Happy New Year! I can't believe it's already here. I am super excited to see what God is going to do on our campus this semester!
But before we jump ahead, let's look back on how the semester finished!
End of Semester!
The end of the semester came so quickly! UTD did all of their Final exams online so that people who went home for Thanksgiving break a week prior could just stay home. So we wrapped up a lot of our meetings with our leadership team the first week of December. That meant that they had almost a month of a break before school started again! Thankfully a lot of them were still willing to Zoom call or live in the area, so I still tried to meet up with who I could before they went home/spent time with family for Christmas. Our staff got some time off for the Holidays, in which I read a lot, spent some time with friends and family, and hung out with my dog, Moose :)
We are starting back up some campus outreach in January, sending out students to meet people who have moved this semester or have classes in person. A majority of the classes are still online, but that is NOT stopping us from being on campus!
We are also resuming our, "Deep Dive" Friday night service. We will be doing a series on Idolatry and picking different things that society/young people idolize, and then looking at Scripture regarding those topics from the Prophets. I am super excited about it!
Please Pray For:
- The students returning to school this week, that they would have a heart to minister to the students in their classes.
-Our staff, as we navigate how to do ministry safely but effectively amidst the Pandemic. Also that we would be able to empower our students to do ministry to the best of their ability!
Here are a few recreational pictures from the month of December!
