The guys in this photo are a little older than most of our group shots. That's because of the best kept secret in Campus Outreach Lynchburg: college students get older!
The blonde guy in the middle is Evan Harris, CO director at Lynchburg College. And surrounding him are the 6 groomsmen from his wedding last weekend. 5 of those groomsmen were involved with CO while in college. Of the 5 groomsmen involved with CO, one's an engineer in Pittsburgh, one's an army officer in Georgia, one works for a contractor in Charlotte and two of us are on staff with Campus Outreach in Virginia.
Of those same 5, three of us are married...8 kids currently and more to come!
So how'd all this happen? God saved many of us in college, gave us a mission worth giving our lives to, and now positions us on the campus and beyond it to make Jesus known.
Here's a special way that you can pray for Virginia Tech over the next few years: Pray that our ministry would launch countless godly people into the world. And while you do, please join me in praying that God raises up 10 long term overseas missionaries and 5 CO staff during the 5 year period that ends in the Spring of 2016. I started praying for this in August of 2011 and since then we've seen 3 CO staff and 1 overseas missionary raised up!
