Friday, July 08, 2011Yes, more exciting news from the Prayer Table! It’s always amazing to see so many students share their prayer requests with us, especially when a single encounter begins a relationship. One friend we’ve made over the past year is a GW student named Hector. He visits us every week to share about his life and challenges in his family, regularly asking for prayer. When on one such visit a friend of his dropped by, Hector explained to him why he enjoys coming to see us every week,
“These are the greatest guys on campus. They are the friendliest and most sincere gentlemen I know. I stopped by the first time because I needed a prayer. But I’ve been coming back because I know they care about me. I’ll even tell them things that they remember to ask me about weeks or even months later. That’s how I know they care.”
We were speechless, and so was Hector’s friend.
