Hello Friends & Family!
My Circuit Rider Training has been amazing! I have classes M-F in the morning with afternoon elective training courses. Wednesdays I am involved with campus outreach ministry on UCLA. We were able to go on a one-week mini-tour to Universities in Arizona in October. We led outreaches at GCU, ASU & Embry Riddle. At ASU I had the great privilege to personally lead someone to the Lord for the first time, and connect him to local campus ministry where he can be discipled and grow in his faith. This was an incredibly redeeming experience for me since the young man's name was Andrew, which as you may know was the name of my brother (Andrew/Drew Colton) who went to be with the Lord four years ago.
I am so excited to go on tour with the Circuit Riders this Spring to help lead outreaches on Univeristy Campuses across the USA. The Circuit Riders have been invited to bring our "Carry the Love" events to over 200 campuses this year! Each spring we are seeing hundreds of students come to the Lord through these outreaches. Last year alone, we held spontaneous baptisms in the school fountains as many students gave their lives to Christ. I had the opportunity to meet some of these new believers from all over the country when they came to Southern California last summer to attend CR's three week "21 Project." I can personally attest to the fact that students are genuinely coming to know the Lord and continuing to serve him through our "Carry the Love" events. A really awesome thing about our outreaches is the fact that we come to campuses (for FREE!) and put on an outreach while coordinating with all the Christian Groups on campus. We partner with Chi Alpha, Campus Crusade (CRU) Intervarsity, and other campus ministries around the country to help blanket each campus and create an outreach where students get connected to local ministries and where campus ministers get a huge "boost" from our presence to help them continue to reach their campus for Christ.
I cannot wait to be a part of this tour! I feel that we are reaching students right when they are really searching for meaning and purpose in life! I know this ministry had impacted my life greatly! I am currently in need of $1500 for my tour fees by December 15th so that I can go on tour. This will help to provide all the equipment, outreach fees, transportation and lodging for the tour from Feb-April. Please if you are able will you help me to continue to be a part of this ministry? Thank you so very much! We could not reach these campuses without your support!
