It was fantastic to be part of ANCON2016 - the Sydney Uni Evangelical Union’s Annual Conference. I had the opportunity to spend time with students from Economics, Business, Law and Vet. I shared with these students what God is doing in our University in Peru and encouraged these students to think about serving in places that are less resourced and less reached.
The organisation and scale of the student movement was an inspiration. There were about 680 students at the week long event with many students in leadership. Let’s pray that we will one day have hundreds of university students in Arequipa praising God.
Singing "O Praise the Name of the Lord our God”. I love that song.
I took the opportunity to chat with students and staff on how the students ministry work and what I could take back to Peru. How do just 27 staff look after the 700+ students who are part of the Christian group on campus? How are students discipled and trained for ministry and leadership? What systems are necessary to make all this possible?
