I came into college from a Christian high school with a lot of head knowledge, but no heart knowledge. I used my good morals as a way to justify my sin and I used that sin to seek the approval of the world. At the beginning of my second semester Freshman year, God showed me through different people/books/Bible Study videos that my good deeds were not enough to cover the sin that was in my life, and that I was in desperate need of a savior. I received a joy that I could not find in the things I was seeking before, and I surrendered my life to Jesus. I am super excited to share the same truth that brought me so much joy to other students and to be a part of this special mission Campus Outreach has.
