Featured Missionary

walkerJohn-Mark and Meg Walker
Richmond, VA - U.S.

John-Mark and Meg minister at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, and will be helping to launch Cru at the University of Richmond. Classes have just resumed, which is a critical time for outreach to students, especially freshmen who are arriving on campuses for the first time. In the first days and weeks, choices freshmen make may set the course not only for their time in college but for the rest of their lives.

Additionally, John-Mark has taken on a new leadership role within Cru as the Cross-Cultural Training Coordinator for the area from Delaware through North Carolina. Half of his time will be spent on campus and half will be spent serving at both a regional and national level training and equipping staff and student leaders to engage well in crossing cultures. Meg writes, "Already motivated personally to study topics of culture, justice, and evangelism, he now gets a chance to be a voice in our organization to help others engage well with those around them and show the love of Jesus more significantly in the world we live in."

Prayer Requests:
1. For John-Mark in his new leadership role as Cross-Cultural Training Coordinator for their region.
2. For outreach to students at universities in Richmond.
3. For John-Mark and Meg’s family as they welcomed baby John Webster on August 17th.
