Two Intense Weeks

Let me try to summarize...

On the 9th and 10th, I had the chance to spend time with Mike Fontenot, who's leading a great church in Virginia Beach. He exhorted the leaders, then lead a Bible talk on campus, and then preached for the mid-week service. He gave us specific challenges and its clear that this year will be make or break.
On the 12th, I presented an English version of the presentation I did at UQAM in december with a few trimmings. I presented it at CCF. The Q&A was intense, as many people in the crowd did respond to the part where I showed that early Christians believed in baptism for salvation. Sidenote, did you know that a person who studies the Bible before baptism was called a catechumen? He was a believer only after being baptized.
That weekend, we welcomed a few singles from the Lowell (MA) church. It was a nice experience and I had the chance to get to know some really nice disciples too.
I'll try to see if there is a way to go support their Campus ministry and reverse.

The week was boring, as I was doing non-research work for my supervisor. Some things just need to be done.
On Friday, we had a devotional with a lot of guests and Mexican food. Yuuuuuuum! I also had a study with a guy on the topic of baptism who was really open and humble. This is a rare and delightful occurence.
Afterwards, a few brothers and I did a night of prayer. It was my first one. And the first coffee in many years...
On Saturday, I had another study with two Haitian guys who have quite a few unorthodox beliefs. Very interesting discussion nevertheless.

The campus ministry is doing good. People are sharing their faith, dating their sister (only one in the campus), bringing guests to the devotionals, etc. And I have faith that it'll get better. The best part is that I don't have to do it all, delegation is JUST WORKING!!!! yiiiiiiiiiiihhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

P.S. I've finally settled on gym, badmiton and pilates for my training program this semester. Pray for my discipline!
