When Vanessa first started working with Campus for Christ at Guelph she met Emily, a first year student with spunk and immediately took to her. Vanessa was able to personally disciple Emily for 2 years before moving off campus to take on the role of full-time wife and mother. Three and a half years later, Emily is graduating. When asked about her involvement with Campus for Christ she was full of stories of how God has used C4C in her life. Here is just a bit of what she had to say:
“When I came to university I had no idea the journey God wanted to take me on during the 4 years to follow.
The most life-changing lesson I learned through Campus for Christ was that the Christian life wasn’t meant to be lived on my own strength, but through the power of the Holy Spirit working through me.
Without Campus for Christ and the staff and students who poured their lives into me during my past four years at university I would still be the way I was before- trying to live the Christian life on my own and experiencing frustration and failure instead of the peace and joy God intends for us.”
Emily has gone on several missions trips with C4C and is pursuing full-time ministry after she graduates this coming April. Pray for Emily as she transitions into post-education life and ministry.
