Garage Giveaway & the Gospel
In September, the UT Dallas BSM had the opportunity to partner with a few other campus ministries to participate in the “Garage Giveaway”, their annual furniture give away to international students. The BSM students partner up with each other, pick up a few names of international students, then head to their apartments to meet them and help them get the furniture they need. This year, Jamie and Eric went to visit a few Indian students who were needing furniture. While they were waiting for the truck to bring them what they needed, they had the opportunity to share the Gospel with the students! Jamie said they were able to clearly outline the Gospel with the students. Although they did not respond in that moment, they were able to clearly hear the Gospel for the first time! It is exciting to see how God uses opportunities to meet physical needs in order to share the Gospel!
Pausing & Praying with you,
Ways to Pray
- Pray for the UTD staff: That we will be united in focus and able to communicate effectively with our students and each other this semester
- Pray for the UTD BSM leadership: Pray that God will continually be growing the passion they have to share with other students on campus who don’t know Him!
- Pray for the UTD campus: That we can find new and effective ways to reach out to the international students, which make up almost a quarter of our school’s population.
- Pray for student G* to come to know Christ, an international student, who I (Jenny) and a few of our students have had the chance to befriend throughout these first few weeks of school.
