Yesterday evening we had the opportunity to perform for a campus ministry at OCC called BASIC. It was a very enjoyable evening! The young men who were there when we arrived helped us unload, which was very much appreciated!!
We performed Alive and Lifesongs. It's amazing how much easier it is to worship during a performance when you can sense that the audience is recieving the message! Sometimes it feels like there is a wall between the dancers and the audience, but that wasn't the case yesterday. It was such a blessing to be able to come before our Lord and praise him along with the college students! Rachel shared her testimony about God's faithfulness as we trust Him with our future (a message that, I'm sure, was applicable to each person in that audience).
After dancing, Ashley shared a short message on the importance of pursuing God and spending time building relationship with Him. It's so easy to get caught up in what we're doing for God...it's so easy to forget that the most important thing we can do with our lives is spend it in pursuit of the One who made us!
Before closing, we spent some time praying for and dancing over the students. One of my favorite parts was the time we got to spend getting to know them individually afterwards. I'm excited about the things that God wants to use these Christians for in the college campus as well as wherever God may take them after graduation! My prayer is that God would set each of their hearts on fire for Him to the point where they cannot contain it. How awesome would it be to see that campus set ablaze for God?!! I am so thankful for this campus ministry that provides a way for Christians to meet, be encouraged, and reach out to those around them!
