We have all heard that 21 days can form or break a habit. Twenty one days is three weeks. The Daniel Fast takes place over 21 days. The band Blink-182 has a song titled “21 Days”. Even Director Basil Dean directed a movie of 21 days in 1940. All of these are examples of what has happened in 21 one days, but I am about to tell you what is coming in 21 days: Campus Harvest 2012.
Every year, Every Nation Ministries promotes an event in three cities that welcomes high school and college students to meet and worship God to take back their campus. Driving from each hometown to each designated city allows students to connect with mates that they may or may not already know from campus. When you arrive, you immediately feel excited for what the weekend holds for you. On the first night there is worship and a message that uplifts you to a place you wish you could never leave. Your energy awakens your tired spirit that the world has exhausted. The next day has more worship and small group meetings with different topics of interest to choose from. By the end of the evening, there’s more worship and great lessons to show how truly divine this weekend was for you to reconnect with God in a way unlike ever before.
The first year I had went to Campus Harvest, I did not know what to expect. I ended up making a decision to stop treating God like a genie. My savior has called me to have a relationship with him and I was not being fair to him. I took my experience from the weekend and continued to grow in my spiritual life that made my every day life more fulfilling. My second time going to Campus Harvest was last year where I was a room leader for four girls. To share how much this event had meant to me since my first time coming to those girls and the others had encouraged me to continue growing in my faith. I had received many blessings reminding me I am getting closer to carrying out the plans God has for me. With my third year coming up on March 23 through March 25, I am anticipating the event to bring out the best of what is yet to come.
This years theme is Arise. It’s a powerful statement for everyone to Arise to the life we are called to live. How would you like to partner with me and raise money to attend? I am asking for your support of any amount that can get me closer to my goal of $1,000 in 21 days. Each penny of support is going to be distributed among five people in need of funding to go including myself. It is about $200 for each ticket, deposit, and fees for the transportation and living expenses for the weekend.
When I share my testimony with people, Campus Harvest is the milestone that has set my life on the path it is on today. Many students cannot afford to pay for school and afford to go to an event like this. How wonderful would it be if I can share my testimony with someone and have them as excited as I am for Campus Harvest and say, “Come on, pack your bags… we’re going” knowing their ticket is already taken care of by your help.

Thank you for reading this and may we all arise to the life we are called to live! I thank and bless you my friend.
