I’m a little behind on getting through some of my emails, but got to this one today from Brenda Sanders. What a priviledge we have to pray for the Texas Baptist students that will be a part of Go Now this year.
One of my favorite times of year here at the BGCT is when the Go Now poster comes out with all of the faces of the students serving for that year.
We have a chance to pray for the students that will be on that poster this year. Here are the details.
Discovery Weekend for Go Now Missions student applicants is a month away!
In just a few weeks, hundreds of university students from across Texas will interview to be student missionaries through Go Now Missions. These interviews will take place during Discovery Weekend, February 20 & 21, at Pioneer Drive Baptist Church in Abilene and at First Baptist Church in Bryan.
From Jan. 25-Feb. 25 we invite you to pray along with us as we pray for all of the details for Discovery Weekend and for each place we will send students. Click on the link below to get the prayer calendar. Please feel free to copy it and share with your church, BSM, family and friends.
If you are interested in being a part of the 24 Hour Prayer Chain during Discovery Weekend, please click here to sign up. This will be updated at least once a day as people sign up to pray. We will also send you more information on the schedule of Discovery Weekend so you may be able to pray in specific ways.
1 Corinthians 2 : 1 – 5 says, “When I came to you, brothers, I didn’t come with eloquence or superior wisdom as proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power.” Now is the time to pray for students to go, knowing nothing but Christ!
Praying with you,
Student Missions Consultant
