Reaching International Students

IMG_0977Tuesday night, during the large group meeting of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF) at Purdue University Calumet (PUC), Hammond, Indiana, I was overjoyed to see my son Yanan (16) share the gospel from the “show me your glory” passage in Exodus (chapters 33 and 34) to a student from mainland China.  A MAJOR MILESTONE!  MAJOR ANSWER TO A FATHER’S MAJOR PRAYER!  Rejoicing in Christ’s grace and faithfulness!

IMG_1140Please pray that the Lord will continue to use IVCF’s Large Group Meetings and “All Nations” Bible Studies at PUC to evangelize and disciple students from China, Africa, Latin America, and other “mission fields.”

Psalm 127
1 Unless the Lord builds the house,
 those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
2 It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for he gives to his beloved sleep.
3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Praise the Lord!

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.

    “But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” (1 Peter 3:15)
