i) Building a strong relationship between the college and parish.
ii) For our church members to try things evangelistically we wouldn’t naturally do – take a risk!
iii) Many more people than usual to hear the good news of Jesus and be saved.
I believe God has answered these prayers better than we could have expected. I know of one young man who committed his life to Jesus last week and what rejoicing there is in heaven! Many heard the gospel because you invited them, people chatted to them on their doorstep or on the streets, or through special events.
