Cape Town (UCT). Set on the mountain side, I began my campus outreach with a journey to “Moscow on the Hill.”
This day Bianca, a second year South African in-tern, joins me in sharing the gospel to UCT stu-dents. Bianca completed her degree at the Univer-sity of Western Cape (UWC), and was part of the first Campus Crusade for Christ – South Africa (CCC-SA) student leader-ship team Melanie and I helped develop during our missions trip to SA in 2009. Now she is a team member reaching future SA leadership with the gospel. Bianca and I speak to a number of UCT students with a collection of beliefs: Hindus, Muslims, atheists and Christians.
We learn about a young man who grew up in a Hindu family, but now believes there is no need for religion and has become atheist. We were more dismayed about his Christian friend. I asked if he shared about his Christian beliefs to his atheist friend. In a terse response, he expressed he did not like talking about religion, and his Christian beliefs were private.
Climbing down the mountain we reflected upon the Christian’s sentiment of not sharing his faith with friends. I wondered how damaging this action could be at this secular university.
Continue to pray for us as we share with unbelievers and encourage believers not to put their light under a basket.
