student's testimony- bst
This story really helps me to go witnessing
When I initially checked the box that said I commit to BST, I didn’t think much of it besides the fact that having the experience couldn’t hurt. As I look back on my first semester of college, the few things that i take to memory are: my smi’s with the best soonjang (DAVID SON), fellowship after geth, and all-nighters. I think having someone you can rely on and turn to was a really cool aspect, which pushed me to take BST. I quickly had doubts of taking BST because I felt I wasn’t mature enough mentally nor spiritually. So I talked to my sj about the doubts I had about not being ready the week before, he had nothing but words of encouragement and support regardless of if I took BST or not. In the end, I think the decision came down to strengthening my relationship with God and seeing how He will continue to use me. Even with the slightest doubt, I encourage the new BSTers to take the leap of faith in God’s plan for us. I remember this one wednesday going witnessing with justin, our smtc on campus, and Isaac from praise team came along. At that point, I was relatively okay with the idea of witnessing because I went a couple of times with Justin and naturally i learned to calm my nerves. So, normally I go witnessing with Justin so I wanted to see if I could take anything from Isaac’s approach and apply it to myself. His casual conversation-making and mutual respect for the person was something I felt I could improve on. The next guy we went up to I just remember feeling so much pressure for no reason as I skimmed through the first couple of pages. I looked to my sides and saw Justin and Isaac giggling but giving me the “okay” to continue and do my own thing. This story really helps me to go witnessing because I know in the end that I’m not being graded on my witnessing rather it is just me trying to have a conversation centered around God with someone who may have not heard about Him.
