WOW! I love working with Christian Challenge! We had groups from the School of Mines and CU Boulder join us for 4 days of spring break, and they were amazing to work with! The days were full, and these servants worked joyfully, sharing Jesus’ light with children, teens and adults in our communities.
The Gospel went out as they shared the Easter story at two of our locations along with hot dogs and Easter egg hunts! They also taught and shared at our church services and kid’s clubs, and then lived the Gospel as they played endlessly with children and teens!
When asked what he liked best about Easter, one child said, “that you came.”
When they delivered bags of cookies (after baking 700!), inviting people to Easter services, they were surprised at the responses. They would knock and say they were with the church. At that, people’s sometimes suspicious, hard countenances would soften, and many would say, “We love the church.”
After hearing the testimony of one college student, one of our teens, obviously touched, said, “That is my story.”
One of the teens who lives at one of our communities, but who has never joined us, never once, even though she has lived there most of her life, joined this team when they went to the rec center. She has been accepted at the School of Mines, and needs some friends there to help her with what will be a massive adjustment. In a moment, God gave her that!
