Mt. Freedom Baptist Church, and Asbury University, Wilmore, KY
This week we were lucky enough to attend chapel at Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky. The worship was beautiful and Kim Meeder, the founder of Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Oregon, presented a moving message. After service we were shown around the university and scored a guided tour of their amazing media department. Forget Warner Bro’s Movie World; these guys have souvenirs from just about every movie that matters, owing to their talented students who have played a key role in the industry since the program was first established.
Subtlety is not my strong point so I’m just going to say it outright: if you are an Asbury University student and you’re reading this blog, consider whether God is calling you to use your skills on the mission field; if so please contact us. If not, contact us anyway and we’ll try to convince you otherwise!
The highlight for the Maasai came when we were shown an old building in the middle of the campus. This tiny two-story house that now serves as a prayer space was the original site of the university. Over the years the thriving campus that is Asbury has sprung up around the original site and presents an amazing testimony to how God can grow even the smallest seed of faith into something great. Realising that this great campus began with a building even smaller than the fledgling En-kata school, the Maasai have much to look forward to.
