Wow

God is so great and so good. It's 2:15 and we just got home from chapel. For those of you who don't find this odd, chapel is scheduled from 10-11. After the closing prayer, Natasha Erskine got up and spoke what the Holy Spirit had layed upon her heart. At first I was like "O come on", but I thank God for her obedience. The next three hours were spent in prayer. This was the number one priority as classes were excused and lunch was skipped. God moved and is moving on this campus. Bethany Bible College, as a whole, has been spiritually dead. It's no secret that many of us have put on our good Christian masks and have just been living. Not anymore. God is moving. He worked in such a powerful way the last four hours. I don't know, there may still be people in the chapel praying and if there is, sweet. I truly believe that this wasn't just an experience. Lives were changed today. I expect to see a great revival on campus, spreading to the churches we attend, and the town of Sussex. This is for real. Hearts were broken. Relationships were mended. Unity in Christ filled that small chapel. I'm stoked to see where God is going to lead individuals and this campus. It is a sweet thing to be a part of. Praise God for obedient servants like Natasha and for all those who have been diligently praying to see the revival take place. Please be praying for our campus, that we don't go back to our routine, placing other stuff above Christ. Please be praying for me, that I don't go back to my old routine. Have a great day everyone. much love becky

  1. Hey Becky!
    Today was definitely a WOW day! I have never experienced God moving like He did today and I am forever changed from this experience. I think that we all wanted to believe that we were a godly campus and full of grace and compassion, but we weren't. I am fully convinced that God is moving and He won't stop until life on earth is ended. I hope and pray that the campus does not go back to "normal". I am so thankful for chapel today...I was the same as you at first, thiniking "ughh, I want to go", but God changed my heart. Dan said that they had longer chapel services last semester, but not this long. I am so thankful to have been there. I am praying for both you and Jeff...please pray for me as God is doing a huge work in my as well.

    all my love,

  2. Chapel was amazing. So much happenend there, so many old wounds, fears, struggles, and everything else was laid bare before the Father. A lot of healing will come out of this service. It was so refreshing. God certainly has good things in store for this campus.
