Three days prior I left for Orlando, I was still 27% short of my goal to fully cover the cost of my training. But I know God wasn’t going to turn me down. He called me into full-time ministry, and so with a little reminding of His promise of provision, He calmed my spirit. And sure enough, He showed up! Donations kept coming in, that before the end of my training, total amount raised was 136% of the goal! Praise the Lord!!!
The New Staff Training was fantastic! I learned a lot, no doubt. It was so encouraging and refreshing to meet Cru staff members and fellow trainees who came from all around the U.S., representing different Cru ministries: Campus Ministry, Family Life, City, Athletes in Action, Cru Military, to name a few.
Listening to the bio and testimonies of older staff members, their tenure ranging from 27 to 48 years, was so inspiring! They’ve been on staff that long but their enthusiasm and passion to serve the Lord, as if they’ve just received Christ yesterday. Their wealth in wisdom, the depth of their insight, the aura of strength, conviction, confidence and stability emanating from them, were just amazing! God has surely blessed Cru for such a time as ours, with such powerful workforce dedicated to fulfilling the Great Commission.
So having completed the required training and having taken vows, on May 16, 2015, I was fully commissioned as a Missionary of Campus Crusade for Christ, along with these lovely folks!
Approved for endorsement!
The day after I came back from training was my scheduled interview with the Missions Leadership Team of our home church in Frisco, TX – Stonebriar Community Church. The outcome? I was granted the seal of approval to be recognized as of one our church’s supported missionaries! Yay!!! I could never be happier that day. It’s like having mom and dad on board with me as I set sail further along my missionary journey. God is just awesome!
I must find a team of partners who will support my ministry to get fully-funded. As soon as this team is complete, I can report to my assignment. Please pray for favor and that I could clearly share about my ministry as I meet with individuals, small groups, other churches and organizations in the days ahead and invite them to partner with me in prayer and monthly financial support.
I know that God has already prepared the men and women who will comprise my team of supporters. I would love to see you as one of them! We are in for a treat. I couldn’t wait to see how God will use our partnership in accomplishing the task of giving every man a chance to hear the Gospel.
Let’s talk soon, if we haven’t already. Please feel free to leave me a message in the Contact tab if you have any questions or would like to meet with me to hear more about my ministry.
Love sincerely in Christ,
Partner with me today! In prayer and/or financial support, I will be so grateful for it. God bless you!
