"Curious about how to know God and would like to talk to someone?"
This query rounded out a brief Cru survey, handed to Syracuse students at their 9/11 Activities Fair. Thanks to Cru intern, Amanda Burnett, all those surveyed were entered into our Mission Hub database, helping to ensure no interested student would fall through the cracks.
Along with Amanda, also responding to the self-identified "curious" is 2nd year Cru intern and '12 Dartmouth grad, Arielle Cannon. Within two weeks, Arielle witnessed God moving at least six young women from "curious" to "new believer!" Among them:
Ethnically diverse, now bound by a common identity, some of these women are already meeting in Cru small group Bible Studies. One has begun filling up her spiritual journal, a gift from Arielle; Two signed up for Cru's Fall Retreat; Another texted Arielle, "I'm looking forward to my new relationship with Christ!"
Two years ago, Cru staff members John and Bonnie Yelverton relocated to Syracuse from Yale. Now about 70 students gather in Grant Auditorium (Law Bldg) on Thursdays nights to learn God's word and be encouraged in their faith.
Praise God for the fruit born by this fledging team of four as they abide in Him!
