Reconnecting with girls in my Bible study at the first Cru
meeting. L-R: me, Laura, Eddye, and Tyler
Our family tradition is to have 'celebration breakfast' every Friday morning and celebrate the things we've seen God do throughout the week.  We had a lot to talk about this morning! The first week of classes is coming to a close as students head out of town for Labor day weekend, but it was a great week!  We had our first Cru weekly meeting on Tuesday night and had over 100 students show up. It was fun to meet some new freshmen there as well as reconnecting with students from last year.

One of my favorite things this week was following up surveys that we did the first two nights of school during dinner. Students indicated if they were interested in hearing more about Cru or learning about how to know God personally. We stop by their dorms to chat with them and answer questions. The first girl I talked to was Babie. I was with my friend, Brenda, who will be leading a Bible study in the dorms. Babie had marked that she was interested in Cru and in how to know God personally.  We chatted for a bit and then shared with her how she could come into a personal relationship with God. As we got done sharing, we asked if that was something she wanted in her life and it was clear that God had been working in her already, preparing her to enter into relationship with Him.  Brenda and I had the privilege of praying with Babie to come to know Jesus!  What a sweet moment.  God was so gracious to let us be part of that!  Please pray for Babie as she begins her journey with the Lord.

more updates to come.....!
