Finding the Father

Edith and her daughter.

When Charlie started kindergarten, Jessica, a Cru staff member, didn’t know a soul at his school. She looked for ways to meet people and kept running into Edith. Edith was also looking for insight into her oldest child’s new world. She became Jessica’s first “mom friend” at the school.

Fast forward six years. Edith accepted an invitation to a weekly NBS2GO Bible study in Jessica’s living room. NBS2GO stands for “Neighborhood Bible Studies 2GO.”

NBS2GO exists to “equip and encourage you to reach the people around you, through unique 2GO Bible studies that are easy to facilitate with neighbors, co-workers, friends or family.”

Edith arrived 30 minutes early the first day because she wanted to ask what to expect. “I’ve never been invited to a Bible Study before,” she confided. Edith attended for a few months, but a work conflict got in the way.

Then Covid hit and Jessica moved the study online. Edith was able to rejoin the group. As they looked at scripture, Edith saw a more full picture of God. She had seen Him as a judge wanting to convict her and didn’t know of His fatherly love.

In the midst of Covid during that virtual study, Edith became a new person. Now she tells all her coworkers about this Father who loves her so much. She’s also been reading the Bible and praying with her daughters!

NBS2GO is just one of the many ministries that Nate and his team serve through managing Cru’s behind the scenes finances and processes. Thank you for your role in helping people know God as Father. You are making a difference in the world!
