Ramapo College

Two days of meetings were held at Ramapo College in New Jersey, though we stayed in Ramapo for about a week, and our whole time there was a tremendous blessing. The fellowship with the Christians on campus was so very wonderful, and we were ministered to as much as we ministered to the college due to the precious saints who were there. Praise God!

Before we came to Ramapo, many of the believers on campus had already acquired a new zeal for evangelism and for open air preaching, so it was as if the Lord led us there at just the perfect time. We spent several evenings sharing with one another, and Miles, Evan and myself did a small seminar on Christian apologetics one night. We visited Montclair State University, which was nearby, during the week, and also traveled to New York City one day to spread the gospel and visit Time Square Church, the church of brother David Wilkerson. That was awesome.

We drew a small crowd both days which were civil and inquisitive. It was a refreshment from the two wild campuses we had previously experienced in Pennsylvania. Here is a taste of what it was like at Ramapo, taken from day two:

God truly blessed our time spent in the New Jersey area. I very much hope to travel down to Ramapo once again some day.

"For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God." (Ephesians 3:14-19)
