Hi Friends,

I usually send my ministry update later in the month but I’ll be in Washington state for SICM in just a few days and I won’t be able to send my blog out during the conference.  

SICM (Student Institute of Campus Ministry)

If you’ve been on my team for a long time or if you were ever in FOCUS you’re probably very familiar with SICM. The Collin, SMU and Richland ministries had to skip the May conference and this will be the first year a big group of us attends the June SICM. This year, I’ll be driving with three people from Dallas to Bellingham, we start our journey this Monday (6/10). As a student, SICM was very transformative for me because it gave me tools on how to be a missionary on my college campus as a student. It also made ministry and not so scary thing. I have seen SICM also be transformative to many of our college students, please be in prayer not only for our drive to Bellingham but for the week of the conference. Pray that our students hearts grow in their love for Jesus and His people. Pray that they stay awake, because SICM days are long and loaded with good information!

Summer FOCUS

As a staff, our hope and prayers are that our college students would not be in college forever. And one thing we want to help our students with is transitions, specifically concerning transitions after college. This Summer our sermon series will be addressing transitions and build a life wherever Jesus leads them. We are two weeks in and I’ve already been hearing great feedback from our student body. Continue praying for our Thursday night Summer Focus meetings.


I’m am now in my third summer of fundraising and although God has always generously provided through you and others this season tends to always be a stressful one for me and our all of our staff. One thing I don’t do every year is pray for our fundraising consistently and faithfully. Please join me in doing that! I’m currently praying for 15 people to join my support team this upcoming school year and could use others to join me in praying for God to bring those people.

Last prayer request (I promise).
This Thursday morning (6/6), I’ll be having surgery to remove my gallbladder and for some reason I’m a little freaked out about going under anesthesia. If you could pray for the procedure and a quick recovery that would be amazing! I had been having some abdominal pain and I’m so glad I know what it is and thankful to be having surgery, it’s just a little scary because I never had any medical procedures, not even an ER visit. Thank you for praying!

So thankful for each of you!

Your friend and campus missionary,

Sandra Salvador

I got to catch up with Sayuri over Facetime, she's all the way in Angola!

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…
