November Update! Be Thankful!

God has been up to so much at UTD over the last month. He is really preparing our students hearts for our annual winter camp this January! (Also) SOMETHING EXCITING: If you haven't heard about our #FOCUS140 campaign please watch the video below!

We've had students impacted tremendously through campus ministry and wanted to invite you to take part in our campaign to keep FOCUS growing as we move to new campuses and follow God where he leads us. Campus ministry has challenged me to expand my vision for God's kingdom and has humbled me to understand and trust him. He is so good! As we prepare for finals and Christmas break, please pray that our students would finish the semester strong and that God's will would be made known to those who are still unsure about what God wants from them. 

Enjoy the pictures below!:

Thanksgiving potluck that FOCUS hosted for our students who stayed in town over the holiday. We had some great Turkey and got to know lots of international students.

My peer team I meet up with every week! (Bottom: Marcus, me (Sirak), Ryan, and Zack. Top: Charles, Morgan, JD, Austin, and Stephen) These students have been such a joy to meet up with and spend time with. They all have volunteered to spend this year serving our students and being involved in disciple-making relationships; please pray for them as they impact UTD!
One of our students, Kimberly, getting baptized by our UTD FOCUS intern, Ana!
After Kimberly's baptism we all took a group photo - we are so happy to have her a part of our ministry and are so thankful for God's grace in calling her towards him!

None of this would be possible without your support and commitment to partnering with us on God's college campuses. I hope you all had a blessed thanksgiving and are moving closer and closer to Jesus everyday. I wish you were all here with me walking the campus and being involved in conversations with these students, but I know through your support that you are just as near in your partnership.

Your campus missionary,
