Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I have been thinking a lot about mission fields. I have gone to Nigeria to share the gospel. I have gone downtown in Bozeman, MT and in Helena, MT and those places I have always looked at as mission fields though Africa more so than other places. In my mind I have viewed Montana State University as a mission field, but never have I really done anything on the campus besides personal (friendship) evangelism, until now.
There are over 14,000 students on Montana State University campus and so we have given out gospel tracts to roughly 2.9% of the students on campus in the last three weeks. That is not a whole lot. There are about 500 student that are Muslims. Those are the ones I love to talk to the most. There are many students that would claim Christianity as their religion or that they have some back-round in it. I will not make estimation to the percent that is. I hope that by doing this it will encourage other believers to share their faith also. That it will convict those who claim to be Christians of their lifestyle and that they might repent and those who do not yet believe will come to knowledge of the One who died on the cross for them.
Today we went out on the campus to share the gospel with some of my fellow students. This is the third week that we have gone out to hand out gospel tracts and talk with those who want to talk. First of all I want to thank those of you who have been praying for us. The Lord is working. We are getting the gospel into the hands of the students and some are stopping to talk with us. Today we had to move to a different part of campus because the Mormons were out giving out hot chocolate in our normal spot, not wanting to be associated with them, we moved down the way to right outside of the Engineering building where there were plenty of people. People would trickle past and many of them would take the gospel tracts and if they would not, they very politely said no thanks.
Please continue to:
Pray that the eyes of the lost would be opened to the truth of the gospel.
Pray that we would have continual boldness.
Pray that the Lord would be glorified and use us for His glory.
Pray that we might be able to meet with some of the students and continue to meet with them.
Thank you for all your prayers. I am so excited to see how the Lord continues to work and I will keep you all updated on these things.
Your brother and servant of Christ,
