Good things are afoot at Mason. You may remember Aisha, the recent convert from Islam whom we befriended last year. She is still shining! Following her recent baptism (check out the awesome video), Aisha has decided to join a local church for a missions trip to Lebanon this spring. We are excited to be meeting with her on a regular basis as she grows in her faith.
Last semester SOI 21 collaborated with other Christian groups on campus to organize a day of 24/1 Prayer during the Veritas Forum. This semester SOI 21 will partner with Campus Crusade, Chi Alpha, the Gathering, and Catholic Campus Ministry to facilitate a day of 24-Hour Prayer at Mason. We hope that a day of 24/1 Prayer will become a springboard for future corporate prayer events. We’re looking forward to what this semester holds! Here’s a glimpse of the Mason schedule:
Tent of Meeting “Prayer Evangelism” Mondays 3-5pm
Each week we set up a table outdoors (or indoors when the weather doesn’t cooperate) to pray for Mason and to pray with students who share their requests with us. We hope to become a regular, visible “presence” on the campus.
24/1 Day of Prayer Tentatively scheduled for April
Students from all the ministries on campus will gather around the clock to cry out for a great move of God at Mason and throughout the world.
Student Prayer Leadership Thursdays 4:30pm
Our first Prayer Leadership meeting was snowed out this past week, but we are on track to meet next week to begin planning for 24/1 Prayer.
