Asbury Student: 'We Will Keep Going as Long as the Holy Spirit Tells Us'

People continue to ask Alexandra Presta if the Asbury University Revival, which has been going on non-stop for a week in the school's chapel, was planned.

The answer? An unequivocal "no."

In an interview with CBN and Faithwire's Billy Hallowell, Presta, the editor of the school's newspaper, The Asbury Collegian, says there is no way she and her fellow students could have concocted this monumental happening in the body of Christ.

"This was purely God moving and keeping people here and bringing others in," Presta says. "People are crossing state lines to come here. It's absolutely insane.

"This is truly different because no one expected this to happen. This was literally the Holy Spirit choosing that day and this group of people. There's nothing overly special about Asbury or the students, but the Holy Spirit just chose to fall down on us and touch our hearts. You knew it was different because our postures were different. We were to open to God's love and what the Holy Spirit is trying to do."

And as of Tuesday morning, it is showing no signs of stopping or slowing down, Presta says.

"I've had people from Brazil and from Italy reaching out to me. It's just mind blowing. It's the importance of recognizing that it's just a building, and God is not limited to just a building or this campus or this town. Some might feel led to come, and we want you here. But recognize the fact that the same Holy Spirit that is here is with you wherever you are."
