I have the privilege of co-leading a small group of student leaders called a peer team. In this group the student leaders come together to share news, be encouraged, grow in their spiritual lives and build friendship. This year we are studying through the book Finding Calcutta by Mary Poplin. Mary shares about when she went to volunteer with Mother Teresa and the lessons she learned about God and herself while she was there. This book has really sparked some powerful conversations as we look into our own lives and our relationships with God. I personally have been really challenged by the questions the girls are asking!
Several students collected donations to throw a costume party this past Sunday. The party was a blast! Students brought guests that had not attended a FOCUS event this year, but felt comfortable coming to a party. It was a fun night of fellowship, but that wasn't what impressed me most. What impressed me was the incentive that the students had to plan the function on their own and the fact that so many students gave generously to make it a success.

The most exciting news is the baptism that took place tonight! Ana, one of our student leaders, has been studying the bible with Marissa, another student at UNT, for a while now. Recently Ana really challenged her to step up and totally give her life to God. Marissa's answer was absolutely yes!

I will close out this post with an exciting bit of personal news...My husband and I are expecting twins!!! The little Knoles will be arriving sometime in late March or early April. More updates to come!
Thanks again for everything you do!
