Support Letter 2014

Dear family and friends,

Hello! I hope all is well with you all and you are staying warm in this frigid weather! My second semester as a junior here in Stevens Point has quickly become very busy. As all of you may know, last summer I was in Juneau, Alaska with a campus ministry I am involved in called Cru. Cru, (http:campuscrusadeforchrist.com) is a worldwide ministry on college campuses that seeks impacting college students for Christ daily. Through Cru, the Lord continues to bless me with a community full of brothers and sisters in Christ who truly want to impact the world for the Lord. Last summer, I was given an amazing opportunity to be in Juneau, where I was able to grow tremendously in my faith, gain new, unforgettable, life experiences and friendships, impact Juneau through Christ, and grow more into the women Christ desires me to be. Impacting the community of Juneau for Christ, has truly stolen my heart hence, why I am writing to you today.

I have been asked by the staff of the Juneau Summer Project to go back to Juneau this summer as the Women's Project Director. Through this amazing experience, I will be on a team of about seven male staff members and five women staff members to lead approximately 16 women and 20 men students in Juneau, Alaska, Juneau Summer Project. Last year, I went to Juneau as a student and I would have never guessed I would be back in Juneau as a staff member. To be completely honest I am very intimidated and excited by this role and responsibility, but I know the Lord will walk me through each step of this summer. I will be in Juneau from May 20 to July 5th, when staff leaves, we delegate students to lead for three weeks, then myself and the Men’s Project Director return to Juneau, July 31st through August 5th to debrief and close project. I am SO incredibly excited to be back in Juneau and see how the Lord pushes me this summer.

In order for me to be in Juneau this summer, I need to develop a team of ministry partners, which is a group of people, like you, who will pray for me and financially sponsor me as we go on this adventure. As you may imagine raising the funds will be a large step of faith for this summer, but I rest in Christ who is always faithful. I need to raise a total of $3,000 by May 15. This is my fundraising goal for the project fee, room and board, groceries, fundraising costs, and traveling. Would you prayerfully consider being a part of my team by giving a gift of $50, $100, $300 or more? Whatever amount the Lord leads you to give is the right amount to give.

All gifts are tax-deductible and checks can be written out to Campus Crusade for Christ. You can either give a check and mail it to me or give online! Giving online seems daunting but it really is not at all. Go to the website give.cru.org, search Lexi Collicott or my number #0683763, click on my name under staff members and click "give a gift". It is as simple as that! In order to know how close I am to reaching my goal, I will be in touch with you in a couple weeks or so, to see what you have decided and to answer any questions you may have!

More than any amount of money I need your prayers as I seek to follow the Lord by going to Juneau, Alaska. I am more than excited to serve Him this summer! Thank you for considering joining my team to help reach people for Christ in Juneau, Alaska this summer!

In Christ,

Alexis (Lexi) Collicott
