I passed by the table several times before stopping. The banner reading “A Free gift for You” got my attention. I spoke with Dwayna for over an hour. She told me all about Jesus and gave me a Bible. I had never prayed before, at the age of 53. I thought much about our conversation. I attended church that night and spoke with Dwayna and her pastor further about becoming a Christian. Now, I’ll never be the same again. I have started reading the Bible I got at the Lighting The Way table every day and telling people about Jesus. I called my daughter in England and said, “Are you sitting down? I have become a Christian.”DonEngland
Dear Dwayna, The University of TN has an exciting campus with so many young people about to start their adult lives apart from their parents who, more importantly, will decide their spiritual life apart from their parents. The humanists, agnostics, and liberals seem to understand the opportunity to seize the hearts and minds of the naive and confused students. I believe there is no place that has a greater need for apologetics than the college campus. I thank God everyday for people [who] helped me endure the satanic assault I was ill prepared to deal with at the time [I was in college]. No one warned me of the battle that I was to face. Whether it was evolution, ‘German Biblical Criticism’, false religions, New Age, Eastern mysticism, cults, atheism, agnosticism, or the most dangerous ‘Liberal Christianity’, my biblical faith was attacked. It seems like only yesterday, but I saw many students fall from the faith during their college days. The tools you are providing will change people’s lives. I saw satanists become Christians, party animals become pastors, the un-churched become missionaries, and liberals turn into believers. You are doing a good work… God Bless you.Scat SpringsTennessee
