R Goodman R. Goodman A15 6:21 While many Coeds were in their dorm rooms plugging in curling irons early every Friday evening, their male counter- parts were fueling their cars in preparation for a trip to a restaurant or a show. At the same time. someone flicked on the lights in Rober- son Chapel and started to push chairs into one part of the room. Another person wandered in, and the two began to talk. Then another came in and another until the room was full of laughing, hugging, chatting people who eventually took their places on the floor and started to sing. It was 6121 p.m., time for Mission Outreach to begin. After the singing the program might have included a film or slide show about missions, a talk by a missionary returned or on leave from his field. reports from student campaigns, prayer groups, or a period for writing to missionaries. The activities were diverse but were unified in their purpose: "arousing mission awareness," said Gaston Tarbet, Mission Outreach adviser.

Goodman lenged for some kind of specific involvement," Tarbet said, listing campaigns, the Missionary Apprentice Resource Korps and career mission work as types of involvement. A statement drawn up by Mission Outreach members a few years ago read, "Mission Outreach exists to create an awareness of Gods desire for His world that pervades cam- pus life and to provide a source of challenging opportunities, information and channels to fulfill that desire in an at- mosphere of spiritual fellowship, edification, affirmation and maturation." The students who attended the weekly meetings said that Mission Outreach fulfilled its goals. Keith Gafner, a graduate student from Bitton, Mich., said, "I love it because of the fellowship and because the people there have an at- titude of reaching out to other people through evangelism and missions." After attending Mission Outreach one time when the pro- gram was devoted to prayer, Susan Lawrence, a freshman from Houston, said, "It made me feel really good. To me it was more than just a devotional, it was a lot more personal . . . I'm just mad I didn't find out about it before." Shaun McDonnell, a senior from Beamsville, Ontario, Canada, and his wife,joyce, had attended Mission Outreach for three yearsjoyce said Mission Outreach changes people who have lived in the Bible Belt all their lives. "People who go can't help but have their eyes opened, and then perhaps their hearts are touched to try to move where the church is smallfjoyce said. Mission Outreach sponsored retreats and organized an In- ternational Taster's Banquet each semester. Other Mission Outreach activities included sponsoring trips to the World Mission Workshop each fall, sending students to national and international missions conferences, writing to MARK students and assisting with Spring Break Campaigns. This year some Mission Outreach members helped open the ACU campaign to Lubbock Christian College students, Those members hoped to help LCC students start their own cam- paigns, said Bruce Woodall, sophomore from Sulphur Springs and Mission Outreach leader in the spring. He said his goal for Mission Outreach was to make it an activity everyone on campus could identify with. He called Mission Outreach a time for fellowship, inspiration, challenge and building of purpose. And, to Mission Outreach members, the time for increasing missions awareness was Friday at 6:21 p.m. - Rafl1elO'Rear iffsyy iii. ,Y 73 , .... 1511:-nrlm:-4 oben-genie zziqaggag osainfmam 300 0- -oggg-1333 0: - : 359232201 "-owlgolpb Xm5"'-.3m'gL 'Doon' '5 9 3511259.23 '2.'139322s' Ff'5':-.Weis 3 'Q og-,O -0 x Z gl- rr 5 2 an ix, . .X f 1 N.
