One of the main purposes of this trip is to meet Greek university students that share with us the vision of hope for Greece through Jesus Christ. Hope is a rare thing here in Greece. The economy is falling hard, the citizins don't trust their government, and people are leaving the country for better opportunities.
Of course there are the students that are not as optimistic, but that's what's great about Greece; they LOVE to talk! They are so so courious why we have such faith and why we traveled half way around the world to spend our summer on a hot grafitti-filled campus. They are so open-minded. An average conversation last over 2hours. When we have to leave in the middle of a conversation we have to apologize and explain clearly why we have to leave. We have been on campus initianting conversations about 10 days for around 3 hours a day. With the average converstaion rate; we have talked to about 20 groups of friends or "paraeas" and all of them have been so amazing and spirit filled.
