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 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

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)
HVCC Students gathered at our Directors' House for "Cru Connect" dinner and training time
We were sitting together in our local directors’ home when Jamie** said “Even though I’ve been raised going to church my whole life, it wasn’t until this year for the first time in my whole life that I actually finally have someone discipling me.”

Jamie is just one young student who is experiencing the gospel being lived out into her life through the spiritual multiplication process that God is using through Cru at our movement at Hudson Valley Community College. We are excited for her as she experiences this for the first time and takes steps of faith!
PLEASE PRAY for John as he conducts a training for our New York and New England Cru staff . He’ll be teaching them how to use new electronic tools for email, file sharing, team collaboration, scheduling, and more that many companies have reported have increased productivity 20-30% when all of the employees adopt and use the new software together. This is exciting because it will put tools in the hands of staff that will help us to live on Mission for the Kingdom even more effectively as we Win, Build, and Send students for Christ!
Thank you for partnering with us to make this happen for our students and for Our Lord!
Grateful for you and Jesus,
