We’re grandparents! Evelyn Lane Gulliver was born on August 3 at 9:27pm. She weighed 9lbs, 9oz and was 21.5 inches long. We feel so blessed to be sharing an apartment with Evelyn, Rachel, and Caleb. We love having her around all the time and being able to help her mom and dad. She’s doing well, and so are
Rachel and Caleb. Thank you for praying while Rachel was pregnant.
We just returned from our Cru NYC Metro Campus staff retreat. Robin picked out the location, planned all of the logistics for the conference, and even emceed one night. I’m handling all the finances for the retreat. We are praising God that we had almost double the people there that we had last year. A big focus of Cru has been to expand the ministry in NYC and we are seeing God’s hand at work in doing this. We are praying that next year’s staff retreat will be double the size of this year’s.
At the retreat, we spent time on team building since there were so many new people there, planning for the upcoming school year, and praising and worshiping the Lord. Please pray for our Cru teams as the school year begins.
Bridges, our Cru ministry to international students, has a number of things already planned for the fall. They have meetings listed in NYU’s and Columbia’s school event calendars to gather Christian international students. It will help them reach non-believing students if they can find Christian students to help draw others to investigative Bible studies. They also help the international students adjust to life in America and expose them to fun American things, like attending a Yankees game and picking apples. Robin and I will be helping with their student retreat and several events.
If you know a student attending college this fall, have them go to www.cru.org/locator/colleges.html to find Cru on their campus.
Thank you for your prayers for us, our family, and our ministry. We appreciate your partnership in helping NYC college students come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Steve & Robin
