“As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them he pass by. Crowds gathered also from towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits, and all of them were healed.”
Peter was so filled with the Holy Spirit that wherever he walked, he claimed new spiritual territory. If Peter’s shadow fell onto anyone, it brought healing!
Although my shadow didn’t do a whole lot of healing, I felt that the Holy Spirit was claiming new areas of campus as I went into Theta Chi.
I met with two students over dinner to cast more vision about Greek InterVarsity through Luke 15 – The Parable of the Lost Sheep. Through this we see the shepherd leaving 99 of his sheep in the open country to find the 1 lost sheep. Once he finds this sheep, there is joy that everyone hears about and everyone is invited to come celebrate. Through this, we see that Greek InterVarsity is all about leaving the places where we may feel the most comfortable to be incarnational and bold with others in hopes that we can rejoice when Greek students discover the love of Christ.
After we finished dinner, I walked back with a Theta Chi named Ryan Fritz. Ryan is a Theta Chi that the Lord introduced me to on a prayer walk. I asked Ryan if we could hang out at Theta Chi before we ended the night. What happened next was awesome.
Ryan began to introduce to me to several of his Fraternity Brothers. After he introduced me, he would proceed to tell his Brothers all about Greek InterVarsity and that we were going to start holding a weekly bible study at their house in the Fall. He would then gauge his brother’s interest levels by extending an invite to join us when we start. Praise God! Not only is Ryan excited to have a bible study at the house, we noticed that some of the Brothers seemed very open to the idea of participating in spiritual conversations.
As we continued to walk around the house, I felt this sense of a spiritual authority that was to come. I saw the chapter room and I immediately had this vision of seeing Greek students having a bible study in this room! (only cleaned a little bit).
Pray that the Holy Spirit will move through Theta Chi and pray for Ryan, who is excited to learn more about having spiritual conversation with his Brothers and to have a study in his house!
Not only that, but once I returned home, I got a text message from the other student I took out to dinner, Kim Dabrowski. Kim is an ADPi and expressed that has been very excited to learn how to have spiritual conversation with her sorority sisters. Kim sent me a text that read,
“Hey! On my way back to adpi I ran into one of my sisters and we got to talking about faith! God is working already, crazy stuff :)”
Please continue to pray for students like Ryan and Kim who are excited to see the Joe and Jane Greeks be reached. Pray that the presence of the Holy Spirit will be with them as they continue to be bold and reach out to their Fraternity Brothers and Sisters!
