Our orientation outreach has increased 300%! Or...whatever going from 31 surveys to 108 surveys is, that's how much it's increased. 30, 61, 108, then finally last night we had another 100 surveys will out! So just about 300 surveys fill out now!
We are happy with the increase and are praying that God might draw the right number of students and right students into our community early this coming Fall. We already have an email campaign started for the students who said "yeah, contact me and email me this summer". From the first three orientation sessions we emailed over 110 students an html email with some real basic introduction to Equip, and some helpful tid-bits about Brookings and other helpful things.
Praise God, and please pray that he might be drawing and working on these students' hearts to love Jesus and be convicted to get plugged into the ministry early. We are excited to hopefully even have several bible study locations already set up and ready to go in some of these students's rooms.
