Will it be my plan? or God's plan?

Featuring: Cru Epicenter
Epicenter in Albany, NY became an environment of Kingdom riches as these Cru students:
MIT sophomore Jonathan described the long weekend as “a beautiful accident.” Just days before, at the urging of his campus staff, he decided to stop over in Albany en route from his Michigan home. “In the Soul Care seminar, I learned to marinate in God’s word instead of just reading it. I want to hear from God, not just knock out my daily requirement.”
For Kara, a freshman from western NY, things she’d been told by others finally clicked. “I now feel empowered by God to help other women who also struggle with body image and identity issues.”
Other students called parents or friends with conference insights: “Dad, I feel like God wants me to take the gospel to East Asia this summer. I just want to go!” Or, “After hearing how pornography acts on the brain like a drug, a group of us guys hung out and got honest about our struggles with this.”

Jordyn, a UConn freshman, came to Albany, despite feeling “not religious enough,” having never attended church. After two days, Jordyn told God, “I’m all in!” - the very words later used by the speaker when he challenged the students to GO, DO, SAY, and GIVE whatever God wants. Jordyn later said, "Cru Epicenter 2015 has been the most life-changing experience in my 18 years on this Earth. Thankful does not begin to describe my feelings toward this conference, my new friends, and especially the works of the Lord."
This is just a fraction of a new generation of Christian leaders that you, through your prayers and sacrificial gifts, have helped to create.
