My goal is to see Cru partner with churches and students, to see the gospel advanced until everyone knows that they can have a loving relationship with their Creator! An image of that came together this month at an Easter festival in the field behind our local community college.
GO Church coordinated with students from high school and college to help set up and run 10 inflatables and carnival rides. I got to lead a team of Cru missionaries who spoke one-on-one with visitors and shared the gospel as well as opportunities to plug into God’s mission around the world. Karen’s gifts kicked into high-gear as she loved on people and got to really connect with them. I was even able to use my recent training on reaching folks with an Indian background—Cecil and Lu, from a Hindu family, seemed to really appreciate our conversation.
In the end, the pastor’s outreach team shared the gospel and around 30 people made decisions for Christ and my team sought them out for follow-up. Please pray that Easter draws many to Him!
