The latest good news from Athens, Georgia, USA, the home of the University of Georgia:
- We collected over $115,000 at our missions contribution last Sunday! This is up from $37,000 last year! With this offering we will be planting the Clemson church and continuing in our support for the Caribbean churches.
- It was great to see God working right up to the end of the semester where we saw 4 campus baptisms over the last 2 weeks, totaling 8 baptisms for the Spring semester!
- Our Spring Banquet on Wednesday was an amazing end to the year where we honored our 8 graduates. It was our largest campus banquet ever with close to 150 in attendance including our students and campus shepherding couples.
- Interest in ministry training is up! Last year, only one student from Athens attended the summer internship program in Atlanta. This year 12 students from Athens are attending!
Sun Hee Park was met by disciples when she attended a language program in Australia, in 1994. A year later, she was invited to church by disciples in Seoul. She was the 103rd person that was baptized that summer when the church baptized over 100 people in two months. She has been a faithful disciple for 13 years and this year God blessed her in a special way. She has been appointed as professor of Ewha Women’s University, one of the most prestigious schools in Korea. She herself was a student at Ewha as a disciple. Her parents had persecuted her a lot during her college years since she was constantly reaching out to her brother and friends and committed to attend all church events. Her brother, Won Ju Park eventually was baptized. Together they did not shrink back, but continued to love, serve and preach God’s word boldly. After 13 years her parents and her sister are studying the bible. Although her parents never approved Christianity they were deeply impacted by the love of the disciples and by the faithful lives of SH and WJ. They never ceased praying for their family. God loves us so much He has a plan for each member of our family. Let us never lose heart as we persevere in our prayers for our families.
The Boston campus ministry is in the throws of a revival. Over the last several years as various challenges have impacted the church, the fervor, faith and impact of the campus ministry waned. Many battles have been fought to restore the hearts and minds of the students. As 2007 came to a close the Boston campus ministry has seen multiplied workers, increased unity and the most conversions seen since 2002: 16 conversions have taken place. There have been souls saved at MIT, Harvard, BC, Emmanuel and others.

We are thrilled to have these young people, full of vision dreams and energy, storming our three big Lagos campuses, the University of Lagos; the College of Medicine of the University of Lagos and the Yaba College of Technology.
The interns are (centered) Yinka Fowowe, Christie Edi, Onyinyechi Iwuoha and Adeniyi Adeyemi. We are excited about the impact they will make on our campus ministry and even on the entire church. THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US.
