When God says Go – to Detroit

I first discovered Cru through some friends at Indiana University of Pennsylvania during my freshman fall semester, and through that, I decided to go to the regional winter conference. That’s where I was first introduced to summer projects and where I rededicated my life to Christ. When I went back to school, the opportunity of [...]

From an ordinary kid to a missionary going where God leads

I found myself in East Asia because that is where God called me to be. Three years ago I was a somewhat scared, somewhat cocky, high school senior in Wisconsin getting ready to begin college at the University of Montana.

“From a Difficult Start to a Clear Vision”

From as early as I can remember, my Mom was a substance abuser. As time went on I (Sean, pictured left) fell in love with school because there I could find friends, loving teachers, and I could perform well enough to get everyone’s approval. At the end of 8th grade, my mom’s addiction began to [...]
