Around the world most colleges have classes started in recent weeks and so Cru students, staff, and volunteers are actively involved in welcoming students, initiating spiritual conversations with students on campus and online sharing the love of Jesus in word and with actions.
We just wanted to give you a quick update we received from our leadership about how people have been responding to the gospel online at our evangelistic and conversation starting website, EveryStudent.com, which is in 42 languages. Here’s an update below from Marilyn, fellow Cru staff at our headquarters in Orlando. We are so excited to be a part of reaching thousands of people around the world with you both online and in person!!!


“In the last few months, through all 42 language versions of EveryStudent.com, we’ve seen an average of 1,000 people a day tell us they’ve asked Jesus into their lives. Many people quickly share with others what helped them know God. Here are heartfelt comments from a few…

“By the time i finished the article I was very delighted and smiling very broadly. Then I saw your question “Do you think Jesus could use you to tell others about him? This is my greatest desire. Just like he used the Samaritan woman.” ~ Clovis

I’ve just completed The Spiritual Adventure Pack and have signed up for the study of the Gospel of John.  I’ve been on the periphery of Christianity since 1992, but my ‘faith’ ebbed and flowed, it was based on feelings. I really want to thank you for this study pack because it has shown me realistic and logical reasons for believing in God’s existence, answers I had never had before. So I’ve now begun a relationship with Jesus based on a solid foundation.” ~ Nicki

The emails you are keeping sending me I also send the link to christians who didn’t have the privilege to receive your emails like me. When you send me emails I also share with them in facebook and whatsapp. Your emails are spreading through those social media and some people ask me how to access it. Then I tell them that they can download the Every Student app on their phone! Thank you so much!” ~ Samson

“Thank you for the wonderful and inspiring words. You have been very helpful. I am now about 18 months as a believer coming from a staunch Hindu background.” ~ Naresh

I really want to God more but I don’t know how to start. This is the chance and opportunity. thank you so much. I’ve been praying for this.” ~ Sophia
 
I have started from the beginning with you and each article has left my heart pounding with life and happiness.” ~ Doreen
 

“I felt overwhelmed as to where to start and your websites and emails have steered me in the right direction and helped to answer my questions, so thank you!!” ~Rachel


“The wonderful words you have been sharing with me through emails and everystudent web links have really helped me. A lot of things l didn’t understand before now l understand them. l finally realized that l need God. I am happy that l came across your site after l had searched for Starting a relationship with God on google.” ~ Silinganisiwe

Your partnership with us is making it possible for students, like Clovis and Samson, to hear the gospel in their own language and make a decision about Jesus, and then help their friends to have the same opportunity.

Thank you for praying for salvation, boldness of faith and for more doors to be opened on campuses all over America and beyond!

We have a new Assignment in Cru to Announce soon! (stay tuned)

“Little did I know that [God] was about to rock my world!”

“Little did I know that [God] was about to rock my world!”

… were the words of Logan in Greenville, SC. This was our second summer of inviting students and faculty around the world to experience missions throughout their summer even if they are at home.

Logan and his friends participating online in Mission Summer in August

they had some of our best speakers in Cru walk through a guided online curriculum and challenge all who listened to take faith steps.  Some gathered with other students each Sunday, others watched during a break from work.  They were encouraged to live on mission throughout their entire lives and given tools as to how to reach their campus this fall.  Logan goes on: “The first night I joined, Roger Hershey spoke about having a world Christian perspective. The ways I was challenged and my eyes opened during that session left me speechless.  I started bragging about what God already did in my life but little did I know that He was about to rock my world. The next Sunday night, I invited some of the high school and middle school students from the church where I was interning. We had 10 students come,and they thoroughly enjoyed the topic of how to have a mission mindset. Clearly it struck a heartstring because the next week we had 22 students join in. They took what they heard to  heart and began telling others about what God was doing.  God has given me a desire to start a bible study in my community that brings together both high school and college students from the local schools. There are five colleges and five high schools nearby.  So far, we have over 70 students from Furman University show an interest in helping along with many other students from across Greenville.  I cannot tell you how pumped we are to begin school knowing what God may have in store! Mission Summer truly promotes a passion for missions and encourages and challenges all the students involved in a positive way. I am so happy to have been a part of this project and don’t know if my walk with God would be as strong as it is right now if it wasn’t for my involvement with Mission Summer!”

          Because of His Grace Always,
