Wrapping up the Year!

 Hi friends and family, we have officially wrapped up the school year! This also means the apprenticeship has officially ended. It has been a whirlwind of ten months. I am so thankful for every minute of it, and so grateful for the way you have generously supported me as a minister and friend. I want to share some special moments from this past month that helped us wrap up the year! 

End of Year Party 

We celebrated the end of year with worship music, photos, and a yummy dinner! We put together a Kahoot based off of things that happened this year that would be funny for the students to answer. It was a total blast, and a great way to kick off summer! 

Hailey and Emily

      I have had the joy of getting to meet with these wonderful women each Friday this year. Hailey  is my cofa ( we lead bible study). She is so steadfast, funny, and just such a  light to whoever she meets. I have absolutely loved getting to be her friend.  

    Emily Spencer is our peer team leader, so she not only mentors us, but other girls who are also corefas. She is such a genuine person, who is so fun to be around. She also would always make us dinner whenever we had peer team meetings. I am so thankful for both of these girls!

Hailey and I!

Exciting Moments 

This past month was filled with so many fun and exciting moments I got to be apart of. I got to visit Nashville and see some of my family, then I got to go to Austin and see some more family, then of my best friends and old roommates got engaged, then I got to make bracelets with some friends who are in our ministry. It was just such a fun filled month! 

Last thoughts

As the apprenticeship has wrapped up, I wanted to take some time and share some of my big takeaways. I have been so grateful for this entire experience. God has definitely used this year to refine me and I am still in that process of being refined. I have learned so much this year about relying on what God thinks about me over what people think about me. God has already called me his child and that is so much more important. I have started this year processing some of my thoughts about eating, weight, and the different struggles I have had with that. I have been blessed with many different peers who are so thoughtful and deeply care for me. This year has been so so incredible.

Student Testimony 

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for our Summer FOCUS series, that our students think deeply and develop friendships 
  • Pray for fundraising, God is always such a good provider, help by praying that we continue to remember that truth! 
  • Pray for our students as they disperse to different places over summer break  

Again I want to thank you all for your generosity over the past ten months, without your generosity this would not be possible. Your donations are a huge reason so many students lives get turned to the beauty of who God is. Without people like you who have caught the vision of college ministry this would not be possible. So thank you so much again, this was an incredible year and you are such a big part of that!
