Some problems are good

Barton "We’ve got a problem." Said my daughter-in-law, Nicole, as we sat down at the dinner table.

"Yeah? What is it?" I asked.

"Well, you know how we gave out free water and helped students move in at Barton?" She said.

"Yeah?" I wondered while gesturing her to continue.

"And you know how we had a special event on campus to attract new students and how we included information about our Bible studies for them at registration?" She continued.

"Okay. I know about all that. But I thought we felt all our work was a success." I answered.

"It was a success. But now we don’t know what to do. We had over 60 girls and 15 guys sign up to be in small groups this semester. And we don’t know how we’re going to find leaders and groups for all of them!" Nicole finally blurted out with a big-eyed look on her face.

"Oh, that is a problem." I said. "But, it’s a great problem isn’t it?"

I’m glad that WCC is helping Campus Crusade for Christ do ministry at the Barton College campus. We’re in our second year of helping them. We have three of our own working diligently to offer small groups and a weekly Wednesday night meeting for the students at Barton. Caroline Combs works at Barton and she is the faculty sponsor for CCC. Jonathan and Nicole Combs are working with the students to form a student-led leadership team and reach their campus for Christ. We see many of these wonderful students at our WCC services every Sunday.

Would you join me in praying for CCC at Barton. They have some good problems.
