The Lord has connected us with Fatima (not her real name), a twenty-year-old sophomore from a Muslim background. Her father is Pakistani, and her mother is a nominal Catholic who converted to Islam. When Fatima was twelve, she had a dream in which Jesus spoke to her, “If you will lean on me, I will love you forever.” Since that time, Fatima has secretly followed Jesus in her heart. In December, she finally told her parents of her decision to commit her life to Christ. They are threatening to disown her. We are meeting with her on a weekly basis to encourage her. She’s also participating in the Truth Project. A friend of ours with another campus ministry is trying to find a Christian family that would house Fatima. Please pray for Fatima and for us as we seek to minister to her.
We recently had productive meetings with both the Campus Crusade campus staff team and the student prayer leadership. Crusade could be a key ally in beginning campus-wide prayer and hopefully planning either a Jubilee or a 24/1 prayer event later this semester. We are currently meeting with the leadership of other Christian fellowships at Mason to encourage them to embrace a campus-wide prayer vision. Pray that they would grasp the vision with enthusiasm and commit to work together.
Please continue to pray for the Lord’s blessing on ministry opportunities at both campuses. Ask Him to ignite a revival fire in the hearts of students from all the different ministries at both GW and Mason.
