Summer Time

     School's Out, Seniors Graduated, Dorms are Empty, Summer is HERE!  So what is next for students?  Over the   summer months students have a variety of opportunities.  Some stay in Grand Forks attending summer school, some go home and get a job, some stay in Grand Forks to work, and  others have decided to give anywhere between two and twelve weeks of their summer to attend a Cru Summer Mission.  Our hope and prayer is that no matter where students are spending their summer that they will walk with Jesus, find a community of believers to grow with, and see themselves as on mission; looking for opportunities to share Jesus with friends, family, and co-workers that are around them.  
     This year 17 UND students have surrendered some or all of their summer to attend a Cru Summer  Mission.  These students are being sent around the world to places like: Milwaukee, Medora, and the Jersey Shore, to Poland, South Asia, and Australia.  It is so exciting that these 17 students have surrendered their summer, allowing God to grow them, challenge them, and use them to share the gospel with people they have not even met yet.  Pray with us that God would meet each of their financial needs, that they would be challenged in their walk with the Lord, and that they would boldly proclaim Jesus to those around them.
Your Partners in the Great Commission, 
We have arrived in North Myrtle Beach - Pray for our staff team as we prepare for students to arrive on May 23.  Pray for student hearts to be open and ready for God to be at work.
Pray for the 17 students going on Summer Mission from UND.  Pray God would provide financially & that God would grow them, train t hem and use them to further the gospel.
Pray for student sat home or in Grand Forks this summer, that they would find community, walk with Jesus, & tell other about Him.
