Happy Summer, my friends!

We are halfway through the year, how did that sneak up on us? This Summer has been such a great time catching up with friends, donors, and students. If I didn’t get a chance to catch up with you in June, you will be hearing from me soon. :)

We are only half way through Summer but it’s already so filled with so many memories. Here are a couple of things I have been up to since the end of the school year.

Corefa Selection: Each Summer we spend time selecting student leaders to volunteer their time to lead small groups on the college campus. For an entire school year, these students commit over 10 hours to serving students on their campus and sharing Jesus with them. Pray for the Dallas team as we have these conversations with students and pray for boldness as the students decide to step up and serve their campus. Every year we have students that are excited to lead, pray this year that excitement will continue!

Planning for the School Year: This Summer our staff also prays and decides on a sermon series for our fellowship nights. The theme for this school year is “ALL IN” we chose this because we want it to encompass a couple of things for our community. First, we want to call our students to be people that are all ALL IN for Jesus, meaning that we want all aspects of their lives to reflect Him and to only be obedient to Him. Secondly, we want the theme to reflect that all nations, tribes, language are also God’s people.

Another sweet thing about this Summer is that I have gotten the chance to see so many of my favorite people get married! The weekends have been busy with the weddings but it has been an absolute joy getting to attend and celebrate with them! :)

Thank you so much for everything that you do! As always, I’m so thankful for your prayers and support. If there’s anything I can be praying for please let me know.

Your campus missionary,

Sandra Salvador

Sweet Richland at Sirak's wedding. 

Love getting to work with Sirak. His wedding was so sweet and I'm so excited for him and Sloan.

Dawn and I took a weekend trip to visit some of our UTD girls in Austin.

I look crazy, but we celebrated Darby (the red-haired girl in the back) getting married with some laser tag and dinner. :)

My friends,I wanted to take some time to show you the girls that I will be meeting with weekly this school year. All of these girls are going to be student leaders (CoreFa’s) serving the Richland College campus this year. I’m so excited and blessed to spend time with each of these ladies. They each gave me a prayer request for you all as they kick off the school year!
Catherine is a returning corefa this school year, which means she’s a pro at it. This is my third year meeting with Catherine and it has been so neat watching her grow in her love for Jesus and in her confidence to lead Richland women in their spiritual walk. She’s so good at making others feel important! Catherine’s prayer request is that everyone who walks into the Richland Focus ministry feels loved and valued as she has. She also wants to grow in her love for people by letting them into her relationship with Jesus.

Ann is one of the funniest people to be around! Ann actually got involved through a volleyball outreach e…
Hey Friends!We are halfway there! How?!This past month we had our very first Richland Fall Camp and it was such a blast! We packed 24hrs with worship, Jesus, hot chocolate and a lot of Dutch Blitz (my new obsession). For the past couple of years, the Richland ministry has been very close-knitted to the UTD community and we have been very used to having Fall Camp with them. It was definitely a little intimidating planning and having our own weekend but we felt that it was time for our ministry to have their own camp. I’m so thankful we did because it brought our Richland community closer together. Giving you a play by play of the weekend would take too long but here are some highlights of our weekend together. For our first session, we kicked off the weekend by hearing from three of our leaders as they shared how community has impacted their lives and where they think they would be if they had not found a Jesus-centered community. Listening to them was such a testament to what God has…
