We also had the orientation week at Open Window. This was the first year where we were able to have a strong presence during the orientation week. We set up a coffee station for the students from where we just had many conversations with a short survey.
From this we learned that yes, there are students who are not sure whether God exists or not, but all of them either said yes or maybe to the question of whether they would be willing to explore if God does exist or not.
We also got to introduce students to our campus society and start to share the heart of who we are and what we do. Being able to present the campus society has really been a great help as it gives us a "reason" to be on campus and build relationships with students.
We also met with Christo who is now in charge of the Student Council at Open Window. We briefly shared our ideas and passion for the students and he is very open to hear more. We also met Davida who is the president of the SC. By God's plan Davida is someone we actually engaged on campus last year. Although she is spiritually very confused, we know that this is not by change. We also met with another SC member, Pam, who is a believer and looking for a church.
We really believe that this will be a year of massive harvest on our campuses all throughout Tshwane! We are trusting not just for people to come to church or to join a society, but for those who are lost to be saved! We have so many hurting, broken and spiritually confused students in our city - God has sent us to them!
