A few weeks ago I drove down to Oxnard College to do some evangelism with Humberto, one of leaders of the young adult ministry at a local Calvary Chapel.
Humberto had already been on campus a few times (without me!) to do the Soularium Survey Table that I had shown him over lunch back in the fall. I just love his enthusiasm and love for the Lord!
The highlight for me was our conversation with Carlos. After I led the way a few times in engaging with students, Humberto said that he wanted to lead the way. I handed him the clipboard, and we approached Carlos. Immediately Carlos communicated that he doesn’t speak English! My Spanish is not that great, but Humberto is fluent (as Spanish is his first language). Humberto shared the Gospel with Carlos and had a wonderful conversation.
God is at work at Oxnard College! And He is using Humberto to reach the Spanish speakers, too.
Please pray for a movement of disciple-makers at Oxnard College!
I recently made the drive to Southern CA to meet with Jeff (a college pastor) and Humberto (a volunteer leader for the college ministry). Pastor Jeff and I had chatted on the phone for a bit regarding their church's desire to reach students at nearby Oxnard College and Ventura College. I am so glad we had the opportunity to grab lunch together and meet in person!
After showing them some simple ways to share the Gospel and make disciples on campus, Pastor Jeff turns to Humberto and says, "We need to do this! You want to take the lead?"
Humberto immediately says: "I'm on it!"
An hour later, Humberto and I are on campus talking with an administrator at Oxnard College who tells Humberto: "Here is my card; let me know when you want to come on campus and I'll set you up."
A few weeks later and I get a text from Humberto after his first time on campus doing evangelism with the Soularium Table (our spiritual survey through pictures): "We were talking to about 5 people, deep conversations! God blessed it amazingly! Oh my! Can't even explain."
I am going back later this week to do some more evangelism and disciple-making training with Humberto.
The Yorks are passionate about bringing the Gospel to the nations - especially the unreached of the world (those who have no access to the Gospel). They are convinced that the greatest impact they can have in reaching the unreached is by multiplying disciples on college campuses and equipping churches to be missional disciple-makers.
