As you probably already know, I have been working hard for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association towards a youth outreach in the Twin Cities called Rock the River. Part of this has been to work towards a student evangelism training conference called FM419 (after Matthew 4:19). Students who attended this are qualified to be counselors at Rock the River. We just held this, this past weekend and it was absolutely through the roof!
There were 1,582 students and youth leaders in attendance from across the state learning to share their faith with their friends. We enjoyed concerts and worship from Stellar Kart, Xross and Jus Boogie. And had timeless teaching from John Cass, JT Taylor and others.
280 students made a decision for Christ!
643 committed already to serving in Community Action Projects in Minneapolis or St. Paul this summer.
460 applied already to be counselors.
And we challenged everyone Friday night to bring canned food on Saturday morning for local food shelves, and students responded in a huge way and gave 1,112 pounds of food to the needy in the Twin Cities area.
Thank you for your prayers, faith and encouragement. God is with us!
