When I started university, I was keen to find fellow Christians as soon as possible. What a pleasant surprise it was when Student Life found me on my second day! A guy called Hamish invited me to try sharing, and after some reflection God convicted me to give it a go.
I was an intense introvert, so it was pretty scary doing walk-up evangelism for the first time, but before I knew it, I was out sharing regularly, part of an Action Group, and seeing God move mightily in us and those we were reaching.
However, as God challenged me to be faithful and faith-filled in Student Life, I was blessed with more and more opportunities to share Jesus, disciple believers and build life-long friends. This led to much growth in me and others, both at UC but also in Nelson and Thailand on short-term missions. it’s incredible to think that through Student Life I’ve done regular one-on-one Bible studies with over twenty non-Christians! And to see some of them now following Christ and sharing their own faith is an inexpressible joy.
God is certainly the God who saves, and he’s able to use even lanky introverts like me for the growth of his kingdom.
