Thanks so much for reading and keeping up with the blog. Your prayers and support have gone a long way - this quick season has brought so much encouragement and discovery. I have met so many women ready to encounter Jesus, gotten to know our staff better, and I've enjoyed the riches of God's grace and love through the process of integrating myself into a new community. God has proven Himself faithful and I'm grateful that I get to continue exploring how He wants to work in the lives of these students at Collin.
|On Wednesday, students answered the question, "What is one thing you wish people knew about you?" A lot of answers looked like this: people yearning to talk, expressing their shyness, and wanting to know people.|
|Our campus prayer team took a lunch break, and the Chick-fil-a workers gave us free ice cream when they heard we spent the day praying for Collin. How sweet! (Literally)|
Our students in FOCUS hit the ground running. We spent our days planting seeds with thoughtful conversation, playing games outside, and inviting students to our large fellowship meeting and small groups. It was so clear that our students have caught the vision - they were so active in showing up, meeting new people, and bringing students into community with them. I was blown away by the courage and boldness of these disciples that I get to know.
|Last Friday, I visited UTD FOCUS and caught a glimpse of God's work on their campus. They had about 300 students show up to their first night! My boyfriend Daniel wanted to get in on the picture.|
|Nothing like a good cup of tea and cinnamon rolls with a friend like Raven.|
