Almost Easter Dinner

It’s Friday evening and we just ended a busy day. This afternoon we hosted 9 first year university students for a pre-Easter dinner. We had turkey with all the trimmings, and apple and pumpkin pie for desert. After eating we played Uno with the girls while the guys talked and played guitars.

The only overtly “Christian” thing we did was to ask a blessing before we ate. We talked a little bit about Easter and asked if any of the teens were going to an Orthodox Church service for Easter. They all answered no, and seemed surprised that we had asked. This is all pre-evangelism as we seek to build relationships with the students and ask the Lord to continue to work in their lives. If nothing else, this at least showed us how they viewed “church and religion”.

Pray with us as we seek creative ways to show the real presence of Christ to these young men and women. We hope to have another dinner with them soon and we have invited them to feel free to drop by and see us when the can. Pray that the Holy Spirit will convict them of sin and drive them to Christ.
