Austin

Recently some friends and I went to a local college to share the gospel with students who were walking around outside. We were pleasantly surprised how friendly and open to discussion the students were!

If you’d like, you can listen in on a conversation our friend Brad had with a student name Austin. I edited it down because it was a pretty long conversation. Please pray that Austin will place his faith in Christ! We left him with a Begin book, which I highly recommend giving to unbelievers.

Often we think that people will be uninterested, when that is simply not true! The people we talked with at the college truly appreciated the conversations about spiritual things and were grateful that we stopped them to talk. I only wish we could have talked to all 17,000+ students … [smile] (I.e. we need to pray for more laborers unto the harvest!!!)

  1. Using the ten commandments is a really great approach. My husband and I have taught a “Way of the Master” class at our church, and have found it very practical and effective.

  2. Grace, you’re faithfulness to witness challenges me! πŸ™‚ I look forward to watching the video! I think there are many of us who would like to go with you and see how an outreach like this works. πŸ™‚ Thanks for giving us a little chance to see witnessing live!

    With a smile,

  3. Thanks for sharing this! It’s helpful to watch/hear more experienced Christians witness; I want to witness for Christ, and it’s definitely good to see examples!!! Praying for Austin, who reminds me of my unsaved cousin.

  4. Thank you for posting this, Grace. It was truly a neat video to see how he presented the gospel.
    I’ll be praying for Austin.

  5. Finally got around to watching this video, Grace. What an awesome conversation! I still haven’t made it past handing people a track and hightailing it out of there :P, but seeing this is definitely a motivator to work on improving. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Hi Grace!
    Last fall a small group of us went to a collage campus to share the gospel. We are hoping to do it again soon. From your experience, what seems to be the best time for getting into conversations with students? When we went last time, it worked great to give out tracts as people were coming and going from classes, but most of them were in too much of a rush to stop and talk.
    By the way, I really enjoyed reading Will Our Generation Speak! As I read through it I just kept smiling, and saying, “Amen!” That is one book I wish every young Christian would read…and old ones too! πŸ™‚ The Lord is being glorified by it.
    Thanks so much!

  7. Hi Karen! I think that afternoons and early evenings seem to be good for college campuses because there are usually a lot of students around at those times. But sometimes weekends are good too (if students live on campus) because it’s less likely that the students are on a schedule trying to get the next class. So I think that it depends on the college, and both times can be good!
    May God bless and guide you!
    Grace
