After a somewhat quiet summer break, life is buzzing again around the University of the Philippines campus in Los Baños (UPLB). With the start of classes and registration, our Campus Ministry team is back up and going! Our team spends about 8 hours a day at the university campus looking for students with free time and seeking to engage them in conversations about the gospel! When not walking around campus or sitting on the field talking with students, you’ll find our group hanging out in our student center playing Ping-Pong, laughing with students or meeting with different ones to study the Bible. The team’s focus is evangelism and discipleship and it’s exciting to see the different opportunities they use to achieve these goals!
By God’s grace we have over 20 students regularly meeting with our staff for discipleship! This past Thursday night the team kicked off their weekly Bible Club meeting with 24 current students and 3 alumni coming back to join the fun! Friday afternoon the staff and students hosted an evangelistic puppet show in partnership with a church in Calamba and were able to share the gospel with over 44 people! The church was excited to have 8 kids and 1 mother show up for Sunday School the following Sunday as a result of this outreach!
Praise the Lord for how He is at work on the UPLB campus and in the lives of those who have heard the gospel as a result of this recent outreach! Please pray for our Campus Ministry Team as they seek to reach students at UPLB with the gospel of Jesus Christ and then help them grow in their walk with Him!
