About three months into my campus ministry internship I am learning to be efficient with the time God has so graciously given me because I definitely do not have much of it! Campus ministry warrants a lifestyle that is purposeful and prepared for any kind of situation that arises.
After our peer team meeting (see August post) I found myself having a long spiritual conversation with an student leader who needed advice in a situation he is going through, a few nights ago I drove a student leader who had a minor concussion in a volleyball game to the emergency room with another leader in our ministry, I preached a sermon in our intern bible class on Tuesday, and am preparing to read the entire book of Luke for one of our assignments. These are only a few of the things that are I am available to partake in thanks to your support for campus ministry! :)
Please pray that myself and the other campus ministry staff here would finish our semesters out strong and not grow weary in doing good :) I am also having my wisdom teeth taken out this Friday morning so please pray for a safe healing!

This past weekend our campus ministry hosted its annual Fall Camp held at Mount Lebanon Baptist Camp in Cedar Hill, TX. We had the largest turnout of students ever held at our fall semester camp that we've been hosting for the last 10 years! 140 students showed up to build relationships, grow closer to God, and be a part of what God is doing at UT Dallas.

You should see what is going on over here at UT Dallas! I meet students every week that I could only be meeting thanks to your support and prayers. It is really an honor to know that there are men and women out there who are committed to seeing lives changed on his college campuses through prayer and financial support.
