September Update

Hi all! It's been a busy month! School started two weeks ago, and we've concentrated our efforts on just being on campus, being as visible as possible and meeting as many new students as possible. I got to meet a ton of new girls and invited them all to our small groups or our large group meetings. This is what our welcome week looked like.

Welcome week event schedule. We gave these flyers out to as many students as we could.

On Thursday, we kicked off our large group meetings and tons of new people came! The room was packed, and I was able to spend the evening with four different girls, all of whom attended a small group the next week.

The last couple of things we kicked off were core (or small groups) and peer team (a small group leader meeting.)

Our core was on Wednesday night. I get to lead with Vanessa, who is one of the sweetest humans on the planet and is also exactly like me in so many ways. We have a lot of fun together and I'm super excited to see what God does with us this year. About twelve girls came to our core this week and every one of them said yes to a one-on-one study! I'm really looking forward to meeting with them and I'll be sure to let you all know how they go.

On Monday night, we had our first peer team. I lead a peer team that consists of myself and three other student leaders, Vanessa, Claire and Shannon. Claire and Shannon lead the Tuesday night core. And guys I cannot tell you how excited I am to be working so closely with these three girls. They all have such hearts for other people, they serve so well, and they work so hard to reach out to everyone they possibly can. I got to stay with Shannon and Claire back during SICM and they're close friends, and Shannon and Vanessa have been friends for years, so we are already a pretty tightly knit group and that has just been such a blessing. I'm so excited for this year.

Claire and Shannon. I love them. 
Apparently Vanessa and I need to work on our picture-taking, because we have zero together. We'll work on that for you next month. 

Thank you guys for reading and as always, thanks for supporting! If you're looking for ways to pray, I have a couple.
1. Pray for the girls that came to our small group: Ashley G, Ashley J, Hailey, Kasey, Kennedy, Lauren, Miranda, Rue, Selina, Chloe, Maserati, and Mikela. I don't know what God wants to do in each of their lives, so I'd love prayer that he brings them all closer to him.

2. Pray for the campuses, that we don't stop reaching out even though the welcome week season is over. There are a ton more people who need Jesus, so please pray that we're able to reach them.

Love you guys!
