Serving in CRU Together

Wedding Parter
Fourteen years ago, and 112 prayer letters before this one, I, Holly, joined staff with Cru, formally known as Campus Crusade for Christ. This journey is one I never want to walk away from. I’ve seen a vampire come to Christ, a madam come to Christ, and hundreds of others come to Christ when I served overseas in East Asia. I’ve gotten to disciple women at UC Berkeley, mentor staff women in the middle east and train professors how to share their faith on campus. I’ve had the joy of taking teams on mission trips to London, China, and Egypt. Now I’m writing a book on evangelism that will be published by Regal Books this coming summer! This journey has been quite the adventure. Many of you have been with me from the beginning and have seen this journey play out. Without your prayers and financial support, I would never have been able to see what God would do with my life.
Today begins a new adventure as Matt and I have recently united in marriage as well as ministry. Though serving together in Cru, our ministries will look different. Matt will be serving on our Operations Team in the office. He is a skilled videographer and video editor. This is a needed expertise as videos are what promote our mission conferences, mission trips, as well as train our students in ministry. Matt will have a vital role in training students and staff through videos he films and edits. I will continue to serve as the campus field national director training our team leaders, visiting campuses, and ministering to our staff.
Our current focus is meeting with people to share about our ministry, inviting them to partner with us through prayer and financial support. Also, I’m writing chapters of my book each morning. The title will be, “Follow My Lead: Responding to God’s Voice in Everyday Encounters.”
Thank You from the Meltons!!!
Please pray for us as we step out in faith in both of these areas. Please pray we learn how to live life together and serve the Lord together as a newly married couple.
Thank you for you commitment to us and to the Great Commission. You are truly a part of changing lives!
