Good day ministry partner,
For the last 2 weeks of July we had a team in from the USA with our Athletes in Action (AIA) strategy. They spent last week on Stellenbosch University reaching out to the students. On Wednesday the Western Cape team joined them.
The key tool they used to reach the students was Soularium. The tool consists of over 40 images and 5 questions. Soularium helps to gauge where the people are at emotionally and spiritually so that we can share the gospel simply and clearly.
A colleague and I had the opportunity to talk with 3 young men. One out of the three could articulate what he believes. The other 2 clearly stated that they don’t think about their faith too much. We took them through the 4 Spiritual Laws booklet, giving them an opportunity to ask questions and get clarity on the message that we are sharing.
The student that could share what he believes, gave his heart to Christ a year ago. In our conversation he made one or two statements that I didn’t agree with, but I didn’t have clear scriptural knowledge to correct him. I shared that I didn’t agree and will need to research the topic. It’s hard to say I don’t know, but my experience thus far is that people respect my honesty and it doesn’t make me look like a know-it-all.
