I want one of the students, I want Tiffany Watkins, who just came back from a missions trip last night, I want you to share a word of testimony, Tiffany, about what ORU means to you.
TW: ORU means the world to me. Every day I thank God for being at Oral Roberts University. And one of the reasons why it means so much is because I know what it is to be in a secular environment, in a secular school. Before coming to ORU, I was at another school, another college, and it’s a little difficult when you are one light in such a dark place. It can be difficult. And the Lord spoke to me through people and just spoke to my spirit and let me know that ORU was where I was supposed to be. So I came to a College Weekend, and as soon as I stepped on the campus, I felt the presence of God. And I knew this was where I was supposed to be. Didn’t even want to go back to finish my term. Had to force myself to go back to finish my term. But I did come to ORU, and I tell you, there is no experience that compares to what I gave up to come here. I tell you, I was traveling at the other university and doing different things, and I wasn’t quite sure what my calling was. I knew that I could sing, I knew that God had called me to sing, but when I came here, God began to define who Tiffany was and is, and He’s still doing it. I mean, through the chapels, and getting involved with the music ministries program and being able to lead teams and just be so involved, God is defining my call. And I tell you, I thought that you had to be a certain age to allow God to move through you in a certain way. But I’m letting, the signs and wonders are moving through these hands now. You know, miracles are moving through these hands now. And I praise God for that. And it took an obedient step to hearing the call of God, and I’ve learned here, I’m learning to hear His voice, more and more clear. And I just thank God for ORU. I love it so much. Thank you.
RR: George Pearson, could you come up? Many of you know George. He and his wife, Terri, pastor Eagle Mountain Church in Ft. Worth. What you may not know, they’re alumni of Oral Roberts University. Give him a good welcome. God bless you, George.
Richard Roberts – And that leads us to this question. How has Christ welcomed us? He welcomes us just the way we are. I like that.© Copyright 2011admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Saving Souls
