My friends,

It is Fall with a high of 90, happy November ya’ll!

Here’s what’s been going on in our neck of the woods this past month. God is continuing to build and grow our communities both at Richland and UTD and so many students are maturing in their faith. Thank you very much for all your support and please continue praying for the students in our ministry and our campuses.


This month’s student testimony is from one of my Richland favorites, Josh Erdmann! This guy is such joy to be around and makes our campus ministry so fun. He is one of those people that can strike a conversation with anyone which makes him so valuable to the Richland campus.



This semester I have also had the chance to do a 1:1 Bible study with Josh’s girlfriend Claire (love and obsessed with her) and this month I asked her how her relationship with Jesus has been impacted through Richland Focus and this was her response. “I finally am certain that I am a child of God and I have gained more of an understanding of what it looks like to be a disciple of Christ when I do ministry related things throughout the week.”

Here is the month in pictures :)

It was October so of course, some of the Richland ladies went to a pumpkin patch.

This is Summer, this semester we are studying the Bible together! 

Richland peeps bowling!

Stars game with our core! :)

This is Yatzel and me on Halloween! We meet every week to study the Bible. She's so cool and sweet! :) 

Our Church celebrated its 20th anniversary so we celebrated with a retreat! 

Richland Gals! :)

What would your tombstone say? At Richland we set up a table and asked the students walking by to write their epitaph. It was a very fun and thought-provoking event for our campus, a lot of neat conversations came from it.
 


Thanks a bunch for all your prayers, support and encouragements! Can't believe Thanksgiving is almost here. As always let me know how I can be praying for you.

In Christ,

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…
