va tech - new life in the midst of tragedy

i got this update from lindsay koch - one of hpc's missionaries to university campuses:

I hope you are well. I don't know about yall but my heart has been hurting the last two days for the students, community and people of VA Tech...but I do know that God is receiving glory from this tragedy all over the world. A girl on my team got this email yesterday from a girl here in NYC...

Mollie accepted Christ today!!!

After everything that happened at Virginia Tech today, it has just been really hard today for me and her. (about half my high school goes to va tech). It’s devastating and I’ve been praying all day for their families. But she came into my room tonight "and said: "I have something to tell you...I went to the church on campus today and prayed to Christ and accepted him into my life because I was so overwhelmed by everything today."

I cannot wait to tell you more about it. We talked a long time and are going to start reading the gospels. I thought we may start with John because I was reading that but would you suggest something else? We can talk more about it Wednesday but I wanted to tell you because you've been there from the beginning.

what the devil meant for distruction and evil, God is using to awaken people to their need of His love.

yay God. prayer works.
