Here Come The Holidays!

Good Afternoon My Friends!

I hope you all are getting ready for the holidays approaching soon!  It's that time of year filled with turkeys, stockings, carbs, and family.  I don't know if any of you feel this way but it is so crazy to think that it is already November :) I hear the older you get the faster time passes; this is the truth!

It has been a great month - the FOCUS staff chose not to do our annual Fall Camp but replace it with a Fall Park Day.  We had such a great turnout - over 140 students showed up to Breckenridge park to play sports, get to know one another, and participate in a time of worship/sharing.  (See pictures below)

Park day was a huge success thanks to your support and committment to being a part of what God is doing on his college campuses.  I cannot begin to describe how thankful I am for you deciding to support what is going on at UTD FOCUS.  

This Sunday night from 4:00 - 9:00 pm we are having our annual event, Pizza Theology.  This is where students from all 6 of our FOCUS campuses come to hear a guest speaker (and expert on the topic) give a lecture and enjoy a pizza dinner :)  Our topic this year is: Breaking free from addictions and impulsive behavior.  I'm excited!  Please pray that our students would be receptive to the spirit and that the event would open the door for further conversations!

Thank you again so much for your support! 

Your friendly neighborhood campus missionary,
