By Jeff Graham “Thank you Lord for life!" This is a common opening for prayers from Catholic Ugandan students, according to CCO staffer Ben Turland. Turland was part of a CCO delegation that headed to Uganda to help with continuing efforts to train students in evangelization and leadership development. CCO has been visiting the African country since 2010. CCO founder Andre Regnier has visited at least six times personally. According to Turland, the trips have born tremendous fruit.

Braving arduous multi-day journeys by train, members of Jesus Youth from across India welcomed members of Catholic Christian Outreach to India as part of an informal gathering to discuss faith and outreach.

I took the Discovery faith study and...

After my conversion at the end of my first year of university, things began to change as I started to make room for God in my life. It was no longer about what I wanted, or what I thought others expected from me. I started asking God what He wanted me to do with my life. In my second year of university I was able to live out my faith, but I started to question whether what I was doing made any difference in the world. All of my time was spent in the gym (playing on the university’s volleyball...

In the summer of 2009 I went on a mission project put on by Catholic Christian Outreach called Impact. The purpose of this mission project was to lead people into a personal relationship with Our Lord Jesus. As the summer progressed I had the opportunity to share my faith with a number of people and tell them about God’s love and mercy. That summer I witnessed many conversions and lives changed. As I witnessed the fruit of this mission my heart was stirred up with a strong missionary zeal. This experience helped me realize what my identity truly is as...
