BBQ (mainly hotdogs)

Perhaps next year we'll cook more than hotdogs on the grill (we had lots of other food, too)...but regardless, we had around 150 students show up this year!  It was a good turnout, and even though a large majority of these don't get intimately involved, this event has continued to prove wise and helpful in connecting with new students.  It seemed that half the students I asked "how did you hear about this BBQ?" replied that "a friend invited me", or something like that.  So, many of them aren't even aware of Equip at all, until they show up.

Please Pray

We are now EIGHT days into a new semester!  Tonight is the second Equip Large Group Worship meeting, and I would greatly appreciate your prayers for God to work in the hearts and minds of the students he has granted us to minister to.  When I really stop and think about the responsibility that we have to preach truth to a few dozen students each week, it can give me great pause.  I believe I should feel that 'pause' much more often and more powerfully.

So please pray that God would call unbelievers to our meeting tonight, and that they would hear the gospel and God would grant repentance.

Also pray that God would grant a great increase of faith and conviction of sin to the students who are already christians.  Since I'm talking about "Justification" tonight, and since I'm speaking primarily from the text of Luke 18:9-14, I hope that those who are finding their justification in the things they do and the people they are, they would see clearer tonight that "all they have is Christ".

Ps.  I'll be posting some pictures from the past week's events in the coming couple days!  It's been a good start of a semester.
