April was a month of challenges - but not in the way you may think. Our Student Leadership Team challenged ACT to do more than just talk about prayer, fasting and daily Bible reading. The group was challenged to be accountability partners for each other through our challenges. Both a daily challenge and a twenty four hour fasting and prayer marathon involved most of our students. God did some amazing work during this time.
Our Bible Study in the Book of James has concluded. We were excited with the number of students who participated from beginning to end. We have already chosen our Fall Term study which will begin with the book of Philippians. It is so great to see our students interact with Scripture in a deep and fulfilling way!
As mentioned previously, we attempted to help our students develop a habit of daily Bible reading and prayer through a Bible reading challenge which concluded on April 8. It was great to celebrate the successful completion of this effort with two large tables FILLED with students at Texas Roadhouse. It was fun - but with a purpose. We are excited to see where God may be leading.
Lots of deep prayer, fasting and Bible reading may have defined the month of April for us, but there was also time for fun. We held a “Minute To Win It” night where our basement was filled with laughter watching our students navigate several fun and crazy challenges. Our month also began with what has become an annual tradition: an all Toledo, all UT Campus Scavenger Hunt! Students were sent out across the city of Toledo following clues to see if they can complete our hunt with clues provided by our leadership team. Once the hunt was over, we enjoyed a dinner for everyone back at the ACT UT Campus House!
God continues to do a great thing through the ministry of Active Christians Today and we thank you so much for your support!
