Freshman Survival Kits – EUP

jayson Edinboro, Misc, Schools 0 Comments

Today was the first day of handing out Freshman Survival Kits. We were at Edinboro and handed out 200 to students in the University Center. The FSK’s included:

– a New Testament
Blue Like Jazz by Don Miller
– a card for 3 free music downloads from PassAlong.com
– a DVD-ROM with evangelistic videos, short films and other content
– a laundry bag with an ad for EveryStudent.com (an evangelistic website)
– a flier for our weekly meeting at Edinboro
– a copy of Risen magazine containing interviews with musicians, sports figures and actors about thier faith

Our hope is was to turn up contacts of students that would be willing to be a part of the movement there as well as ones who want to learn more about Christ and what it means to follow Him. Of the 200 we gave out about a half of the people said they “might” or “would” be interested (a survey accompanied it).

Please pray that our follow up with them would go well and that students would come to know Christ as thier Saviour.

    After talking to our support coach (the amazing Tom Fraser), it’s been decided that we will be on campus for September to help with the semester’s kick off – to get things off the ground.

    The next three days we’ll be meeting with the team to decide what September is going to look like for our team and what the rest of the semester will look like. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will be working in our meetings to lead us to plan in His will.

    Also, pray that the last 9% of our support will come in before October!

    Thank you for visiting…
