Greece Summer Missions Project Support Letter

I want to bring you up to date with what is happening in my life. I am now
finishing up my sophomore year at Fort Lewis College. I'm taking a full schedule of classes (17hours), which keeps me pretty busy. When I'm not in class, I am spending my time being involved with our non-denominational Christian ministry on campus. 

The ministry I'm involved with is Master Plan Ministries (MPM) which is affiliated with Campus Crusade for Christ. The MPM staff were some of the very first people I met at Fort Lewis. They challenged me to use my time in college to grow spiritually and they also invested in me individually to do so.

Serving in this ministry and spreading the love of Jesus Christ has become my greatest passion. The more I serve others and the more I serve God, the clearer it is to me that I want to live a life wholly for God. There have been several opportunities put in place to grow me in this area. I have lead two bible studies this year, practiced public speaking, and spiritually mentored a couple guys.

Now, an unbelievable opportunity has come up! I get to go to Greece on a summer project sponsored by Campus Crusade. With support, I will be going to Greece May 23- June 30. There I will mix it up with Greek university students on campus and in coffee shops at the foot of the Acropolis. I will build relationships while at the same time be looking for opportunities to share Christ. There are also compassion ministries to the homeless Albanian refugees in the city I will be serving with.

A summer spent on something like this is invaluable. Few other environments can top this in developing spiritual leadership and ministry skills to equip me and others for campus outreach and ministry after college.

Greece summer project will be such a blessing to attend. In order to make this possible I need to develop a team of ministry partners... a group of people like you to give to make my trip possible. I need to raise $5,600 by May 16. This is a great opportunity for me to truly trust God. This cost includes: housing, meals, transportation, training materials, etc.

I wrote out this letter to ask you; Will you prayerfully consider partnering with me and joining my team by giving $100, $200, $300, or more? Of course, whatever amount the Lord leads you to give is the right amount.

All gifts to Campus Crusade for Christ are tax-deductible. You can give a gift on a secure internet account here: . Also, Checks can be made out to Campus Crusade for Christ (memo: Brandon Cox Greece). You can send them to:

Contact me at or if you are interested in joining my support team or if you have any questions. 

More than anything, I need your prayers as I seek to follow the Lord by participating in this summer project.

Thank you for considering joining my team to help reach people for Greece.

Thank you,
Brandon Cox
