All over the country, (while many college students spend their Spring Breaks in ways that can damage their bodies, hearts, and minds) many Cru students have been investing in their walk with God and joining in His rescue mission. After 2 years of being unable to host such events due to Covid, it has been powerful for these young people to experience missions again, many for the first time.
One group of 100 students from Kentucky, came to Destin, FL for a chance to spend some significant quality time with each other and the missionary staff.
Cru leaders were able to speak about and model an identity in Christ. Freshmen got to learn from Seniors over “family dinners.” Bonds of friendship were built during city-wide scavenger hunts. Here’s what some of them said:
“I didn’t believe God actually liked me.” – Brady (freshman)
“This week was hard for me because I don’t know how to rest. I need to yield that control in my life.” – Mackenzie (sophomore)
“Everyone here has accepted me in ways I couldn’t have imagined before coming on this trip” – Ornin
