Jimmy Johns Fast Food prides themselves on being “Freaky Fast.” Our kids [seen at JJ’s on the right] are rapidly growing, like little ones you love. The stakes are high for their hearts and minds, just like they are for college students.
We, Cru, want to be there to direct them to Jesus who’ll transform their lives as they grow!
Packing her bags and getting Cooper, our 5th grader,
ready for school; Jessi and Cooper hop into the van at 6:35am to
be on time for the Fellowship of Christian Students meeting (FSC). Last year FSC averaged 80 students every other week where they found donuts, games, encouragement, friends, and a talk about how God relates to their lives as pre-teens. Jessi leads FSC at Cooper’s school – she’s excited for what God will do! Would you pray God does a mighty work in students, through Jessi, and 5/6 graders would come into a personal relationship with Jesus.
In 2001 Jessi and I met (yup, that’s when the fireworks began!) while serving as a Cru Interns. We knew our calling to ministry to be 1-2 years initially, but now, 15 years later – we continue to sense God’s call!
Praise God – He has called 117 Cru Interns [pictured left] to serve in our Great Lakes Region universities (Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio) reaching students and professors for Christ!
In-between juggling 3 different kid school drop-off and pickup times, Jessi hops on the phone to coach interns. She is diligently working alongside the Intern Care Team mentoring, caring for, and coaching interns in their personal development to love Jesus. Because Jessi was an intern, she has a huge heart for interns, the difficulties or challenges they face, and life decisions ahead of them. Would you pray for these, Jessi, her team, and these interns this month?
