Feb/March Newsletter

Only this past Tuesday we had an exciting experience on campus:  A coworker on Cru staff and I prayed with a guy named Matt* to receive Christ at RPI, where I went to college and received my engineering degree.

We were actually filming a documentary on students’ views on campus and after the 3 or 4 questions we asked him, we shut off the camera and asked him if he thought it was possible to Know God Personally. He said definitely. But he also felt like he was only 60% sure that when he died he would go to heaven. I asked him if anyone had ever explained to him how to know God personally and he said no. I asked him to go to our ministry’s most highly clicked website http://everystudent.com (over 10 million unique visitors per year around the world!) on his laptop and click on “Knowing God Personally” at the top. And we read through it quickly. At the end he wanted to pray to ask Jesus into his heart. It was amazing to see God having worked already in his life ahead of time to bring him to that point! Pray for Matt* that he would get connected quickly in fellowship on campus as it is hard for commuters to do so when they don’t live on campus.

Thank you for praying and giving sacrificially so we can bring the gospel to the campuses of the Capital Region and beyond!
By His Grace daily,

*the names of students are often changed to respect privacy.
