Sam's Story

Here is one story from a 3rd year student, Sam Foster of her experience at Summit this year:

I was really looking forward to Summit this year, because last year’s Summit changed my life. God used that time last year to speak me about my faith barrier of sharing to students on campus. I have seen more incredible things that God has done in this past year than in my whole life as a Christian. The most exciting part is that God used me to answer my own prayers of wanting to see students come into a relationship with Christ.

This Summit God had a big challenge for me. I didn’t think much about this faith barrier that I had, but God totally set it before me this past weekend. God has called me to not only make disciples on campus but He has called me to share my faith with my family. My relatives are not believers. My aunts, uncles and cousins do not know Jesus. God has put this burden on my heart for them. When I think about sharing with them, I worry what they will think of me. Will they think of me as the crazy niece/cousin? Will they not want to hear any of it? But Jesus says in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” So when I think about sharing to them in that perspective I get totally excited to go home and share Jesus with them. Wow. God is Good!
