Well Its been awhile since my last post but Its been a great week and a half since then. Last week at UNSW was a good one for the guys. We met a good amount of guys and so that was encouraging. Tuesday was my first chance to see the University of Sydney because we all went there for the Gospel night(which was the last meeting of the semester for the SOW ministry). Well we went there but I didnt get to walk all around and see all of the campus because I had a meeting with Matt. Anywho Wednesday we went to UTS and passed out flyers for their Gospel night that was actually this week because they have a different schedule. It was funny as many students would just walk by and then when I mentioned free food they turned around and were suddenly interested lol. Well we had just a regular meeting but after the talk we broke off into small discussion groups and I had Pastor Jim and then a guy named Hiep who is an atheist. We got into a good discussion with him and I think he is really close to becoming a Christian. God just seems to be doing so much in his life that he has to be close. Well the other Brandon had lunch with him today and had a good talk with him today about spiritual things for a couple hours today which was great. So please be praying for him! Today was our last day on campus and it was a great one. We decided to come to campus and give students free coffee and tea as they are studying hard for their exams coming up. At first they seemed skeptical and asking what group we were promoting or why we were doing it. We told them we were here to serve the students and so since we didnt have much to do and they were studying hard we would give them a break and by the time we ran out of cups more and more people heard about us so we are going to do it again! I think it was a great success and will be a great way to reach the students. Tonight the guys went to University of Sydney to meet with a guy named Andrew who lives in St Andrews college(which are like our dorms). He is a strong christian and we went out to eat with him and got to know how it is like in them and ministry things like that. Well the time has finally arrived! Tomorrow night at midnight the World Cup officially kicks off!!! Even though we will be in the mountains for the first couple games we will be back sat night for the Korea Greece game. Which we will get to watch it with all the SOW students that are all Korean lol. The Harbour has set up screens out in the water and there is a whole fanfest park setup www.fanfest.com.au It is gonna be really amazing to view the games there and be around all sorts of people! Well USA England game is at 430am on sunday morning and yes We are waking up to watch it :)! well we are heading to the zoo and the mountains tomorrow so more to update when I return!
