We hope you had a great Easter. Ours was very nice. One of the highlights was handing out Easter baskets and other goodies in an underprivileged area of Orlando. We handed out over 400 baskets. This is the fourth year that Julie’s friend, Kailyn, has organized this event.
We are in a busy season of ministry. Dave has been busy putting together several surveys. The one for high school seniors is designed to give a picture of their involvement in Cru throughout high school. He is also surveying college students who were involved in Cru during high school to see how they have transitioned to college.
It has been super encouraging to see the impact that Cru has had in the lives of students. From the senior survey, we are seeing that 54% of the involved students indicated that Cru helped them in their personal journey to come to faith in Christ.
Sixty-four percent of the college students who were involved in our high school ministry last year indicated that they are still growing in their walk with God.
Lynn has been working with a team which is about to roll out a new Core Training program for all of Cru that will be used by interns and staff who are new to the ministry. While much of the training is appropriate for those working with high school students, it does need some adjustments for our high school audience. Lynn hopes to get the high school piece finished by the end of the school year.
We are grateful for your partnership with us in the Lord’s work!
