Testaments at Freshers’ Week

As students make their return to college or university for another year, we have been encouraged by Gideon Branches around the country with news of what they have been doing to reach the lost for Christ in colleges and universities.

Below is one of those encouragements, an email from Kim, but check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for more encouragements.

Dear Gideons,

Amongst all the other stalls, I was so pleased to see a stall of Bibles at the Fresher’s Fair on Thursday 29th September at the University of Brighton. It’s so important the work you do and I really do think how commendable it is to be the light and salt of the earth in such a practical way. The green student Bible is not only very beautiful, it is also compact enough to carry with me wherever I go and easy enough to read on my commute to university or during my free periods in-between lectures.

I am so grateful for the Bible and how it has enhanced my walk with the Lord by acting as a constant reminder, a form of support as well as a companion of wisdom. I will treasure the gift as a memory of my first week at University. Long may your ministry continue until the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This email serves to say how grateful I am and may God richly bless you for all your wonderful work!

Many thanks

In Christ,  Kim

Please pray that more Gideon Branches will gain access to colleges and universities and many students will come to faith in Christ.

Pray that colleges and universities presently closed to The Gideons will open.

Pray for Christian students, that they will be bold in their witness for the Lord Jesus
