The month of January has been so fun and God-filled, I’m excited to let you in on all the cool things that are happening in our ministry.
This past month we had our annual Winter Camp at Sky Ranch, this is a weekend for all our FOCUS ministries to come together and worship, learn and have fun as a community. This year was a blast and we had over 600 people attend, thank you so much for your prayers! This camp we got to hear from different staff in our community and they got to speak to our students about topics such as the remnant, the family of God, the temple of God, work and vocation and more. All through the weekend and coming back from camp I kept hearing how blessed our students felt by certain messages. We are truly so blessed to have people in our community that are not just talented speakers but people who live their lives fully for Jesus.
This weekend was such a blessing to me as well. I got to spend more time with girls from our Richland ministry (one of the campuses I work at), I got to see some of my favorite people from UNT and other campuses as well, I also got to rejuvenate before heading back to our college campuses.

This semester I will be co-leading a core (our small group) at Richland with one of our student leaders. I’m so excited to be more involved in our women’s ministry this school year and also I just love getting to be part of core! This campus is not always the easiest when it comes to getting people excited about Jesus but we have had several student that have been coming consistently and faithfully. Be praying that God will open up doors to get more involved on this campus and that students will have open minds and open hearts to the Gospel.

With a start of a new semester we had a rush of transfer students, we have had new people come visit our Friday night fellowship nights and our cores. Be praying that these students go wherever God is calling them even if is isn’t our campus ministry!
Here are some things to be praying for
- Weddings, wedding, weddings - many couples in our community are getting hitched this month, please be praying for these couples in their soon to be marriages.
- A girl I meet up with weekly named Melissa is graduating soon and currently internship/job hunting, be praying that God opens doors and to make this process as stress-free as possible.
- Pizza Theology, this semester we will be having a five hour seminar titled “Let’s Talk About Race” with all the tension that surrounds this topic, as our staff prepares for this talk, be praying that we speak Godly truths and challenges to our community. I’m looking forward to this talk and would love to invite you to attend. More info and sign-up here https://anyfocus.org/events/pizza/ .
Here is our student testimony by one our UTD student leaders.
I seriously can not thank you enough for your faithfulness and support to me and this ministry. I hope that you feel encouraged by the work God is doing on all of our campuses. There are so many stories for me to write about, so don’t hesitate to call me or e-mail me to chat even more. As always, if there is anything I can be praying for let me know!
