My family moved to Georgia in 2014 when I was 12 years old. I quickly jumped into the youth group as a 6th grader at Grace. Currently, I am entering my senior year at UGA where I serve in leadership with Cru's International Student Ministry. This summer, I have the privilege to serve with Cru in a greater capacity overseas. I will be traveling with students from different universities in the United States to South Asia (for safety reasons we are not allowed to disclose the exact location) for around 5 weeks!! While we are there, we will be working on a college campus while focusing our efforts on building relationships and spreading the love of Christ while also growing in our own faith and trust in Him. While I am serving overseas, I would love to have the Grace church family praying for me. I am leaving on June 4th and will return on July 9th. I would love to talk with anyone who is interested or answer any questions anyone may have about the trip!

When asked about what motivated him to become involved in the Cru International Student Ministry, Jono replied, "Growing up in a home where traveling the world was a common occurrence has shaped my worldview today. I love experiencing different cultures, meeting new people, and sharing love with those around me. While at UGA, God has opened many doors for me to build relationships and share Christ with international students on campus. "

This Sunday, as a church family, we will have the opportunity to pray for Jonathan before he heads out.
