The Lord's right hand is lifted high; the Lord's right hand has done mighty things!
Virtual & Literal Realities...
Thank all of you who have been checking in on us this year. We have had the privilege of seeing many of you during these past many months via online or in person and it’s been such a joy to have eye to eye contact.
At the end of February Rick went to Orlando to assist Jesus Film Film Production with set design on a lighthearted short film for Josh McDowell's ministry on the subject of addiction. We are anxious to share with you as it's in the final editing stages.
THEN... the lockdown. This was definitely a re-set for us personally and are hopeful it was the same for you. Our Austin office closed in March, all collateral and videos for conferences, spring breaks, and mission trips was put on hold. The sudden turn of events took the wind out of our sails to just STOP in mid run. We then made a conscious decision to spend much of our time in the Word of God getting refreshed and built up for the unknown ahead of us. Sitting on our front porch and going for walks was so refreshing. We also got to know more neighbors and their pets!
During this time, our Creative One Media team was working towards going virtual since we are all over the nation. In May, that vision took place and the backlog of work began pouring in. We have been doing our best to respond to new opportunities with flexibility, innovation and enthusiasm. As a whole, Cru responded to the COVID-19 crisis by saying goodbye to most recent and traditional ways of doing ministry allowing us to pivot rapidly by utilizing more digital methods. This has resulted in seeing millions more exposures to the gospel! More on that soon.
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support this year. We have been able to get a lot accomplished to reach students in the name of Christ.
Some examples of what we've been up to in 2020.
Thank you for being such a vital role in sharing the Great Commission. You should have a link to our personal prayer requests. If you don't, contact us and we will send it.
