Hey all! My name is Elinor Martin and I am a Campus Mentor for the National School Project. Yesterday marked the fourth day of the spring break trip! Although we are nearing the end, great news and testimonies of God’s greatness are multiplying!
Thursday began with more event promotion at El Modena High School before school started. That labor was not in vain; during its lunch period El Modena had its largest rally to date with 130 students in attendance! One of the Biola chapter’s Campus Mentors, Emily Davis, bravely gave her own testimony following the theme of spiritual healing. There is no doubt God brought healing to the students’ lives through this event; 17 students indicated recommitments to follow Jesus and three others indicated first time decisions!
Thursday was a big day for rallies; Pacifica High School and Glen A. Wilson High School also hosted outreach events! The club leaders at Wilson HS have been fighting for months to put on a rally at their school, so this event was an incredible answer to prayer! Armed with boxes of free pizza and the gospel, students at Pacifica HS took notice. Again God was faithful as around 130 students came! Thirteen students indicated recommitments and one indicated a first time decision to follow Christ!
Our day came to a close after NSP teams went off to Glen Wilson HS, Paramount HS, El Modena HS, and Brea-Olinda High School to witness and share the gospel to students after school. Thursday was an encouraging day of witnessing because quite a few students I spoke to were believers, two in particular beamed when we asked them about our God! What a wonderfully honest reaction to see! Words just can’t cut it when it comes to a heart full of love for the Lord. In the words of one student when asked about God, “Oh! Well He is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!”
We thank you for all of your support and prayers this week, God has been faithfully answering them so please keep praying! Lastly, we would love it if you lifted up Ellen Ochoa Preparatory Academy to the Lord as there have been difficulties in getting to witness there after school as the campus is closed immediately after school and the students quickly disperse.
Above all, praise God for the lives being changed this week!
