Cru’s influence on Teens

Personal News

We hope you are doing well. We are thankful that summer has arrived because that means we see our college kids more. Even though they are busy with summer school classes, and in Justin’s case, an internship, they are around much more. We are trying to make the most of the time together.

Ministry Update

As we mentioned in our last letter, Dave has taken time the past couple of years to survey students who have been involved with Cru during high school. Here are comments from several of them.

“Cru in high school was one of the reasons I became a Christian. Since I experienced this personally, I want to give high school students the same opportunity.”

“So thankful for y’all. I now have a meaningful personal relationship with God that is full of his love and grace…so THANK YOU!”

“Cru led me to a relationship with God. When I first attended Cru, I was not religious. But through Cru, God worked through me and changed me. Since I had this experience, I want to give to other middle and high schoolers. The past two years as a volunteer, I have stepped up and become more of a leader in Cru.”

“I became a Christian at a Rocky Mountain Getaway. I often felt alone and that no one really knew what was going on in my life and when I heard a message I just cried because I had forgotten how He was with me the whole time.”

“When I moved across the country in 8th grade I became depressed. I was introduced to Cru and invited to come to meetings. The summer before 9th grade, I went to a Cru summer camp where I committed my life to Christ.”

“Now I am much more confident in my faith and it shows. I had the opportunity to go on a missions trip to Portugal that dramatically widened my world view and showed me just how big God really is. I honestly have no idea where I would be today if it were not for Cru to help me solidify my relationship with Christ.”

Thanks for impacting these students’ lives. We are grateful for your partnership with us in the Lord’s work!
