The fall semester is just around the corner! Soon so many freshman and transfer students will be stepping onto to the UTD and Richland campus for the first time. Our staff is so excited to get the school year started and we are currently working on building our student leader team for the 2017-2018 school year. The students on leader team volunteer 15+ hours to campus ministry - leading small groups, having 1:1 bible studies and doing outreach on campus. Be praying as we put together our leader team and pray for a restful summer because the first couple of weeks of school will be very busy and exhausting!
Every Thursday night this summer all of our FOCUS ministries come together to worship, learn, and fellowship together. This summer the staff have been preaching sermons on relating to God and I am just blown away by all the great ministers I get to call my co-workers. This past week Brandon delivered a message on loving the word of God. I was so challenged to look at my personal relationship with the scriptures, how I approach them and apply them to my ministry. I would encourage you to give this sermon a listen and the past ones as well. You can find them here. We only have a few summer meetings left for the semester be praying for our last few meetings of the summer.
I am currently at about 80% of my fundraising goal, please be in prayer for this and that I get to 100% by the end of summer. I'm so thankful for your generosity that you have shown me. If you know of anyone that would be interested in getting a ministry support letter please let me know!
I’m so excited to get to do full-time ministry at UTD and Richland for the next year. Thank you so much for investing in this mission and for all of your prayers. I’m so pumped for next school year and for the lives of students that will be changed through campus ministry!
Love you guys!
Your Campus Missionary,
