An Answer to Prayer

Last fall, Robert Lopez wanted to start a Christian club on campus. God put on his heart a desire to reach people at California State University Dominguez Hills who didn’t know about Jesus.

“I prayed to the Lord two things,” said Robert. “Firstly, I prayed that the Lord use me as His instrument and that everywhere I go and every breath I take would be for His glory. Secondly, I prayed that the Lord lead me to the right people who will support me.”

At the same time, the Los Angeles North Destino team was also praying. In a season of discouragement, they sought intercessory prayer. God led them to try and launch new Destino movements on campuses where Destino had no ministries. Then at CSU Dominguez Hills, Destino staff member Kai Pottenger was introduced to Robert.

This was an answer to both their prayers.

The two began meeting together. That week they went out on campus and had the privilege of seeing another student begin a relationship with Christ. With Kai’s help, Robert launched Destino at Dominguez Hills and the group became an official club in January of 2018 (some of the students are pictured above).

“The Lord has been bringing the students to the club,” explained Robert. “There’s a story of an atheist girl we met while sharing the gospel who believed that she came from stardust. We shared the gospel to her and she was the first person to attend our official meeting and has been going ever since. She has also invited her friends to our Bible studies.”

This past summer, Robert was taking classes at Cerritos College. “I have been speaking to students about God in that campus,” said Robert, “and God has been leading me to maybe start something over there since I live nearby.”

In Destino our desire is that every student would have the opportunity to know about Jesus! We are so excited to help students like Robert launch Destino groups on their campuses. Would you take a minute to pray for the students at Dominguez Hills as well as Cerritos College, that many would come to know Jesus and get connected to the Destino familia?
