Campaigners is our bible study which allows leaders and students to explore God's Word together. At Hillcrest High School, a lot of our students don't own Bibles outside of their grandma's King James Version, if that. Sadly, that's the only perception of God’s Word that a lot of our students have - a language that is unapproachable and inapplicable to them.
It can be difficult to have a Bible study when no one owns a personal Bible besides the leaders. This was a growing problem that our girl leaders were facing and wanting to fix. They came to me asking if there was any way we could get our campaigner girls Bibles of their own. Without hesitation, I called our committee chair, David Stringfield. If I'm being honest here, I was hoping that he would personally write a check to purchase Bibles or that he would point me in the direction of someone that would. However, God had something much bigger planned! The next day after contacting David, he informed me that his daughter's middle school campaigners group with girls from Hockaday wanted to use their own money to purchase the Bibles. At first I couldn't believe that a group of middle school students would want to do that; but sure enough, they contacted me saying "pick whatever Bibles the girls want and we'll take care of the rest". A week later, I was picking up boxes of high quality Bibles to surprise our high school girls with at campaigners.
These Hillcrest girls now have the opportunity to really dig into God's Word together. Sadly, there are still a large number of students in North Dallas who don't own Bibles. God used a group of middle school girls to make a life long impact on our students. The Hillcrest girls saw other young girls being the hands and feet of Christ and witnessed how God will come and meet them where they have need. Would you consider letting Him use you to do the same?
