This was our family outing last Friday. A short fun little bike ride in a regional park about 15 minutes from our house. One of the neat things about where we live is that we can be at the beach within 30 minutes but we can be hiking or biking in the foothills within 10 minutes. Very cool.

If you have an iPhone, you can now download a cool application that has just been developed and released by Campus Crusade. It’s called “God Tools” and it is an application that has “The Four Spiritual Laws” booklet, the “Would you Like to Know God Personally” booklet and a couple of other spiritual tracts. In addition, there is a link to many popular articles from our everystudent.com website.

You can check it out by searching “God Tools” from your iPhone App application.

Right away, she got involved in a Bible study with some other freshman girls that helped her to grow in her new faith. By the time she was a senior, Patricia was leading a freshman Bible study herself!
So there I was, staring at a huge LCD flat screen monitor on the wall that displayed in bright colors a map of the entire world. Every few seconds, a small flag would pop up with the name of a different country, indicating that someone from that country had either visited one of our websites, indicated a decision for Christ or requested follow-up of some kind.
