Is it too Late!?

It’s Definitely NOT too Late.

If you received a red letter from us in the mail over a week ago, you will know how we are praising God for what he’s done in the last year and where we are at financially and how you can help, as the Lord leads you.  If you didn’t receive one, then we don’t have your latest address. We like to send out cards from time to time and also special mailings here and there, so we’d love to have your address. Feel free to enter it securely here.  If you didn’t receive your red letter, please click below to read it.  If you would like to help us financially with our shortfall, please feel free to send back the enclosed response card with the little envelope addressed to us.  If you send in any financial gift postmarked by tomorrow, it will be tax-deductible!  If you didn’t receive a letter but want to help financially, you can go to and send in an electronic gift or follow instructions there for sending in a check by mail.

End of the Year letter

If you want to start praying regularly for us or even if you already are, it is always encouraging to hear that you are. Feel free to send us a short email or text (or whatever kind of message you want 🙂 ) to encourage us.  Regardless of your financial position to give a special gift or not, you are a blessing to us as you pray / give already! thank you so much!

What happened in January? The Boston Winter Conference

Boston Winter Conference 2010

What a beginning we had to the new year and to a new decade! It was amazing to see students experience God and get to know other students who have placed their faith in our Lord!  The Boston Winter Conference this year was one of our favorites yet over the years we have been.

“God is going to do great things this semester! I will do whatever it takes!”

… said Juan recently (via text), a new believer and new student to our movement at RPI.  We had just shared our faith with a student he had just met recently in his dorm on campus using an innovative short film to begin asking questions of each other about faith and spirituality.  I am excited to see Juan growing in his faith and putting into practice skills he is learning on how to create space in his friendships for spiritual conversations and for God to come up naturally.  He and I readGodSpace over winter break, where Doug Pollock, a fellow Campus Crusade staff member, shares some great ideas for doing just this.  We hope to bring you more stories and updates soon!

JUST Happened: God’s work doesn’t end at Boston Winter Conference; Rather it STARTS!

Friends, this is an update from Ellen from this past week! Enjoy!


JUST Happened: God’s work doesn’t end at Boston Winter Conference; Rather it STARTS!  🙂

I just had an exciting thing happen that I wanted to share with you.
As you may have read a couple weeks ago(in our December newsletter), we took about 25 students to Boston for the Boston Winter Conference. One student from SCCC named Susan came with us. She had been involved with me on the campus, but honestly I didn’t know how committed she was with what we were doing at the school. At the conference she shared how exciting it was to connect with God and with her peers.
Well when getting back she stepped out in faith to share with a student she knows at SCCC all about the conference.

The neat thing is that I received an email through from a student named Sarah.

She also goes to SCCC. I just got back about an hour or so ago from meeting Sarah at panera!Sarah shared that she heard about Campus Crusade from Susan and she wanted to find out what it was about so started looking on the web. She sat across the table from me and shared how she didn’t know Jesus, but had some background in being brought to church when she was younger. The exciting part is that Sarah had never heard the true Gospel and had never known that God’s love is unconditional! I asked her how confident she is in a relationship with Jesus. She shared she wasn’t and that she wasn’t sure Jesus even heard her prayers! Long story short, I shared the Gospel with Sarah! Please pray she makes a decision to follow him. She shared how “scared and fearful she is to surrender”, but wants to see where this friendship leads!

I’m hopeful and excited! I also had the opportunity to call Susan on the way home and She shared that she didn’t realize that she had made an impact on Sarah but had been praying for Sarah and Susan said, ” Wow that’s so cool, God is so faithful! that made my night! Thanks so much for calling me!” And before hanging up we prayed for Sarah.

Would you please join us in prayer for Sarah? Please pray she ponders my words today at Panera and that she surrenders to Jesus tonight!

Thank you all so much for your support and prayers!

February 2009 Newsletter – Boston Winter Conference Edition

Hello Friends and Partners in Ministry!

It has been a very exciting month as we are nearing the end of our initial support process and gearing up for a commissioning service very soon for us at our church in New York! God has been doing great things in the students lives, most notably through the recent annual conference we attended and worked at in Boston last month.   Please enjoy the stories highlighted in the attached newsletter.  This month’s letter is a little special as it has 2 pages instead of the usual 1 page.   You can click on each image to view the entire picture file.

Note to Facebook users:  Soon we hope to start up a new group on facebook for those of you who are more prone to check facebook messages before you check your email.  We’ll keep you posted!

God Speed,

John and Ellen
