Hello! my name is Bailey Ferguson and I am from Kingwood, TX! My hobbies include practicing calligraphy, watching movies, playing with my many cats, and hanging out with my friends. My all time favorite food is macaroni and cheese (more specifically, Annie's white cheddar and shells, the purple box, *highly recommend). I enjoy the simple things in life and let the good times roll.
Why did you join the Pursuit Ministries?
I joined Pursuit ministries because it was really something I felt God was leading me towards. I just transferred to Texas A&M and had no idea where I would fit in, but the Lord presented this organization to me and thankfully, I was accepted! Through my experiences, I feel like God has given me a story that shows his grace and mercy and it is something I want to share with others to create disciples and help lead people towards Christ.
What is your favorite bible verse and why?
My favorite bible verse is Galations 2:20, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me". I love this verse because it shows God's grace through the gospel and the hope we have in Christ as believers here on Earth.
Words of encouragement for High School/Middle School Girls:
Stand firm in your beliefs and put your hope in Christ and not in worldly things. Times will come when we fail because all people fall short of the glory of God but it is in those times that we can look towards God and remember that Jesus is the only thing in this world that can satisfy us and our faith can grow. Because of Jesus' sacrifice, we are able to call out to God in our deepest places and be redeemed. We do not have to live in shame and regret because we have been saved by the blood of Jesus. Grow from your experiences and allow God to move and bring glory to him through you. "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything" James 1: 2-4
