News From The Swamp

Campus Crusade for Christ
Volume 1, Issue 7 April 2008

Every Student in Every Place
Our mission, as Campus Crusade, is to reach every student in every place at UF so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Christ. Earlier this semester our Campus Director, Jimmy Trent, announced to 400 students that he was expecting God to bring 5,000 students into the movement in 5 years. That is a large number and many of us were skeptical but after a recent leadership retreat God gave us more of a vision for what he is really doing on this campus. We asked our leaders to write down how many spiritual conversations they had in the past month, how many Gospel presentations they gave in the past month and how many people they witnessed give their lives to Christ in the past year. These were the results: In the past month alone, our students have had roughly 2,430 conversations about Jesus and have shared the gospel 183 times. And in this entire year, our movement has seen 118 students give their lives to Christ!!! Please join me in praising God for every conversation had and every student whom he has brought into a relationship with him. We had no idea that God was doing so much right under our noses. 5,000 in 5 years? No problem.

Lifelines Summer Project
In the last newsletter I announced I was joining staff with Crusade’s outdoor ministry Lifelines. Before I go through staff training I will report to my summer assignment in Acadia National Park, Maine. Our staff will work with 20 students from across the country, including Ashley, whom I disciple at UF, focusing on student leadership in Crusade. It will give me an opportunity to work as staff on a project, learn more about Lifelines and bond with the other staff I’ll be working with next year. This is a significant event closing out my year as an intern and beginning my journey as full time staff. Before I report I must raise an additional $5,000 to cover the costs. As you have invested your prayers, thoughts and finances to our mission throughout the year we have seen God do amazing things! Would you be in the position to help with a special gift of $500, $250, $100 or some other amount to enable me to go? Checks made payable to Campus Crusade for Christ can be sent to me at: 1326 NW 11th Rd. Gainesville, FL 32605 or you can donate online at: http://give.ccci.org/ give/0593522.
