Pastor Birai dove into the Word, teaching about lessons to be learned from David’s life during Campion’s quarterly week of prayer, February 18 to 22. Students were blessed with a direct and hard-hitting message which encouraged us to look toward God-fearing leaders for help in our lives. Faith Paden stated, “Pastor Daniel spoke to us in an honest and real way that we needed to hear.” A new message was presented each night, and students received a blessing each time.
After the message, Pastor Daniel and Pastor Esequias, along with a few students, stayed by to offer prayer to anyone with requests. Hearts were poured out and tears were wept, but most importantly, prayers were answered. “The speaker didn’t hold back and the message was spoken through the Word of God in love,” states Chaplain, Esequias Perea.
Each night was opened by different groups of Campion students leading in music and prayer. Students worshiped with the theme song for the week, “Pursue” by Hillsong Worship. The week closed with “Vespers Deluxe” which was full of enthusiastic voices and hearts open to God’s spirit. When asked about what it was like to lead praise, Cristian Marin said, “Leading out a worship team is truly amazing. There is no greater feeling than hearing every single student glorifying and praising God!”
After the final message, students were invited to an afterglow held in the Student Center where they could fellowship over donuts and hot chocolate. They also had the option to continue worshiping in song inside the Hankin’s Hall Tower.
Pastor Daniel was a blessing to our campus and this week of spiritual growth won’t be quickly forgotten.
