Dear Praying Friends,
Please pray for us as 34 gather from June 1-23 for In the City for the City summer mission in Kansas City. University students, emerging leaders and Cru staff come together for a city immersion experience that will alter everyone’s life. One student who formerly engaged with us in this mission said, “My heart has been wrecked, my world has been rocked, and I will never be the same.”
WATCH THIS 90 SEC VIDEO to hear from Becca about her experience. You'll be inspired, we promise!
Our summer mission participants will interact with a coalition of city leaders from a variety of cultures and experience. These leaders are committed to multiplying church communities, authentic outreach, and the well-being of the greater Kansas City area. Together we will assist in summer school programming, work with urban ministries and churches, learn how to serve our city, engage with the arts, and initiate strategic evangelistic outreaches.
There are MANY other events, three of which are promoted in the picture below. It can serve as a prayer reminder. Thank you ahead of time for praying!
Evangelism works in our everyday life - story 2.
Dave Robinsons and I (Gabor) were flying home from a conference. At the airport a lady initiated a conversation with us. We've learned that she is from Colorado and a big supporter of abortion. As we've continued the discussion about the value of life, we were able to share the gospel with her in a non-threatening way. As I've shared my personal story of how God healed me from the abuse I've experienced in my childhood from my father, she teared up and started to share her personal experience. She has shared that her narcissistic mother is still manipulating and abusing her and sometimes she wishes that her mother would be dead. But when she feels this she is overwhelmed with tremendous guilt. She really opened up as we've discussed how Jesus really heals our wounds and restores our relationships and walked through some of the passages from the Bible. At the beginning of our conversation she was a total anti-Christian, pro-abortion person. At the end of our conversation she was in tears as we've prayed for her at the airport. The gospel is truly the GOOD NEWS and the HEALING for all kinds of person and for all kinds of brokenness.
