One day until our wedding! Can you believe it??
We cannot! So much has been happening in our personal lives as well as ministry life and we have so much to share! Just know that God has done so much in our group on campus and within the Church. He is uniting believers in His name… pray that God would continue to provide students to train up as leaders. Pray that the passion for His name would grow.
And now, for the wedding that is SO soon:
If you would like to tune in, 4:30am Central time /5:30am Eastern, you can watch our wedding.
I am not promising a perfect live stream but you may get a semblance of the ceremony
Hope many of you can join us at qik.com/katieb822
for our Wedding!
We shared earlier that JOY has been our semester’s theme because we had various church leaders and students share on any passage from Phillippians while drawing out this them, along with the ultimate satisfaction that Christ brings when we find our ultimate JOY in Him– a message we all need to hear! It has been an amazing semester together and we finished it off with an Easter celebration in the middle of campus. The students had the idea to worship together there .(In the photo below you will see Maik beside Sun Yat Sen’s statue, just in case you were wondering.) They used the opportunity also to share about our organization with students passing by in hopes to get the word out and hopefully share the love of God with more students. Please continue to pray that the seeds planted will grow and relationships will come about that continue this movement on God on campus– that more will know the JOY that comes from Him alone.
We talked about resurrection power and how when we ponder the truth that Jesus arose from the dead that it is LIFE-CHANGING! One student who is from Africa shared about how it’s so powerful that all these years people have tried to refute the resurrection of Christ, yet none have been able to do so. The evidence is greater that our Savior LIVES! So there we were, in the middle of campus, sharing these things. A teacher walked by and began to talk to another student in Cantonese. He was mad at God and was struggling with some life issues as well. The student was able to pray for him and he stayed for our entire time of singing!
We finished on a joyful note, singing “How Great is Our God” over the campus. It was so powerful to us personally because some of our friends from other Cantonese Christian campus organizations joined us and were excited for the “next time” we all worship together. God is truly drawing His people together! What a gift it is that he would put us in touch with this network of Students who want to see their campus turned upside down for Christ!
Ironically, once we finished, I saw this:
In case you didn’t know, there is Buddhist Center on campus, but for that we are thankful because it’s paving the way for a Christian Center. Check out this post for a little more about that.
Here is some of our group at the end. I am so proud to be a part of it and to have a front row seat to seeing God work miracles in these hearts! May they lead the next generation into passionate pursuit of true joy, hope, and love:
the person of Jesus!
