May my prayer be set before you like incense;may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.(Psalms141:2)

I was at Bridges International (BI) Annual Banquet tonight. BI is a branch of Campus Crusade For Christ, who focus on evangelizing and serving the international students here in America. The host announced that among the 32 victims, 20-year –old Lauren McCain, she attended the BI conference in 2006 to accept training on how to evangelize international students in her campus. Tragically, she was killed.

O God the Father, may the life of Lauren McCain be presented to You like the pleasing sacrifice. May You accept her blood as the Seed in that land to bear many fruits.
O God the Father, please comfort her family and friends and pour out your love in their hearts. Jesus Christ, would You Lay Your Holy Hand on them, rest them in Your Arms.
O Holy Spirit, would You encourage Your people through this, raise up Your army in that campus. Amen

On Monday morning, right before 12
o’clock, I was praying for my school at UCI. I decided to take a road that circles around the whole school since I can’t find a place to pray. Starting from the School of Engineering department, I started waling and praying then I noticed a lady walking in front of me who was wearing a green Hawaiian shirt. She was not a student but an adult; suddenly I heard my own voice inside me telling me that I should stop her and tell her something about God. I thought to myself, what a ridiculous idea, what if she yells back at me make me in front of all the students? I ignored the idea and continued to pray for my school.

Two minutes passed and she was still walking in front of me, but I got this feeling again telling me that I should go up to her. I struggled with myself, what should I say to her? Should I say, “Hey, do you know this person called Jesus?” Or should I say, “Hey, have you heard of the 4 spiritual laws?” I kept on thinking for a good opening phrases but I couldn’t think of a good one. Then, I realized she’s probably going to walk away if I don’t do something soon since I’ve been following her for a while. But I didn’t do anything. Then I remembered Ps Liu Tong’s message from Saturday afternoon, be an adventurous person for God. But I was still feeling terrified so I kept on following her. Finally, I thought, God if this is really from you then let her name be Amanda when I ask her; if her name is not Amanda, then I’ll tell her I saw the wrong person. But I was still feeling terrified and I still didn’t go up to her.

At last, I jerked myself to walk faster even though I had no intention of telling anything. “Hi, excuse me, um….hi what is your name?” My heart was pounding. Taking off her iPod earphones she said, “Jamie.” I thought, “oh shoot” but I was so scared at that time that my hand was shaking. I said, “Oh,... ya um….I just want to tell you something…. God really loves you” OMG I can’t believed I said that! Then she replied, “Oh, thank you! I know that, and God bless you too” I was so scared I just want to go away, “oh alright then, ya um…I’ll see you later then… Bye!” I walked away as quickly as I can. Feeling a great pressure released off my back, I thanked GOD for I actually stopped someone AND she didn’t yell back at me!!

So I gave thanks to the Lord and continued to pray for my school. 10 minutes later when I was about to finish circling the whole campus, someone tapped me on the shoulder. I turned around, and I saw her again. My heart started pumping again, and she asked me, “Why did you say that to me?” I answered her, “umm, what did you say? What is my major?” “No, why did you say that to me back there?” I was really scared, “umm…I dunno….I just had this weird feeling that I needed to tell you that.” She said, “you know when you came up to me, I was actually praying for my daughter, she goes to Virginia Tech, there was a shooting there this morning? And 31 people got killed” I was like, “woaaaaaaah” then She said, “but when you came up to me, you came at a great timing…” she said a bunch of things that I don’t remember b/c my heart was shaking the whole time but the last thing she said was, “You’ve made my day” then she went off. Later in the day, she told me her niece was safe and ask for prayer for student’s families.

GIVE God all the glory. I hope this will bring some comforts to you guys.
