Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru): Middle East*

*With the lack of true religious freedom, the specific location remains undisclosed in print.

We work among the dry bones, amidst the remains of the early  church's epicenter where today churches have become museums.  We believe God has called us to speak His words and be a part of raising up a mighty army once again—not a physical army, but a spiritual one that will take His message into areas and countries where Westerners are not welcome. Believing university students to be tomorrow's key leaders, we are sowing on an influential campus to build a movement of young multiplying disciples of Jesus, raising up laborers to go to their countrymen and to the nations.

PRAYER REQUESTS:

1.   We need our relationships with the Lord to be intimate and sustaining.  It's difficult to make time and space in a life full of little ones.
2.  Please pray for God to soften the hearts and minds of the lost in this part of the world and for His raising up leaders to take the Gospel forward.
3.  Please pray for our kids as they grow in a world very different than the one Ginger and I grew up in.  Pray for hearts of faith, tenacity, and courage.

Anniversary – Dec 12, 2003
