My name is Rebecca, and I am serving on the WKU Experience 1:8 team! I just wanted to send an update and an amazing praise that occurred while in Columbus!
This week in Columbus we are partnering with Veritas East. This is a church plant off of a bigger church in Columbus, Veritas. With Veritas we are doing backyard bible clubs and hoping to share the love of Christ with kids in the neighborhoods surrounding the church.
Yesterday we introduced the topic with telling the kids about the creation story. We had about 11 kids. Today we had only about three kids and talked about sin and what that means for us. We acted out the scene in the garden and then played some games that tied into the theme of sin. Towards the end we were in a group asking for prayer requests.
During this time of prayer requests a little boy Ali had asked me and a guy named Eric to step aside with him. Ali informed us that he wanted to accept Christ into his heart. We talked with him, asked him questions, and read a few key verses to him (Romans 6:23 & Romans 10:13). After this God through us was able to lead Ali to Christ. He prayed and received him. After we got done praying he looked up, thrusted his arms into the air and said "JESUS!!"
What a great praise and beautiful thing this is! We now have a new brother in Christ.
Please join in with me and praying for Ali, that he will dig deeper into the bible and what it means to follow Christ. Also please pray that he will have courage to tell his parents and his friends of his new found identify in Jesus!
Thank you for all of your prayers already!
Have a blessed day,
