FROM VICTIM TO VICTOR
Christian Anderson, university missionary recently shared this story about a student he discipled. Cody suffered from a poor family upbringing. He felt insecure and a victim of his past. When Cody came to Skagit Valley College, WA he wanted a clean start and sought to find meaning in his life with girlfriend relationships. His relationships did not bring him peace, instead left him feeling empty inside and struggling with depression.
When Cody came to Chi Alpha, he found a group of people who were “real” in their relationships and loved him for who he was. They also began sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and invited him to experience a real relationship with God.
When Cody chose to follow Christ, he went from a victim to a victor and his life completely changed. After being discipled in Christ for a year, he began actively sharing his faith. He also became a disciple-maker, pouring his life and walk with the Lord into the lives of those he led to Christ. Cody has recently graduated from SVC and has changed his career plans. He feels the Lord calling him to become a university missionary and has begun his 12-month training as a CMIT (Campus Missionary In Training) intern.
Your prayer and financial support is helping to reach more students like Cody. THANK YOU!
From the new group of missionaries I’m discipling, (from Spring Candidate Orientation), here is a partial list of campuses where they will soon be working as full time career missionaries:
- Buffalo State College, NY
- Oregon State University, OR
- Frostburg State University, MD
- Indiana State University, IN
- Oklahoma State University, OK
An interesting note: back in the early 80’s, Gregg went to Buffalo State College with a group of students as a missions outreach to pray for the campus and to share the gospel. Now over 30 years later, Gregg is discipling a new missionary who will plant ministry on that same campus. This is a great answer to prayer from 30 years previous!
