While at staff conference, I got to meet and visit with Dutch and German Cru staff members. It was fun to hear about what God is doing in their countries. Students are learning more about him all the time! Here Heiko speaks about his experience in the Netherlands.

For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.” —Jesus. (Mark 8:34-35)
