An important ministry which receives funding from the Eliza Broadus Offering is our work with international students on Kentucky college and university campuses. The next International Student Conference will be Nov. 4-6 in Cave City and we have been asked to start praying for this outreach event now.
This conference is sponsored by the Kentucky Baptist Convention for the purpose of helping international students make new friends, celebrate culture, and learn about the Christian faith. Many nations will be represented in the demographics of those who attend. Many of these young people have never heard the gospel before, have never been invited into an American home, and have never been sought out by an American for friendship.
Here are the things that you can pray for:
1) pray that Jesus may be lifted up so that all may be drawn to Him.
2) pray that members from local churches across the state, who will be leading during the conference, may be filled in the Holy Spirit.
3) pray that specifically 10 international students may come to know Christ and may begin being discipled by a local church in their area.
4) pray that this may be a conference that is exciting and fun, gospel centered, and God glorifying.
