Thank you so much for your partnership and support! :) I can't believe that we're already in October and almost at the halfway point of the semester. God has been so faithful with all of the new students that are entering our lives. I hope that the photos below are encouraging and a faithful reminder of how good our God is!
This year I am studying the bible 1 on 1 with several students. Please be praying for my relationship(s) with Josh, Kirubel, Javon, Chris, and Evan. These are all young men that I feel the Lord has called me to befriend and I am forever grateful for their heart(s) and willingness to form spiritual friendships in our community. Please pray for wisdom, insight, and for all of these students to encounter the love and personhood of Jesus Christ!
This year at Richland College, we have been doing outreach every week on Wednesdays. Every week we set up a volleyball net and bring water/Gatorade with the hopes of meeting and building new friendships with students. So far, this has been a powerful experience! I think that we, as a ministry, have been wrestling with how to balance our ministry meetings and formal outreach. These Wednesday activities have been a great addition to our gathering time(s) that help us meet students and grow in our presence on campus! We've had several campus faculty and even the president of the college walk by us and share how thankful they are to see students on campus hanging out & building campus life! Check out the photos below and be encouraged!
|Josh, one of our students at UTD FOCUS was sharing during our large group time how the Lord has changed his life! I loved getting to hear from him.|
|Our Richland FOCUS ministry setting up for Wednesday outreach! I can tell that they really enjoy one another and are excelling at building a community on campus.|
|Some of our Richland students decided to play an impromptu game of touch-football. It was great to watch them spend time with each other and have fun.|

Thank you all so much for your support and partnership! I am blown away that it has been 6 years since I walked on campus for the first time as a full-time campus missionary and many of you have been there with me since day one! You're all an inspiration to me and keep me going every day. The Lord has been faithful in crossing our paths over the years and I am looking forward to many more with you all side-by-side with me :)
Your campus missionary,
