The Fall 2011 semester at American Indian College has begun!
The first full week of classes is devoted to welcoming the new students. Current student body leadership facilitate chapel services during this time. Yesterday, I was brought to tears. Eleven members of the community (students and faculty) prayed in their own native languages for the Lord's favor upon the college--ten languages in all, besides English!
I couldn't help but think of the Scriptures...
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. (Revelation 7:9, NIV)
That is why we are missionaries--and so are you--we keep telling the story of Jesus until everyone has heard!
