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 love and approval in all the wrong people and places. I was broken, selfish, and I was always looking for people to imitate or to impress I was exhausted! Ten years ago in the spring, I met people who loved Jesus and loved me! Because they loved me, I have met some of my closest friends, I led cores, now I get to do campus ministry, what the heck?! I'm so thankful for the last decade and how good the Lord has been to me! If you haven't done so already I encourage you to take some time to reflect on how you've seen God at work in the past 10 years. I would love to hear your reflections!

Thank you for all your prayers and support my friends! The winter break was very restful for me and I'm so ready to start school back up and be back with the kiddos. Enjoy the pictures! :)

Your campus missionary,
Sandra

April Ministry Updates

Hey friends!I hope you are doing well. This past weekend was Spring Showcase our annual fundraiser we put on each year to help send student to the Student Institute of Campus Ministry in Bellingham, Washington.. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to all who gave and for coming to the event. It was such a success and we are so excited to use this money to help fund some of our students trip. If you didn’t get a chance to enjoy Spring Showcase here’s a video from one of our students a couple years ago, click here. It’s the sweetest video!  I will be traveling with the June students this summer making this my 4th time going to SICM. I’m not tired of it yet, that’s how great it is!This year we have four students from Richland that are going to SICM this year. If you weren't able to come to Spring Showcase but would like to give towards their trip you can do so here. Their names are Claude, Reni, Kobloh-Obase, Josue Corzo. :)

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…
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 f…
