Chico State "welcomes" Project Truth

chico1

With a national reputation as the biggest party school, we knew this is where the message must be taken. Our team prepared for the warfare at Chico State and were not surprised by the reaction.

Thousands of students passed by our display and many engaged our team with great questions. The display was powerful and we watched as our presence was changing minds and hearts. We handed out thousands of Gospel tracts and materials to interested students. There was a bigger positive response than we thought there would be on this unholy ground .

The angry proabortion students did not like to see how many students were listening to us.

So a coalition of homosexual students began to stir up other students and the counter demonstration began.

This photo speaks volumes. Many students found it interesting that the rhetoric the "prochoice" students were proposing was so clearly defined on our display. How does one reconcile the two messages in this photo.

We were exposing the fallacy of the notion that killing a baby is her "choice." It was great that this student stood there because it made our message more clear.

They gather together against the life of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood. Psalm 94:21

"They served their idols, which became a snare to them...they even sacrificed their sons and daughters to demons, and shed innocent blood...and the land was polluted with blood. Thus they were defiled by their own works." Psalm 106:36-39

Many of the protesters listened in on our conversations and got what we call the "ricochet" witnessing technique.

"For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful have opened against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause. In return for my love they are my accusers, but I give myself to prayer. Thus they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love."

Psalm 109:1-5

The proabort students were taken back by our willingness to dialogue with them. John is walking through the reasoned arguments in our material with these two lost souls and the one on the left claimed to be a "Christian." She stayed protesting us for the entire two days.

Students still came up to us throughout the protest and some were so broken by our message that we had many opportunities to pray with them and proclaim the freedom that can only be found in Jesus Christ. Several Christian students thanked us for being on their campus and told us we were brave for being there. We encouraged them to be bold and be witnesses to their friends.

Frank and Diana were confronted by this Christian student, angry that we were making students mad at Christians. After she listened to our reasons for being so bold, this student had a change of heart and our team prayed that her walk with the Lord would be stronger on the campus. Frank said it was the highlight of his day.

We had two great days on the Chico State campus and want you to pray for the Christian students who are trying to impact that campus. We were encouraged by their desire to change the hearts of the ungodly people all around them each day.


In His Steps,
