Today was the last day of the workshop. The English with Friends team, along with Des, Allison, Charley, and I, were honored at the closing ceremony by the students and the faculty! All of us firmly believe that a long term relationship has been formed and future opportunities to work with this university will arise.
The workshop itself, though, was awesome! Over the 5 days we covered topics like American Idioms, American Life, Marketing, Advertising, and How to Make a Resume. All of the kids found it to be extremely useful! We were happy to have the opportunity to meet with the students throughout the week at coffee shops and begin sharing what we believe about the Father! Already, wonderful questions are being asked and fruitful conversations are being had! Please continue praying for these 100+ students and that He will prick their hearts.
Since the workshop is over, we are going to start our follow-ups with "seekers" and those who have identified as believers. With less than 2% of the population identify as believers, they need plenty of encouragement.
The English club Wednesday night was a success! All four of us got LOTS of phone numbers of students who want to meet with us later. We're looking forward to going back next Wednesday!
Please be praying for our team about who we should meet with, and that the students we meet will ask questions that fund their answer in the Father.
