It has been one year since we “reported” to our assignment in the Capital Region of New York. There is so much to praise God for! New movements launched at many schools, movements growing in leaps and bounds (especially at RPI), and God continues to bless us with so many blessings along the way. This month features the story of Kelly who had first heard about Ellen’s spiritual journey about a year ago but recently, met Christ through Natalie, a student that Ellen has been discipling for the past year!

February 2010 Newsletter
“So what do I need to do to ‘get back with God’?”
asked Will, a student from Tennessee on the beach in Panama City Beach, Florida yesterday. A student named Mark and I went out onto the beaches with more than 1100 other Campus Crusade students at Week 2 of the Big Break Conference to share our faith and listen to spring breaker’s spiritual stories as well. Please pray for Will as we think he is curious about a relationship with God and seems to know what he needs to do to get right with God but isn’t willing just yet.
Students sharing their faith near the Big Break Conference
We had 2 other great conversations after that one with Will as well in just a couple hours! Students who come down here to party and “live it up” are definitely seeking purpose and spiritual meaning in their lives, though some may not know it or admit it at times. Please PRAY as we continue to share our faith and also offer spring breakers the opportunity to serve the people of Haiti by helping us pack “One Million Meals” for Haiti at our conference center. You can read more about the conference and our service efforts by clicking on the links above.
“To Bid or not to Bid…” a personal update…
We thank you so much for praying for us with respect to our recent decision regarding placing an offer on the purchase of a house nearby where we live in Albany. We felt like it wasn’t the right time before we left for the Big Break conference to go forward with placing an offer. Of course things could change going forward but please keep this in prayer for us. We appreciate it very much!
