As we wrap things up for the Spring Semester we praise God for the many blessings He has showered on us (April showers of blessings!).
Our weekly Sunday worship services concluded with a special night led by the students. Music selections, testimonies and a lot of laughter defined our final service. We also had the opportunity to join with our brothers and sisters at ACT BG for Dave and Vicki Warner’s final worship service at Prout Chapel. About twenty University of Toledo students and leaders made their way to Bowling Green State University for what proved to be a powerful and moving night.
One of the great joys of the month was the “Chivalry Dinner” where our guys prepared, hosted and served a sit down banquet dinner for our ACT ladies. A fun time was had by all!
ACT UT also led in worship at That Neighborhood Church as we have done monthly. We plan to continue through the summer.
The weekly UT “Prayer Walk” around the University of Toledo Campus continues. Students pray specifically for the campus, the students, the professors and leaders. Every Friday morning the group leaves the student union and truly turns their hearts to God.
Students from ACT UT traveled to Bowling Green to join in on the bi-annual Food Giveaway. The following two days we spent giving away doughnuts as a part of our ACT UT Exam Doughnut Giveaway. Both were opportunities to begin conversations and serve others. We may never know what seeds were planted at these events!
The final ACT UT big event of the month was our Koinonia Dinner. On this night we invited ACT Alumni to join in as we shared how God had blessed us through ACT this past school year. Included in the evening was the revealing of the total dollars raised through a special fund raiser to help KyWann Whiting’s family after KyWann’s accident at the SkyZone Trampoline Park in January. The Student Leadership Team expected to raise around $300 but our actual total was over $650. God has blessed so much!
This summer will feature a combined ACT UT and BG event called “In the Woods with Jesus.” Each Friday we will enjoy a student-led devotional around a campfire along with fellowship, games and fun. We are looking forward to this as a way to build community heading into the Fall semester.
God has blessed the ACT UT group in so many ways. We thank you so much for your support as we have the blessing of working in the campus community.
