Week-long revival at Asbury University reaches masses

The students at Asbury University in Wilmore, KY, gather three times a week for an hour-long chapel service. But last Wednesday morning, students decided to stay, sensing the presence of God more than they ever had. Many of them, joined by more from all over, are still there.

In the days that have followed, people have driven from around the country to witness and be a part of this movement of God. As people have poured onto the Asbury campus, including students from 24 universities, the generous staff has prepared meals, directed traffic, and cleaned bathrooms to allow the students to continue worshipping. 

Now, what has become the longest chapel service on this campus since the last revival there about 50 years ago is awakening hearts for the Lord all over the world.
