The Singer's Score


    Matt is a sophomore that transferred to the University of North Dakota from Houston. When he arrived at UND one of the things that he wanted to do was meet some friends and get connected with people. After meeting a few of the students  involved with Cru, Matt decided to come to a weekly Cru meeting and see what it was all about. After attending and hanging out with some more students, they invited Matt to come to our men's Bible study kickoff on Wednesday nights and he came. As Matt has continued to attend different events he has met many students and become friends with them.  
     While all of this was happening, one of our student leaders, Tyler got to know Matt and began to ask him some spiritual questions to see what he believed. Matt responded saying that he isn't really sure about all of this spiritual stuff, but has made friends with students involved with Cru and so because of that he is going to continue to come and be a part Bible study and the weekly meeting. Over the last few weeks we have had the opportunity to share the Gospel with Matt in a variety of ways and he shared with us that he had never heard about how Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin or why Jesus would do that for us. Matt is still not completely sure about all of this, but continues to get more involved and is coming to our Fall Getaway that is happening October 5-7.  Please pray for Matt, that he would see his sin and his need for Jesus and that He would surrender his life to Christ.  
Your Partners in the Great Commission, 
Pray for Matt and other students like him as they explore God and the Bible.  Pray they would understand who Jesus, what he's done on their behalf, and that they would surrender their lives to him.

Our second cohort meeting in Rapid City, SD, was exciting! Many news things were learned and home work was given. Pray for the members as we work through this training and pray for everyone to be open to new approaches that it will bring forth. The third cohort will be held on January 12 at Lake Poinsett, south of Watertown, SD.
