Students Help Bring Life to Family

We Will Proclaim

By Anonymous

A team of 12 Crown College students accompanied Geoff*, an Alliance worker in Southeast Asia, to a remote farm for a “surprise visit” to an old farmer who needed help fertilizing his rice field. The farmer had low expectations of a good crop, since the field was on “cursed land.” As the team spread the manure, they prayed for an exceedingly abundant outcome. Later that year, the farmer reaped a harvest that far exceeded anything the land had ever yielded.

A few months later, Geoff and some local church leaders returned to the old farmer and introduced him to the “Lord of the Harvest.” The farmer, his family, and a neighbor received Jesus that evening.

We Will Proclaim

We celebrate that our God is a speaking God who has revealed Himself to us. The Bible is our inspired text which He will never contradict. We are commissioned to proclaim His message in word and deed. We will “not be ashamed of the gospel” but serve as “Christ’s ambassadors.”

And so we ask ourselves, “Are we students of the Scripture? Do our sermons and life messages arise from the Word? Do we have a listening ear for His voice? Are our words and lives proclaiming His truth? Do we both ‘show’ and ‘tell’ the truth?”
