The Miracle Started With Free Food!
November 4, 2014
A UBC student was invited to a free campus BBQ. The student had no idea just how much God would satisfy their spiritual hunger.
“When I first came to UBC, I went to the free BBQ. I went because of the free food as I was in Land and Food Systems faculty and free food is always a bonus! I wasn’t a Christian nor did I know anything about God, but someone offered to pray for me and that impressed me. After that I came to every Thursday campus worship night I had no idea why I was drawn, but even after long stressful days, I still wanted to come and worship with this awesome community you are leading.
The following year I went to the Winter Retreat (Emerge) and became a Christian. At that time I was healed of my chest pains that I had had for years. It was a miracle and my journey of faith all started with free food at the BBQ and somebody taking the initiative to pray with me. He used YOU to make this community a safe and enjoyable place where I could experience the glorified Lord in ways that are unimaginable to most others." This student was baptized last year!
