VBH winter training OBJAVUJ 2016 "Read the Bible with seekers."

Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.“ (John 20,21)

Jesus did not send a bunch of trained missionaries to do mission at campus. The missionaries he sent are inexperienced students who are often afraid and young in their faith, but they put their trust in Christ. They are the ones Jesus decided to send out, in the same way he sent scared disciples more than 2000 years ago. They are His ambassadors and they bring His word – the living Christ to university.

VBH staff organizes a winter training for VBH students each year. It gives them an opportunity to share and to grow in how they can be the light and the salt at various universities across Slovakia.

The winter training took place from the 5th to the 7th of February in Veľký Slavkov this year. It was focused on how to read the Bible with seekers. Our students translated an evangelistic booklet on John´s gospel from English (Uncover John) and we named it OBJAVUJ in Slovak. Before the end of the winter term we printed 1500 copies and the training gave us an opportunity to learn how to use OBJAVUJ on campus. Our desire was for our students to see the beauty of Christ again and to renew their trust in the power of the gospel. Milka, a student from Prešov said:

"Winter training was for me a great experience with God and also with OBJAVUJ. I was able to sense God´s presence again and His care for me. Thanks to all the wonderful people there and thanks to the study of OBJAVUJ I was able to come to know Him closer. I am looking forward to reading OBJAVUJ".

We are so thankful that God was at work in Milka´s life and in the lives of the rest of our students as well. It is so encouraging to hear that students are excited to read OBJAVUJ with their friends, one of our students has even started to read it with her parents who do not trust Christ for salvation yet.

Please pray that God uses OBJAVUJ in Slovakia for His glory and that many seekers can come to know Christ.
