Sirak's June 2017 Update!

My team!

Thank you so much for your support and consistency! We're halfway through the summer and I am so energized and encouraged thinking about this fall. Our UTD/Richland/TWU Dallas Campus Missionary teams have been hard at work meeting up with students and building our leadership team for this fall. Please be praying for these students (many of them first-year leaders) as they prayerfully consider spending their fall & spring semester as campus missionaries! Our ministry is largely student-led and we believe in raising up leaders from the ground up! I was a student leader from 2009 - 2012 and I am forever grateful for the development and training I received then. I am so excited for many of these young adults to encounter the depth of Jesus' love as they serve and love their campuses!

Below you can see our student testimony for the month of July! This is just one story and my prayer is that this fall, as we meet students for the first time, we would be changing the stories of all the students we meet. Your support has been a huge catalyst in making this happen! I hope that the story below encourages you and reminds you of what your support is going towards!

Each week I have the privilege of studying the bible with one of our students at Richland College, Josh. He's been very involved in our group this year it's so awesome every week to see how God is growing & developing him.

Sarah King, our UTA Campus Pastor, preaching at Summer FOCUS last week. She did such a great job sharing how the Lord has grown her over the years. Our students were very impacted by her talk!

Our Summer FOCUS meetings have gotten so large! For many of you Alumni reading this, you remember that this size was that of our winter camp only a few years ago.

Thank you for believing in me and making a way for this campus-missionary journey. I am blown away at how faithful God has been through your partnership and friendship. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need prayer for anything in your life at all! Please be praying for our FOCUS staff at other campuses as we build our leadership teams. Pray for wisdom and discernment as we have important conversations with our students!

Your brother & campus missionary,
