We arrived home from Colorado on Sunday after a tiring but rewarding summer. The conference was great, with opportunities to hear from our Cru leadership and gifted guest speakers. On the right, Cruâ€™s president Steve Douglass is addressing a packed audience in Moby arena. I (Karl) really value the combination of vision-casting and teaching.
A highlight was Alistair Beggâ€™s messages from the book of Jude. His encouragement to stand strong in the faith and â€œkeep onâ€ was inspiring. You can watch the sessions online at csu2013.cru.org â€“ click on â€œArchivesâ€ at the top. Some of the videos are available only to Cru staff, but many are free for anyone to watch.
The Conference Team
It was my privilege to lead a wonderful team who served the technical needs of the conference and the attendees (bottom picture). Many people expressed their appreciation for the help that we were able to give them. This year we provided two â€œPower Barsâ€ where people could charge their phones and get technical questions answered.
Liesl served as needed and helped during several registration days. On the big one we checked in more than 3000 people.
Thank you for your prayers and gifts that made this summer possible!
