STORIES / TESTIMONIES / QUOTES:
Each night, our PULSE team has stayed at our table until near closing as people line up to receive Gospels of John, prayer, or share their stories. Here are a few testimonies from the weekend:
This weekend, God moved! Numerous cutters were delivered (including more adults than I have seen before) and thousands of people came to know Jesus. Numerous students waited in line through entire band sets because they were so burdened to talk and pray. As we prayed, the tears fell and it was clear the Spirit was moving.
This weekend, the youth pastor prayer times were especially powerful as it seemed God was really moving in the hearts of those in attendance. I have felt burdened to offer a time of prayer for purity and forgiveness among these leaders and it seems God is really ministering. Keep praying for the 80 - 250 youth and campus workers gathering each night.
A personal highlight for me this weekend was our time in OKC. When I was just a sophomore in college I heard Billy Graham was doing a crusade there and road tripped through the night to be there in 2003. At that crusade (in the Ford Center), I rededicated my life to preaching the Gospel and asked God that one day I could share the Gospel in large arenas like Dr Graham. To stand in the same room, packed out, just 8 years later and see thousands response to Jesus was unbelievable. God answers prayers!
Messages from Facebook & Twitter:
Jeremy – I visited with a college student who went with us to Winter Jam till 1am. He said he is giving it all to Him! @nickhall 's message spoke to him.
Rhonda - Before I went to the concert, I felt like I was worthless and wasted space, like I didn't belong. While I was there at intermission Nick Hall prayed with me and made me realize I am worth everything, that I have a purpose in this life.
Hannah - Hey Nick, could you pray for me tomorrow because I think I am going to be telling the whole church about what happened at winter jam? I have never been able to talk to lots of people at one time so I am kind of scared.
