The Singer's Score

“Do, Say, Give, Go” 
     Lord, I want to do what you want me to do, say what you want me to say, give what you want me to give, and go where you want me to go. This is what we pray students will continue to do with their lives each year at Cru Winter Conference. God wants every part of who we are and that is not an easy thing to give up, especially for a college student as they look towards their future with uncertainty. No matter where these students end up working or living God loves to help reach others through His people.
    This year we had  a great time at Cru Winter Conference where 1000 students gathered to worship the Lord and grow in their faith over the course of their Christmas break. Some fun opportunities that students had were packing backpacks for 8000 kids in Africa, going out on the day of outreach and loving on the city of Minneapolis by passing out food and sharing the gospel, as well as growing in community with each other as they continue to trust God for what He may have in store for each of them.  
     This year I also had the privilege of working as part of the on-site programming team where I had the opportunity to help put videos together for the conference.    
Pray for our upcoming "My Story" outreach as students share their testimonies with thousands of people both in person and online.  Pray many would hear the gospel & lives would be changed.
Pray that God would continue to soften the hearts of students and faculty on campus to be open to the gospel and that our students leaders would share Jesus with boldness.
