testimonies from Fanshawe College {Totolie}

Last week Jamie went to Fanshawe College to help start up a Power to Change student ministry with a few other staff members. They saw so many encouraging things and met so many students who were interested in joining together to help change their campus and the world that it was very clear God had gone before them and prepared the soil.
Three students actually came to know Christ personally during the four days they were on campus and the following blog posts will be their stories.

Totolie {written by staff member, Mandy Blackburn}

Totolie is an international student from China studying Human Resources at Fanshawe College. Interested by our booth, she stopped by and filled out a survey. When she read the question that asked about her interest in discovering Jesus, she looked up and said, "I know nothing about Jesus and the Bible". I quickly offered to teach her about both if she was interested, and she jumped at the opportunity. The next day we met on campus and I walked through the gospel with her, teaching her all about Jesus. She had never heard any of it before. When I told her that God loved her, she laughed. She said it was so strange to hear that. When I told her this was history and not a made up story, she was confused. As the conversation went on, she was increasingly curious, and asked some great questions. When I asked if she wanted to start a relationship with God, she said she wasn't ready yet. I asked if we could meet again the next day again, and she agreed.

The launch team and I prayed that God would help Totolie understand and believe that God loves her, and that she would begin to understand the gospel more. The next day Totolie, myself, and Becca, a Christian student at Fanshawe, walked through the Gospel again. This time, she knew she wanted to invite Jesus into her life. When I told her that it was as simple as praying, she responded by saying, "I've never prayed before." After showing her and explaining what prayer was, Totolie prayed for the first time and, in that prayer, gave her life to God!
