She realized the evil in her homosexual relationship.  She repented and placed her trust in Jesus.  She started going to a good church during the summer.  She decided to go to a different college this year, so she would not be tempted by the LGBTQ culture at SRU.  We are so grateful to God.   Please pray for her.

    The First week in August I spent in NYC.  We had 2 days of training for the Campus Leaders and then several days of outreach.  We did many interesting outreaches on the subways.  We had several sinners anonymous meetings.   One gentlemen comes into the subway car thanking everyone for coming to the meeting.  He asks for people to give their testimony and then when no one does he gives his own.  Then he pleads with people again to stand up and give their testimony.  After a third plea one of us stands up and gives our testimony.  Here is a picture of me giving my testimony of coming to Christ.  Then two others stand up and give their testimony.  As you can see by the young lady here everyone is listening and surprised.    In the one location we did this others had almost been arrested for preaching the gospel a few days earlier and we had the same guards tell the complainers to sit and be quiet so that they could see all that would happen.    A little creativity can go a long way for finding a way to share the gospel.  Many people heard the gospel.

    The parks in NYC are a wonderful place to witness.  People go to the parks to interact with others.  We had many wonderful conversations.   These two had many questions and ended up talking to several Christians about Jesus.  Pray that God is changing their hearts.

    Hundreds of people heard the gospel via open air evangelism in the parks.  God drew several large crowds to hear the gospel throughout the week.  Some crowds gather because of apologetics like here.

    We gathered crowds using IQ tests and trivia as well.  Either way everyone heard a good gospel message.  What a wonderful week we had in NYC.

Surrounded by Muslims and Buddhists, Calvin is Saved at SMSU!

“My testimony is simple,” says Calvin. “I was raised with a Christian background, but as I went to college, I wandered away. There were many religious influences that tried to grab my attention. I had Muslims and Buddhists trying to share their views about God with me. I was attracted to the moral aspects of these religions, and I also desired to find a way to make peace between people of different faiths. When Pastor John, CCN Campus Leader, and Jake, a CCN member, came around from Change Collegian Network (CCN), I was never offended when they shared the Gospel with me; I always took it to heart. I tried to apply everything they taught me, and that included attending church, as well as seeking to study the Bible. Then, something happened in September of 2011. I attended homecoming with a group of my friends and all of the godly things that I was attempting to live by, went out the window. I laid in bed that night fighting with myself about whether I should get up and go to church, or sleep off the prior night’s activities. I chose to attend Pastor John's church, and during our time of praying and sharing, I tried to express myself, but I couldn’t. I went silent for a while and put my head in my hands and cried out to God to save me. I realized at this point that my deeds would not save me, but what Christ had done for me. It was only His righteousness that could make me right. Now, out of gratitude, I want to be more like Him.”

-From Calvin's Baptism Testimony

"Calvin is our dear brother in Christ through the preaching of the Word. He has believed on the Lord Jesus alone for salvation, and he has shown evidence of his conversion. His life has been changed, and he has handed his priorities over to the Lord. One of the best testimonies I’ve heard is not from Calvin, but from the lips of his roommate, William. William has testified of how he has seen a change in Calvin, and how Calvin has helped him to consider his own walk with Christ. It is not because of something that Calvin has done for himself, but rather he has turned his life over to God, trusting in Christ alone, and submitting to the direction of the Holy Spirit. Calvin continues to attend the CCN fellowship at SMSU, and will be attending our upcoming Leadership Summit as well as Repent and Witness Evangelism Camp this August 2012.  Please pray for him as these new experiences will prepare him to go back on the campus in September to sow into others."

-From Campus Leader John Chisham @ Calvin's Baptism

Thank God for CCN! Because of this ministry on the campus, people are getting saved, and they are turning around and becoming ministers on the campus! This is the second conversion and baptism resulting from our ministry on the campus.  Please pray for and support Change Collegian Network, because there is a great need on college campuses, and this ministry is doing it's part to fulfill it!
