“I’ve been encouraged lately with opportunities to come alongside university students and explore missions together. When we take a glimpse into the past, we see that prayer, university students and missions movements are linked throughout history. The American mission movement was born in 1806 after five university students held a prayer meeting under a hay­stack while taking refuge from a thunderstorm. They discussed the spiritual darkness in Asia, every Christian’s responsibility to do some­thing, and then they prayed. As a result of that moment, those men dedicated themselves to the Great Commission and the “Haystack Prayer Movement” spread, sparking the creation of mission agencies which sent many Americans overseas to preach the gospel. I am convinced that university students here will be at the heart of a missions movement. Please pray for continued opportunities to explore missions and take intentional steps towards it.”
