An Update from Matt & Michelle
I recently received this update from Michelle Swaney, who, with her husband Matt, ministers to college students through Campus Crusade for Christ. If you have any questions on how to stay connected with Michelle and Matt, contact our Elder for Worldwide Mission, Kirk Brown!
"Just wanted to update you on our “go and make” progress. Mind you, there were many others involved in this process as well - but since Matt and I helped to plan and run the conference, wanted to give you and update on our time at our Regional Winter Conference that took place in San Diego, CA.
The conference took place December 28th, 2010 to January 1st, 2011, which included a day of faith, where staff and students went out sharing in San Diego. On this day of faith, 700 students and about 170 staff went out sharing for about 4 hours and saw this happen:
- 683 spiritual conversations
- 365 gospel presentations
- 37 people indicated decisions for Christ
- 39 people prayed to be filled with the Holy Spirit
Thank the Lord that we will be able to have local San Diego churches follow up with these 37 new believers!
Last semester we saw a little over 80 people come to Christ in our region. I’m checking on my actual reported stats, but as an estimate, I, with only half-time on-campus and a big emphasis on growing women in their faith, had over 30 gospel presentations and 50+ spiritual conversations!"
Please continue to keep Michelle and Matt in your prayers as they seek to share the good news of the gospel message in Orange County!
