Our first ever TNF at UTA is the top right photo!! What a blessing this was to see all these students show up to learn more about Jesus. We were located outside for the first three TNF meetings, but recently moved into a classroom that is shown below.
Our Core group photo is to the right! Kassidy and I lead a group once a week at my apartment called Core. We pray together, laugh together, get to know about everyone's backgrounds and ideas, read about Jesus together, and talk about how to live like Jesus does.
Our core did a neat activity last night where we wrote down prayers to God on a notecard that related to the scripture we were studying about God's purpose for our lives. It touched my heart to hear their prayers and what they had learned, so much so that I wanted to share three of those with y'all. It's a small glimpse at what God is doing at the heart level in the new students in Focus.
"God, you are so good. Thank you for placing people in my life that helped me see I was placing my worth in earthly things, instead of in you. I am so thankful for the way that you love your people and that you never change. Amen."
"God, please help me to remember that I need to work on putting my worth in you. Tonight I learned that I need to put my worth in you, not in other people, and that you see me as worth something even if I don't believe in myself."
"I hope to find my worth in God, because he finds worth in me-even when I don't."
Our fall camp is coming up this weekend on Saturday and Sunday. We would love for you to pray that we bond as a community of believers this weekend! It is so important to have that at the beginning of this ministry. We want to be united in vision for the UTA campus and that can only be done by the power of the Holy Spirit at work in us. Will you pray with us for that to happen this weekend?
I love all of you and am thankful to have you in my life! God is too good to me.
