Hi Friends!

I can’t believe April is already here, so much happened this past month and I’m so excited to get to share the cool things the Lord has been up to.

Spring Showcase

Thank you all that were able to come to Spring Showcase this past weekend to help send our students to SICM this May! I mentioned in my last blog how each year we invite several students from our ministries to a ministry conference in Washington state, Spring Showcase is our annual fundraiser to cover all expenses to send our students on this conference. This year we are sending over 80 students to this conference and Spring Showcase helped with getting the funds to do that!

We are excited to send this group of potential leaders to SICM, as this conference approaches please be praying that the Lord will use this week-long training to get all of the students attending excited about campus ministry!

Spring Showcase was so fun, so many incredible performances and art from talented people in our community, here are some pictures from the night. If you didn't get to come to the show and you are interested in giving you still can here.

This group performed Trashin' the Camp from the movie Tarzan. I was so excited that this was happening on stage! 

Student Spring Impact (SSI)

Each year we have a group of students from Washington that come to Texas during Spring Break to do outreach at our campuses. We had a group of 12 come this year to our Dallas campuses, and every day from 11-5 they engaged students in spiritual conversation. During the week we would send people out and pairs and they would go up to students asking them for prayer or just getting to know them. I was so encouraged to see new faces come and play games with our ministry.

Here is our Washington SSI team! :)

Spring Break

This year I got to visit New Orleans with some of my girlfriends, I had never been to Louisiana and it was so cool getting to spend a couple of days exploring the city and eating good food. During our time there we got to visit the Whitney Plantation and learn about a German immigrant family and the slaves they brought with them. Getting to visit this plantation was so eye-opening and emotional, it was very touching getting to take a small glimpse of this time in history and the lives of many that were oppressed.

  • The end of the semester is approaching. Please be praying our students finish well in their classes, core and 1:1’s. It’s easy to lose steam at this point of the school year be praying that they don’t lose stamina. 

  • My brother and sister-in- law will are welcoming a baby girl this month. Pray for both of them and baby Zoe, that we have a healthy baby and healthy mom as the due date approaches and after. We are so excited to have a new member to our family. I’m especially thrilled to get to be an aunt! 

Thank you for your prayers and support! You have such an important role in what God is doing at UTD and Richland and I am thankful for your partnership.

Your sister,

Sandra Salvador


  1. Hosting the SSI students and watching them devote their spring break to reaching out to students is such a joy and an encouragement. I'm so glad you got to work with the team at UTD and Richland and be a part of some spiritual conversations. I am definitely excited about sending our students to SICM in Washington so they can see that community that cares so much about us.

    Also, you're gonna be an auntie! Hooray! So exciting!!

    Love you Sandra!

Hey friends! 

I apologize for being MIA last month. The busiest time of the school year for ministry is now over and now I get the chance to update you on all of the cool things that are going on at Richland. Be prepared for lots of pictures!

Our Cores

Cores are our ministries small groups that meet throughout the week on the Richland campus. In core we study the Bible, build deep relationships, and invite students from our campus to come join us. This year I get to lead with one of my favorite girls Kobloh-Obase or KB for short. :) This is KB’s first year leading in any sort of ministry role but you wouldn’t even know if you saw her lead, she is such a natural! KB is so good at reaching out to people, making them feel loved, and she is just so fun. I love getting to co-lead core with her. We are a few weeks into core and it’s so exciting getting to see friendships being formed. The girls come each week ready to talk about Jesus and share their lives with another. We usually tend to star…
Hey team!I can’t believe the school year is officially over. What a year! This past week has been full of end of the year festivities, encouragements, and even some tears. As I reflect back on the past school year, God has been so sweet to me and our ministries. This year has been one of tremendous growth for our staff, our leader team, and our student body.
I asked three Richland ladies the following “How has God been faithful to you this school year?” I was so encouraged by their responses that I wanted to share them with you! Side note: They were so excited to be featured in this months ministry blog.This is Reni! I get to meet with Reni weekly to study the Bible. She is a deep-thinker, honest, and has such a hunger to get to know more of Jesus. She is also an amazing singer!
“God has been so faithful to me this school year. He has always been with me but starting college I never felt more blessed in my relationships with my professors and companions and even my school work. God has…
Hey friends! I can't believe we are only a few days away from the first day of school! This summer has been great and all but I am definitely SO ready to be back on campus a lot more and I’m especially excited to meet new students. We still have so much to do as a team before classes begin. In the next few days we will be nailing down our student leader team for both Richland and TWU Dallas. We have so many great students that we are considering for leadership this year and being a corefa is a big commitment, pray for the staff as we have these final conversations but also for the students as they consider whether to lead for the school year or not. 
GO THUNDERDUCKS! The first week of school at Richland College we are on campus five days away for long hours meeting students, playing games, telling them about our ministry, setting up time with those students throughout the week and it can be a long and exhausting week. Every year is the same and every year I forget to spend time pra…
