Over the 5 years of mobilizing young missionaries I, Scott, receive updates and reports of changed lives happening through Cru movements in each corner of the world. People are encountering Jesus and growing in Him! These are life-changing stories that you are likely praying would happen in your son, daughter, grandkid, etc. during their college years or after. You must know your support and care for Jessi and I, truly is multiplying lifetime Christ-centered laborers, who are equipped and ready to introduce Christ to your loved ones as they walk onto their respective university or now in the workplace.
Roughly 3 years ago, I trained and developed a career missionary couple. Now, God is really using their ministry in Illinois to reach beyond the campus! Like the story below…
The life-changing stories I receive are incredible – like a student at a university in Illinois named “Cat”, who once was a Muslim, now a Christian. Full of faith but afraid, she picked up her phone, dialed her Iranian Muslim mom who’d historically denied Christianity, and began sharing what she believes God is calling her to do this summer. To her amazement, Cat’s mom told her how proud she was of her and how she’s beginning to “believe in your God and …that it is true that Jesus Christ is His son and that He was sent to die in our world for our wrong doings.”
Cat says, “This was a huge deal because she had never proclaimed Christ as truth and this was one step closer to her salvation. I just ask for prayers as I slowly talk to her and that God would work in her to take that last leap.” Cat is one of many students who are reaching out to those around them in intentional ways to engage people with the message of the Gospel. Praise God for his work in the lives of students like her!
