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 event on campus and she is so excited to lead her first core ever. I’m also excited to be leading with her this school year. This girl is so good at noticing people and making them feel loved and included.  As the school year starts she asks for peace with managing everything that's on her plate. 

Claire is such a gem! She might give you a million reasons why she’s very freaked out about leading a core this year but I know she’s going to absolutely be a great leader! She continually pushes herself to try new things that make her uncomfortable and I know that’s going to be so valuable to all the girls in her core to learn from her. She wants prayers for strength and courage this year! 

 Kiden has been so open and vulnerable with her life since day one. This is such a great quality for the Richland campus because most students can only be silly. I’m so excited that she is part of our team this year and we love to joke around about her core being a cry fest. Kiden is going to be a busy lady this week so her prayer request is that she is able to balance work, school, ministry, and everything that might pop up.
Javi has been in ministry since day one because her parents have led and worked for multiple ministries throughout the years and she is excited that she now gets to lead women and share Jesus with them. Everyone who meets her loves her because she is so warm and welcoming to all, she also isn’t afraid to challenge people to help them grow to be more like Jesus. Her prayer request is to grow in vulnerability especially in core. She also wants to grow in her knowledge of scripture alongside her co-leader Claire.
                    
A quick update on my time at UTD! This year our ministry at Richland has grown significantly which means I’ll be spending more of my weekly time on that campus, leading core, meeting with the women that lead and join our ministry. I will still be working some hours at UTD, meeting with returners and helping with leading 1:1 Bible Studies. I just wanted to let you all know because I bet my monthly blog will be filled with Richland updates. :)
Thank you so much for your prayers and financial support! I am so thankful and blessed by each of you. If there’s anything I could be praying for just let me know.


Your Campus Missionary,
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!
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…
