Serving the States ~ Join the CRU!

I know in my past blog posts I've been mentioning several volunteer opportunities locally and overseas, but I wanted to highlight a very special friend, Krysta Eagle, who has been making a difference in the students at Radford University's lives for the past few years.  I think back to my college days and wish I had someone like her in my life as a mentor, leader and counselor in Christ.

Who is Krysta?

Krysta Eagle is a missionary with Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU) at Radford University. Krysta attended Radford and was involved with the ministry throughout her college career. In December 2008, she graduated from RU with a Bachelor's Degree in Design, emphasis in Interiors, and felt called to go on staff with Crusade.

About Krysta's Ministry

As a full-time missionary on Radford University's campus, Krysta's week consists of leading a senior and freshman women's Bible study, mentoring women on campus, supervising student leadership for Campus Crusade's large group meetings, meeting with staff and with interns and 15 hours of her time each week is spent in outreach on campus. She also accompanies students to several conferences during the school year. 

Here is a newsletter she provides her sponsors monthly to give you an idea of what she does:

How Can You Support Her Ministry?

Krysta needs to raise funds in order to continue her mission with CRU.  These funds cover her salary, activities, etc. while she is on campus.  She is currently back home raising support, meeting with potential donors and friends who would like to know more about what she does while at Radford.  Currently, she has reached 61% of her goal, so she needs help! 

If you would like to support her ministry the Campus Crusade for Christ website is easy and allows you to setup donations anywhere from one-time gifts, monthly donations that automatically withdrawal from your bank account, etc.  You can also include a personalized note to Krysta :)  Click HERE to donate to Krysta's ministry online.
