Changes in Student-Ville

It was really exciting to read this interview by Richard Cunningham - Head and Director of UCCF: http://www.adrian.warnock.info/2005/12/adrian-interviews-richard-cunningham.htm - it's a very comprehensive interview and really informative. I heard Richard Cunningham speak a couple of times at Birmingham Christian Union when I was on the Exec there - he is a brilliant speaker with an outstanding mind and a complete passion for the Gospel. It is clear from this interview that his heart is for the local church which is also amazing.

In the interview we are reminded that Terry Virgo was the keynote speaker at Relay - taking a series on Romans (do you remember how amazed I was?! ;) http://www.uccf.org.uk/resources/general/forum2005/index.php)

Richard Cunningham obviously has a high view of Terry as well; "Terry is a world-renowned Bible teacher with a high view of Scripture and believes passionately in proclamation evangelism".

A great interview and well worth reading!

One of the other amazing things from Terry being there was a great account of healing.

I don't know if you're aware, but Terry has a particular gifting in healing with backs / lengthening legs etc...

There was a girl there [non charismatic, from a uccf very non charismatic CU etc] who had a back problem and went to talk to Terry and although nervous, she allowed him to pray for her...

Anyhow, the Holy Spirit moved and she was healed etc...

Completely overwhelmed by the HS and is now exercising gifts etc...

Praise God for people being surprised by the spirit

If he would do that with a whole lot of other UCCF people, it would be great ;)

Wow!! Great to hear that testimony!! I had heard rumours that Terry had really stepped out amazingly in the gift of healing.

That is so great!
