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. :)

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!
Winter Camp
We are a week away from our annual winter retreat at Sky Ranch, woo! This year our camp theme will be Psalms! Throughout the weekend our sermons and worship will reflect the different themes of the Psalms. Be praying for our students. For safety driving to Sky Ranch, for attentiveness during sermons (open hearts and open minds), pray that new friendships will be built and that they look out for people, pray that the Spirit will refresh them and that the students will be excited and ready to serve their college campuses. We don't want money to ever be the reason why students don't come to camp so please be praying for our Richland students! 

New Decade

We are now 9 days into the new year. Hopefully you are still going strong in all of your New Year's Resolutions! If you're so over all the new decade jokes and comments I'm sorry but NOT because I have been reflecting some on the new decade. Ten years ago I was a lost freshman at UNT looking for lov…
Hi friends! 

Richland Update.
We are in our final week of "regular" class. Finals start next week, is that not so wild?! This semester has flown by! We have our Christmas Party and last Thursday Night Thunder of the semester this Thursday. We have requested school funding for Winter Camp 2020 in January, please join me in praying for the Richland staff that will be approving our money request. Camp cost is $125/person, this is a lot of money for our students and the school giving us funds will help bring the cost down significantly per student. We won't let anyone miss camp because they don't have the money to attend but having a lower price is a great incentive. 

The month of November our ministry went over the book of Ephesians. A big need we see in our community is that our students don't spend much time reading and studying scripture. For our Thursday nights we took time to read through entire chapters out loud to each other. We would then have discussion questi…
