A chapel service that began last Wednesday at Asbury University in Kentucky continues 7 days later.
Thousands have come in and out of Asbury University’s halls to receive a new touch from God.
Lexington 18 News reported that “many people are receiving a lot of healing and restoration in their lives and people are coming to Christ for the first time and hearing the gospel for the first time.”
The chapel service started last week and did not end at the regular scheduled time as 30 students decided to stay in the hall to seek God.
Those students never gave up and continued to sing and pray until the next day.
