A Mother's Thank You:

From Colin's mother: (one of last year's fulltimers)

I just want to let you know what a fantastic time we had here this weekend with the group! Their presentations Sunday were led by the Spirit, and those young people shone for the Lord!

Host families have nothing but amazing things to say about them.....

Something unexpected happened to our family specifically, I want you to know about:

We knew what Colin was a part of last year, sure. And we appreciated it and were proud of him.

But, only after having the opportunity to see/hear another group without Colin were we able to truly appreciate the awesome ministry our son was a part of. It was so much easier for us to see what he did in other churches, etc when another team ministered to our church.
We found ourselves in tears, thanking God for what Colin was a part of....a year later!

So, anyway....if either team needs housing as they travel thru the country this year, please don't hesitate to give me a call!

Thank you all for obeying the Lord and sending these groups out. :-) ( and please hug our girls, Rachelle and Leslie for us when you next see them)

Thank You From a Ministry Partner

From Rockford Rescue Mission, one of our stateside ministry partners:

Dear Brothers and Sisters at CTI,

When your group was here on Jan. 8th, our Executive Director happened to overhear them practicing from her office upstairs. She inquired of me who this group was – she just knew they were different. After I informed her, she wanted to be sure we sent our big


Your ministry was a real blessing to us as you lifted up His Name and character in righteousness.

New CTI Album - "Stepping Forward"

Production on a new CTI album "Stepping Forward" is progressing quickly. It's exciting to watch as the album take shape.

It is our hope and prayer that this album will be more than a collection of music, but rather yet another avenue for our fulltime teams to encourage the church, challenge Christians to loving action, and share the hope of Christ with those who may not know him.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more information and samples of tracks as they are completed.

The CD is available for pre-order off the CTI website, and should ship sometime in mid-February
