Dr. Don Davis (Director of TUMI) and I traveled to Moody Bible Institute for Moody’s Urban Emphasis Week last week. World Impact has a great relationship with Moody as our President Keith Philips has spoken there many times and we have had staff and interns from Moody join our World Impact staff here in Wichita, including our director Daren Busenitz (Class of 1999) and Josh Somsel (Class of 2011).
Don spoke in three chapels to approximately 1,500 students. He quickly won over the students with his passion for Christ, his humor, and a challenge for them to give everything for the Lord. He was persistent throughout his talks that a love for Christ must be the foundation for missions. The energy of the students energized Don Davis and his talks to the students became more passionate as the week progressed.
Besides the chapel times, Don and I were in several classes and met with dozens of students. There is such a great legacy of missions at Moody and we were encouraged by the many students who have a deep love for Christ and are willing to make Him known in the cities.
Here is a quick video that summarizes our time at Moody.
