Sirens are sounding!
When firefighters are called into action, they grab their gear and make haste. There is an emergency; a slow response could be fatal. The sirens are sounding! God is calling us to rally and reach the foreigner, but do we know why we go?
The verse God has put upon ISMC's ministry in Sherbrooke for 2017 is Acts 9:15. “Go, because he’s my chosen instrument to carry my name to unbelievers, to their kings, and to the descendants of Israel.” God gave Ananias the instruction to go because somebody needed to tell Paul that Christ was calling him to great things. We know what happened next: lives were saved and churches emerged everywhere. God used Ananias to impact one person who changed the world.There are international students in our midst who are chosen by God to bring nations to Christ. This is why we move hastily - for lives are at stake.
Tuesday 11:43 a.m., I received a text message from an international student. It read, "Nicole, come baptize me". At noon, people gathered by the river to hear her proclaim that she belonged to Christ.
As she publicly declared her faith, we praise God for his work in the lives of all our students. He is faithful and brings his work to completion. Leviticus 26:9, "I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers, and I will keep my covenant with you".
To this friend,
It was a privilege to welcome you to Sherbrooke and into my home late August 2015. We had long conversations, marvelled at the blood moon and ate some tasty food. You taught me to make brigadero and helped me with ISMC stuff. some of my friendships are stronger than ever because of you. You taught me a lot and I'm a better person because of you.
Thank you for the honour of standing by you on this important day.
Each international student connects with us for different reasons. As we respond to their distinct needs, relationships develop. They get attached to the community and spread the word.
"Nations you do not know will come running to you, because of the Lord your God (...) for he has endowed you with splendour" Isaiah 55:5. God fulfills his promises. Notoriety is growing and people are running to us!
