This summer was filled with many hours in Ridgeview Elementary School. It was in this school that we took two seminary classes (Intro to Christian Theology and Bible Study Methods) and then spent several weeks learning the ins and outs of being a Cru staff member. We are happy to announce that we are now officially employed by Cru! We are so excited about this next season of our lives and are so grateful that we are able to share it with you.
As we mentioned in our last letter, it was during our time of training that we would find out where we will be serving with the ministry. We met with our region’s placement office and, after much discussion and prayer, we committed to move to Portland, OR. We were not expecting this placement, but we know this is where the Lord is calling us for the foreseeable future.
The team in Portland is organized differently than here at Montana State; their goal is to reach 20 campuses with 160,000 college students as opposed to our team here where we reach 1 campus with 14,700 students. The scope is broad, but we are excited and anticipating what the Lord will do!
For the upcoming months, we will be raising support so that we can report to campus as soon as possible. We are eager to meet people who share our love and enthusiasm for the Great Commission!
