Bridges International is the international student ministry of Cru. It is a student organization that seeks to help international students through service activities, social networking, and spiritual resources. There are currently 1.3 million international students and scholars in the United States. The nations have indeed come to us. However, an estimated 80 percent never set foot in an American home. We seek to change that percentage. I am the national prayer coordinator and shepherd in prayer the nearly 325 staff members with the help of five regional prayer coordinators. I also write a weekly prayer bulletin that goes out to over 2,700 people.
Praise: For the growing number of Bridges staff members as well as student-led movements among internationals where we don’t have staff. Praise: For how God is moving among the Spanish-speaking people where Harriet lives, and the role she is able to play in that. Praise: For 45 years of missionary service.
Prayer: For stamina as Harriet gets older; that she will remember to slow down and know when to say no to some things. Prayer: For wisdom in writing a weekly prayer bulletin that is sent to over 2,700 prayer warriors. Prayer: For wisdom in recruiting other Bridges staff to help shepherd the nearly 325 Bridges staff in prayer.
