Swinging into September!
Hey friends and family! Welcome to my second blog post! This month has been spent with me getting into the swing of full time ministry. It has been challenging to adjust from being a student to full time work, the irregular hours and figuring out how to adjust my life in order to serve the students. Even though it has been challenging at time I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I work with a staff who has immense patience, walks us through this job and deeply cares for us new ministers on a personal level. The students at UTD have given us apprentices a warm welcome as we are trying to get to know the area and meet everyone. They are truly the best! I have also learned a lot about Jesus and his ministry which has already grown me as a person and influenced my life for the better. For these things I cannot help but be grateful and excited to be at UTD. I get to witness God work on this campus every day He has done some incredible things! Lets dive in to this past month!
TNF is Tuesday Night Fellowship. These are our large group meetings on Tuesday night. The meetings consist of worship, a sermon by one of our staff members, group discussion and a time afterward to hangout and meet new people. Each year we have a theme for the sermons and to direct our community. This year the theme is "Steadfast." We are learning how to be steadfast with our relationship to each other and how God remains steadfast in pursuing us. I am eager to see how theme plays out in the lives of our staff and students.
