Strauses Reach Kutztown Students Through Cru

Cru’s Winter Conference is admittedly my personal favorite event that Cru holds for the students each year. It was WC of 2016-2017 (my senior year of college) that was my first exposure to what Cru is! I remember being struck by a few things: the global & continually spreading size of Cru, the diversity of believers that gathered in Jesus’ name, and the absolute boldness that thousands of Christians have over the same goal of ushering in the second coming…

Happy 2021 from North Carolina!

Yale Students Hunger To Hear From God

An Update From Jenny Groff Oh happy day! Some students move back to Yale today. Though they’ll be quarantining for the foreseeable future, my heart is glad to know they’re just down the street. In January, we embarked on virtual A Journey to Hearing God conference, to encourage students to turn to God and learn to hear His voice. Our wonderful interns put together the most beautiful journal in the two weeks before winter break and mailed them out. We…

Greetings from Benjamin Zimmerman in Nepal

Dear Friends, I have had a childhood like very few others in the world. My cultural identity lies not in one particular place, but seemingly all over the world. Born in Syracuse, New York, I became accustomed to transitions from a very early age, traveling from New York to Alaska to Kathmandu Nepal within ten weeks of my arrival into the hands of an American dad and an Irish mom. For the last 16 years, I have lived in Nepal,…

Serve Ministry Supports Kassidy and Caden Strause in 2021 in their mission with Cru at Kutztown University

Greetings and congratulations for joining us in 2021! We’ve been able to hear from many of you during the holiday season about how things are going and what some of you are facing as we step forward into a new year together. For most, you’ve expressed emotions and events being all over the place from extreme highs to extreme lows. We feel that! And for those of you we have not been able to connect with recently, we can only…

Update from HUMC Missionaries, José and Audrey Banales

Dear HUMC Friends, Our wish this year is that you will see God’s blessings for you in surprising ways that you do not expect – ways that may seem ordinary, but would not have happened without God’s touch. I’ve heard it said that a coincidence is an “unexpected occurrence in which God chooses to remain anonymous.” May God continue to surprise you today! Our prayer requests will tell you what’s happening so far this year. Thanks for Praying! Please pray…

Update from Julie Campbell

Spring has brought us some heavy rains, although they are not as bad as last year. The rains keep us from visiting Life for Children orphans and guardians, but we do get a day off now and then when roads are too flooded for us to travel. That’s when the Lord lets us rest, or catch up on reports and emails! Because of new government restrictions, we have had to cancel fellowships and postpone crusades. Outdoor meetings cannot exceed 100…

Latest newsletter from The Wrights in NC.

Dear Friends and Family, We trust this finds you and your families well.

The main part of the newsletter is titled Change, planned and unplanned.…

Life for Children Update

Dear Friends at Hempfield UMC, Thank you so much for your generous support of $4,080 for Life for Children Ministry this past year.

The construction of homes for widows, student classrooms, the school library and dormitory has become even more important in the wake of…
