This year, the Southern Catalytic Team joined the Victorian Area and are seeing fruit as they benefit from living closer to campuses they are pioneering in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. They praise God for their first ever Tasmanian student at Mid Year Conference and seeing Naomi trust God to build a movement in her final year at Monash Caulfield!
During semester one, Naomi connected with Zeli, Franklin and Suzan, exchange students from China who were interested in exploring Christianity. Together they went through Christianity Explained (CE) course and even attended Naomi’s church. Zeli and Franklin made a commitment to follow Christ and Suzan expressed that she was not ready but still interested. For the rest of the semester, Naomi lead them through First Steps, helping them to grow as new Christians. Franklin attended Mid Year Conference and now desires to make disciples with students on campus.
Second semester, Naomi and Franklin were looking for students who wanted to share their faith or know more about Jesus. Jacinta joined them as a committed leader and led a student through CE on her own. Naomi and Franklin did CE with two Chinese students. Naomi also led a CE with a couple other students. Two other Christians expressed interest and joined in a CE session to learn how to share their faith.
The team thanks God all five Christian students have applied for Summer Project! Please pray for courage to share the gospel and for the salvation of the five students doing Christianity Explained.
