It doesn’t matter which nation we’re talking about: their future leaders are on high school, college and university campuses. Virtually all world’s presidents, prime ministers, senators, members of parliaments, bankers, lawyers, judges, teachers, doctors, and business leaders have passed through the college and university system. In other words, the campus is where we find the future influencers in every critical aspect of a nation’s culture. Historically, the campus has been a seedbed of culture shapers and world leaders – sometimes good, sometimes for evil. If we reach them with the gospel now, they will one day change the world for Jesus. Imagine if these students are given the opportunity to hear about Jesus and follow His example to live a life of leadership, integrity, faith and excellence!
This is Michael Malaluan. Last year, he graduated MAGNA CUM LAUDE in Notre Dame of Dadiangas University with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Medical Technoogy. In 2009, he was reached out by a campus missionary and was introduced to Jesus.
This is how he describes how God changed him, "Before, I was doing well in school because I was just driven by pressure from parents and the insecurity and longing to be noticed and appreciated/affirmed by an award or by people. Meeting Jesus totally changed my perspective and it freed me from the frustrating cycle of performing and feigning. Knowing that I am loved even in my flaws, I stopped running after people's opinions. It made me unafraid to improve and to my best despite my inevitable failures. Because even at my failure, real Love accepts me. I started to improve more not because I ran after acceptance but because I ran after honoring the One who loves me 'coz He deserves my best in every thing."
