IUP Spring Break Trip to Detroit (I drove a minivan all week!)

Some Things Never Change

Yes, it is true, “some things never change”, however many things do. If you may remember in my last prayer letter, I wrote about how excited I was about this summer and co-leading the Providence Summer Mission. Well, while I am still very excited for this summer, it won’t be in Providence. Through a lot of prayer and deliberation, my co-leaders and I made the difficult decision to cancel this summer's Providence trip. The main reason was we simply didn’t have enough students. As I mentioned in my last letter, one of the greatest blessings on Summer Missions is getting to do life in a community of fellow believers. So we’ve decided to help students find other summer missions with more students where they can really thrive and grow surrounded by other believers. 

For me, this means I will be spending the summer on a different summer mission at… Hampton Beach, New Hampshire! Similar to the Providence trip, Hampton Beach Summer Mission is focused on helping students grow in their faith, while serving and sharing God’s love with the local community (one of the least Biblically minded places in the US). As a staff member, I will get to disciple and equip our students, while also being built up myself. Loneliness has been a struggle for me on Cru staff. While my boss is great, it’s hard being part of a campus staff team of two. In addition, I was not able to meet and grow with other staff in person at New Staff Orientation or in any of my classes (thanks Covid). The Lord is answering my prayers for staff community though, and I get to spend this summer alongside 13 of my staff friends! 

While I now know where I will be this summer, my co-leaders and many of our students don’t. Please pray for us as we help each other find the right fit for this summer. As one student said when we told her the Providence Summer Mission was canceled, “The plan that the Lord has is the best plan. All we can do is trust that God is working and has something great planned for us either way.” She is so right. Some things do indeed “never change”. Even if it feels like everything else around us changes we can hold tight to our never changing Father in Heaven and His promises. He is good. He’s in control. He’s got this. 



What is the top prize for Hampton Beach’s annual sand sculpture contest?

A) A high five           B) $50, 000           C) A million dollars


(Answer will be in next month’s prayer letter :) )

Noah (my boyfriend) and I reunited after spending three weeks, multiple time zones and an ocean apart. Thank you for praying for our Spring Break trips and all the Cru trips to Detroit, the Middle East, and Puerto Rico! God did some awesome things, feel free to reach out to hear more!


Believe it or not the semester is almost over. We are wrapping up with Bible studies, large group, discipleship, etc. Please pray for students and staff, that we’re able to “”finish well” as we transition to summer.
