Posted onJune 16, 2014 | by: Seth Carter | 0 comments

Sorry folks. It is late Sunday and I just got access to the internet. I'll send you some journal reports today and try to get pictures later. I'm writing this to you at night overlooking Montego Bay lit up by all the house and city lights along the shore and mountainside, and hearing Jamaican music blaring from different houses surrounding us. Here we go!...Keep Reading

Peavy Prayer Letter - June 2014

Posted onJune 5, 2014 | by: James Peavy | 0 comments

These last few months have been quite busy. We have appreciated all the prayers, calls, and cards we have received. Now we are beginning to get into the swing of deputation with a new baby. Our latest trip has taken us to Central Florida. We have enjoyed fellowship with several different churches. Worshiping with fellow believers and sharing with them our burden for Australia is always a fun experience. We especially enjoyed being a part of a Word of Life Teen meeting at Northside Baptist in Lakeland. James and I have such a heart for teens that any opportunity to interact with them or minister to them is such a blessing....Keep Reading

CRU Update - May 2014

Posted onMay 14, 2014 | by: Ashely & Heather Holleman | 0 comments

One of our top priorities this year has been to develop some "bread-and- butter" tools that would help us and other Faculty Commons staff around the country have more frequent, higher quality and more satisfying gospel conversations with professors. One of the tools we have been working on is an interview. It is designed to help staff easily meet professors they don't know and get to know their world and life better. It gives us a truly legitimate and winsome reason to knock on the door of a professor we don't know (we knock if the door is already open), to introduce ourselves to them, and to ask them for ten minutes of their time for an interview we are conducting. The interview includes a few questions about the spiritual side of their life and work. So, it also gives us an opportunity to have gospel conversations in the future with them if they are interested....Keep Reading

We trust that you had an awesome time reflecting over the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ this Easter. The resurrection is a constant reminder to us that God is renewing His creation and that He is calling individuals to participate in that renewal through the Gospel! Hallelujah!...Keep Reading

James and Lauren Peavy - Spring 2014

Posted onMarch 29, 2014 | by: James Peavy | 0 comments

It is with great heaviness of heart that I try to share with you the events that have taken place over the past few months. As many of you know, three years ago Lauren’s father was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. Since that time he had been undergoing treatment regularly, but in the middle of January the doctors knew that the chemotherapy was no longer going to work and treatment was stopped....Keep Reading

Crossworld Winter 2014 Update

Posted onFebruary 28, 2014 | by: Dan & Donna Standridge | 0 comments

“Progress” is the word that best describes our life here! Given that we were in the States for about 5 months in 2013, the 20% increase in attendance at “The Radice” church is progress. It speaks of how well the leadership is doing. Many seekers who have visited our services are now part of our church. One man who had to undergo cancer surgery in January is telling all who will listen, “I’ve always been terrified of doctors and being sick. Being a nurse, I tried to bring comfort to patients because I was so afraid of death. But since I gave my life to Jesus I’ve had so much peace. My life and future are in His hands. I can’t say thank you enough for showing me Jesus!”...Keep Reading

Hesman Herald - December 2013

Hot and cold...sunshine and snow...such a contrast between two "worlds." We flew from a warm summer in South Africa to the snow in Washington DC! We arrived in a snow storm a little over a week ago and drove down to Martinsville...arriving at Penny's parents' home at 1:30 in the morning! It was a long day! God was gracious, the weather was a bit treacherous but we arrived without incident....Keep Reading

CRU Update - December 2013

We hope you were encouraged after reading in our last prayer letter how the Lord is moving among professors and grad students here at Penn State. As we shared last month, the Lord is giving us opportunities as a team to impact many more professors and grad students than we have in the past. However, it is simply not about the numbers. It never is. It's about individual lives. It's about one person seeing his life captured and transformed by Christ and then seeing that happen again and again in many people's lives. In fact, here are the stories of two people where God has been working powerfully this past semester....Keep Reading
