Word Alive International Student Track 2017
Approx. 80 international students and 30 team all meeting in a marquee. This was Word Alive 2017. Over 4 intense days we engaged with excellent talks from Peter Teagle on John 13-15 and our theme of Living for Jesus in an uncertain world. The Q&A showed how engaged the students were. Small groups allowed further discussion and questioning on how to apply the teaching, while seminars stretched us all to consider what the Bible has to say on Work, Relationships and Ghosts gods, spirits and ancestors. Of course it wasn’t all work. There was the fun of the sandcastle competition, the Find the Leader treasure hunt and two stunning meals eaten together. While the evening celebrations gave the experience of worshipping with thousands of others.
What were the highlights and what makes several of us return year-after-year to sleep in basic chalets and work long days? It has to be the joy of working in such diverse and committed teams and most of all seeing the way relevant teaching challenges international students to consider what it means to live for Christ in the UK and back home. Word Alive International track is such a brilliant tool for discipleship.
