Even through hard times, when we prayed together in unity for healing for someone beloved, we could witness that Jesus has authority over everything. We remembered how the Lord is dealing with pain and sickness, and we are encouraged that He answers every prayer, but sometimes not as we expected it.
Afterwards many students came to us and told that this time of sharing prayer requests and coming together as brothers and sisters meant a lot to them. We really felt like a family, that can’t and won’t be divided by different backgrounds or political opinions.
Naturally, when people come together to make decisions there can be disagreements and arguments. When there was a moment of frustration between different student committees after the conference, they took a minute to pause and one of the student leaders exclaimed: “We need to pay the price for unity, because Jesus paid the price for us to be united”
Wow, what an insight! We are so proud of our students – what they learned and took away from the conference, and how eager they are to apply God’s Word to their lives!
