This is Main. We met a year ago when I went to visit her campus in Pachuca (which is outside of Mexico City). This weekend at Passion, Main came running up to me and says, "Emily do you remember me? I'm Main from Pachuca!" And of course I remember her...going to Pachuca was one of the highlights of my fall semester. I loved the students there and their creativity to share the Gospel with their friends. Main and Javo said that they have a new group of students that want to grow in their faith. So now they are working with the former group and the new group...launching movements in Pachuca.
What a sweet blessing it was to see Main. I can't wait to go back to Pachuca and meet the new students.
I hear these words and (once again) it sends my heart beating quickly. Standing at Passion Mexico City this weekend was a sobering for me because sadly I am no longer in "this" generation of students. My generation has passed.
My prayers for this university generation in Mexico is: - they would not just have an emotional experience with Jesus Christ but that they would know him and would be wrecked to move in the direction of changing the world because of that experience. - that students would know that faith is more than a list of do's and don't's - that the universities would be awakened to the glory of Jesus and their peers would be the carriers of that light.
Christy Nockels sang on the tour and Jesus met me in the middle of these words.
