Quest Ministries is all about investing in lost people’s lives, being salt and light to them, drawing them closer to the Lord—to His heart. I have been so blessed by the love and example of both Dave and Linda as they invest in my life. They not only encourage and pray over my spiritual walk, but also the seemingly small things that are taking place in my life at this time. They are truly genuine, and I have been so blessed.
To be able to just talk about the important issues facing my generation is such a big deal to me.
Each Friday night the college Veritas group meets at the Ludwigs' home. Our times together have been amazing. Being able to talk about the important issues facing my generation is such a big deal to me. Dave has taught us that it is about us discovering for ourselves what the Instruction Manual says about the questions we are asking. Sometimes I feel like taking the easy way out our or the lazy way out and just listening to the opinions of men—but Dave just doesn’t let us do that. He is constantly encouraging us to be Bereans and to check out the Scriptures for ourselves. This approach to the Christian life has changed me and made me a woman of conviction. I credit Quest and the ministry of Dave for that.
We did a number of amazing things in an attempt to reach out to the unsaved.
This last summer I had the privilege of serving as one of the summer interns with Quest Ministries. We did a number of amazing things in an attempt to reach out to the unsaved. For example, we would go to Antelope Valley College and offer Otter Pops for free. Then, according to our plan, we would attempt to engage the kids we met in conversations for at least five minutes. That might seem like a very simple thing to do—but it isn’t! Just learning to talk to people and being trained to listen to them has made me so much more compassionate and effective at sharing the gospel. I praise God that I’m much more able to communicate with lost friends and able to clearly share the gospel with them now.
Recently, I was able to complete the discipleship material with a good friend. We met together weekly for eight weeks and had a really cool time discovering the foundations of the Christian faith. What amazed me most about the Quest material was how it not only helped us to not only discover the basics but also provided us with the resources, passages, and direction to go much deeper into each of the relevant topics.
