The week of lectures with John Lennox went brilliantly with great number stunning out to listen to him explain the place of belief in Jesus in today's world.
Here is what one of the Austrians wrote: "I am simply overwhelmed about what happened yesterday evening. In Vienna we had to send about 200 people away due to security reasons - still around 1000 were attending the meeting in Vienna, another 400 in Graz, 300 in Salzburg and we had about 2000 hits on youtube - we don't know how many people very sitting at home, watching the live-stream..."
This coming weekend Lindsay Brown and Richard Cunningham among others are training around 70 IFES staff, students and graduates as University evangelists. This is taking place in Novi Sad in Serbia and will be followed by many of the participants going out to run University missions in the cities where John was last week.
This is a great plan for sowing seed and then sending others out to reap it!
Please pray for:
- Those participating in the training, that they grow in their confidence in God's love for them and in their willingness to share Him with others;
- For those who have heard this last week about Jesus' Good News - that they will be met in the next weeks by Christians who can do the Philip job of explaining more;
- That the Lord would cause those who hear to open their hearts to Him, and that they would find new life in Jesus.
