I want to introduce you to Nina Lim. Nina is currently enrolled at Trinity Western University in post-graduate studies in Marriage and Family Therapy. She has a rich, recent and relevant experience with Public Campus Ministries.

Nina transferred to her new home here in British Columbia and wants to continue the vision to reach public campuses with the message of hope and wholeness as found in Jesus. Come by the Campus Ministries booth and meet her. Spend some time chatting personally with her. You will be blessed.

Maybe God is nudging you to engage with students at a public campus near you. Maybe, you are just the one who will be led to be a missionary of love and wonder.

Here is part of Nina's story.

I distinctly remember being in my senior year of high school, and completely set on attending Andrews University in the fall. This was where I wanted to go. I was sure of it. Yet, deep down, I didn't have peace about that decision. The more I prayed, the more strongly I felt convicted that God was calling me to the University of Toronto (U of T).

After much wrestling, I surrendered my will to God and obeyed. I had no idea why God was sending me to U of T, but I figured that an upside to attending Canada's top university is that I would get a great education.

Now that I have graduated from U of T, I can say, without a doubt, that my degree is completely secondary to the heavenly education God gave me during my undergrad.

It was during my time at U of T that I had the opportunity to help start a campus ministries chapter at my school.

We were an official Seventh-day Adventist club of the school and held weekly meetings and Bible studies. We fellowshipped and encouraged one another.

We prayed together and cried together. We had authentic community and others could see it; the majority of our meetings had more non-Adventists than Adventists. They saw something different and wanted to be a part of it.

Through campus ministries, I developed a real sense of mission and outreach. I began realizing that so many students are searching for the truth and are at a critical time in their life where they are finding out who they are and questioning what they believe in. It became clear to me that my campus is more than an institution of learning; it is a mission field and I, a missionary.

Now, I understand that by sending me to U of T, God was actually enrolling me into His school of evangelism. Through campus ministries, my faith and leadership skills were strengthened; I learned to give Bible studies and depend on God more than ever before.

Campus ministries has truly changed my life and I will be forever grateful for that "still small voice" that brought me to U of T.
