Some of the students we graduated from IUP Cru

April Happenings (2022)

Remember Me (song from Disney’s Coco)

Three years and eight months ago, I knew this was going to be one of the hardest, yet most joyful, letters I would write during my staff career so far. It is always bittersweet sending our graduating students on to what the Lord has for them next. While graduation has been hard in the past, this graduation is especially so. That is because August 27th, 2018  was not just my first day on Cru staff, but also our current graduating students' first day of college. We got to experience IUP together. A large part of my job is spent preparing and equipping students to continue sharing and growing in their faith after they graduate. This was my first time seeing our students all the way through from day one of their freshman year to graduation. And while it’s so hard to see them go, I’m so grateful for the memories that the Lord has given us and for the ways He has blessed me through these students. I have been writing to you about these students for as long as you have been on my team (thank you for your partnership!) and now we, as a ministry team, get to send them together. One might say it’s the end of an era! It is also the beginning of a new one. It is time for these seniors to leave the nest and move on, but it’s also time for a new group of students to take their place. That is the beauty of campus ministry. Every spring, we say goodbye to beloved seniors, but every fall we say hello to friendly new faces. Please join me in praying for our seniors heading out and for our new students coming in! I am so excited to see what God has in store for the Class of 2022, Class of 2026, and all the classes in between!

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

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


The answer is “D) None of the above” - I apologize, I was looking at a faulty source 😅 The correct answer is $6,000. 


It’s summer time! I am officially transitioning to summer mission mode and preparing for Hampton Beach. Please join me in praying for the students coming to Hampton beach and for our students’ summers, wherever they go.
