After spending a great amount of time on campus, praying and talking to students, I finally have a few students that have said yes to being a part of LaFe! God was already at work among the Latinx community so this fall has been an adventure. I explored the campus, was rejected many times until I found the ones who were ready to say yes. Jewel was the first student I met who really got the vision for what LaFe is supposed to be about and she is growing in her faith and vision.
Last week, I had the opportunity to study Scripture with a student I met while doing outreach on campus. This student was compelled by the vision of LaFe and searching spiritually, but she was not a Christian. After looking at a story about Jesus in Mark, she said she was ready to give up everything to follow Jesus and I got to pray with her as she became a Christian right there at UIC!
Praise God with us for how He is drawing students to Himself!
