This past week brought about one of the most enjoyable experiences of my year on Relay. All us Relay guys headed up to north Wales to llandrillo College for an exciting mission. It was very different to university missions – but in a good way.
One thing I noticed was the openness of college students. If anyone spent more than five minutes around the big tent, playing frisbee or just relaxing in the sun they heard something of the gospel. While with uni students there tends to be an apathy towards thinking about spiritual things, these college students were all desperate to escape the teenage knots that they see as holding them back. They will talk openly about how much their life sucks and will listen to the response of the gospel.
One of the big things about college work (and all gospel work for that matter) is the long term contacts. There is an exciting opportunity for all the guys who are based up north to continue the work of the mission. Please pray for them.
