Craig Drissa Meeting

Drissa* might seem an unlikely evangelist. He grew up Muslim.

In the spring of 2017 Cru staff members hosted a training for Ivory Coast student volunteers. One day training attendees were seeking students excited to introduce others on their campuses to Jesus.

They met Drissa and learned he had recently become a Christian, although he wasn’t yet active in his faith. They challenged him to find a Christian mentor—introducing him to Craig, a Cru staff member—and to reach his campus for Jesus.

The past two years Drissa has tracked his own spiritual impact on his Ivory Coast university. Recently, he recorded the following stats for a two week period:

  • Students challenged to more involvement —27
  • Yes to coaching—3
  • Yes to Bible Study—5
  • Went to Bible Study—3
  • Heard the gospel—3

Not content to simply look back, Drissa also wrote the following goals:

  1. Start 2 new Bible Studies.
  2. Challenge 20 students to evangelism training.
  3. Share gospel with 10 more students.

Drissa was just baptized this past Easter!

Your partnership enables us to serve Cru staff like Craig as they coach students like Drissa. You are making a difference in the lives of students all around the world! Thank you!
