Jersey Students Need to Go on Summer Missions
Summer missions with Cru might very well be one of the best opportunities a student can avail themselves to. You get to bring the message of Jesus to lost people all over the world. You get to take risks for Christ's sake. And you make lifetime friends during a 2-10 week life-shaking event.But don't take my word for it. Here are some first-hand accounts from Jersey students who went on summer missions in 2014.
"I recognized God as my faithful Provider in so many ways while on summer missions. Once, we got a flat while on our way to a game reserve, and at our chalets, there was a mechanic awaiting to help us! He provided in ways big and small."
- Tasha Jean-Baptiste | Kean Univ. | Botswana Summer Mission
"God was able to use me over the summer to share the gospel with many people. One person was an Chinese exchange student, who I was able to pray with!" - Chris-John Bosch | goes to NJIT | served with Hampton Beach Summer Mission
"I learned how important having Christian brothers and sisters are when you're pushed to your limits. Evangelizing and the community of believers made summer missions one of the best experiences I've ever had.
- Bethany Rose Newton | Kean Univ. | Hampton Beach Summer Mission
"It was absolutely amazing to partner with the students from Vida Estudiantil. It was a life changing experience sharing the gospel and watching the movement at [the local campus] grow."- Courtney Moglia | Montclair State | Dominican Republic Summer Mission
"I never imagined sharing the gospel with people in prison. What impacted me the most was seeing my knowledge of the gospel expand and seeing the hearts of real people being changed by King Jesus!"- Jeffrey Sanchez | Montclair State | Seattle Summer Mission
"To tell me that I would be on a plane to go outside of the country and evangelize for a summer, I would have never thought. It was an unforgettably positive experience to witness God work tremendously through people for His glory!"- Chinemenma Amonu | Rutgers New Brunswick | Dominican Republic Summer Mission
"God taught me to stop trying to take control of things. To be still and let Him work. To be patient and trust that He is working behind the scenes for me."
- Nicole Paiva | Kean Univ. | Chicago Summer in the City
"God used my summer mission to teach me to not lean on my own understanding, but to lean on His. When everything else around you seems to be failing, all you need to do is trust in The Lord."- Joe Angotti | Montclair State | Dominican Republic Summer Mission
"He showed me that no matter how many lies are thrown at me, that I can be assured by His Truth and find comfort in both Him and the amazing community of believers that He has placed in my life."
- Alexandra Mazyck | Monmouth | Hampton Beach Summer Mission
