"I got born again today", a young man from Santa Rosa Junior College said to us as we were leaving the campus the last day of preaching. Like this, we saw wonderful fruit after two days of labouring on this college in northern California, which was a real encouragement after the last campus in Fresno. Praise God!
I began preaching when we first arrived and immediately there was a crowd that gathered to hear what was being proclaimed. Everything was very civil and a lot of good questions were being asked... even the Bible professor of the college attended our meeting. We could see clearly that he was doing a great disservice to the Kingdom of God by teaching the students that the Bible was not the Word of the living God, but simply mythological tales. Many students had been influenced by his teaching, so there was a lot of apologetics that were needed to reestablish the authenticity of the Scriptures. It was obvious that Bible could withstand all scrutiny, but mere apologetics can in no way soften a hardened heart.
One young man named Brady opposed and objected against what was being preached, but afterwards followed us as we were leaving and wanted to talk more about Jesus. It was amazing to see a visible change of heart in him; his eyes grew wide as he said, "Maybe my Christian uncle has been right all along!" Brady thanked us and eagerly took a new Bible. Some Christians on campus saw this and decided to have us sponsored to return the next day.
Brother Paul Kaiser of 'Reformed Evangelist' speaking with students at the end of the day.
Paul joined up with us the first day to preach and to do an interview with us for his website, www.reformedevangelist.com. After the interview, the Bible professor and a following of his students came out to challenge us, and so we talked with them long into the evening, even after it got dark.
The following day it was raining, but even under umbrellas we gathered large crowds and had an excellent meeting. Since we were sponsored, the college allowed us to use their free speech podium which they call "Hyde Park", based on the famous Hyde Park in England. It was an awesome time of strong, clear, unashamed Bible preaching. It was a great blessing to see people come under conviction and others receive a real touch from the Lord.
"For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." (2 Corinthians 4:5-6)
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16)
Thank you for your continued prayers and support, dear saints. May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering! May Jesus Christ be lifted up that all men might be drawn unto Him. God bless.
