We hope you had a really nice Easter celebrating the resurrection. We talked Justin into coming home for the weekend. It was really nice to have him home for a couple of days. We also celebrated his birthday early. Another highlight was handing out Easter baskets to underprivileged children. It is always a blessing to see their faces light up. This is the third year we have joined friends in serving this way. Julie and their daughter packed over 250 baskets! However, our Easter weekend ended in an unexpected fashion when Jamie started having severe stomach pains. An ultrasound showed that it might be appendicitis so the doctors kept her for observation. Fortunately, it turned out to be a false alarm.
This spring, students from all over the nation have fanned out across the world in a number of mission projects. High school students have traveled to Spain, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, the Czech Republic, and Portugal. The stories and results of their efforts are still
coming in, but we know that hundreds of students have been exposed to the gospel as a result of their efforts. In addition, the team in Ecuador trained leaders from several other neighboring nations in how to do high school ministry. For the first time, many of the teams used the Snapshot cards that Dave developed to assist them in their efforts.
This week, Lynn will spend several days in meetings with members of the Cru Core Training Guild. One of their main focuses will be to work on new training materials that are in the process of being developed for both the high school and college ministries of Cru. These materials are due to be released in the fall. They should be much more user-friendly. Please pray for the team as they prepare for rollout in the fall.
We are grateful for your partnership with us in the Lord’s work!
