A Time of Transition

  February went by in a flash and still managed to contain several major events!  Melissa organized our Valentathalon celebration this year and it was a huge success.  If you have never heard of this event all I can say is love and athletic competition meets work out attire and formal wear.  Melissa's blog has some great pictures to help you get the idea!  Our parent night was a huge success. Several parents and students shared about FOCUS and the impact that the community has had on their lives. Just like winter camp I felt that I had the best view in the house that night.  Pregnancy has me always in the back ready for a restroom escape, but at the same time getting to see the full picture of worship team, parents, students, visiting staff, and supporters.  A huge thank you to all of you who made that night so meaningful. It was especially meaningful since it was the last UNT FOCUS event that I will be able to attend this semester.

Next year's interns are already applying and will be interviewed and selected in the coming weeks.  This year 11 students have decided that the best way they can spend this next school year is to dedicate it to studying God's word and loving His people on our college campuses.  I am especially excited to see that several of the applicants are coming from our campus this year.  God has really moved in the hearts of our students thanks to their open hearts and your continued prayers.  Keep 'em coming!

As I mentioned briefly last month I was starting to transition my role at UNT due to the much awaited arrival of my twins.  Sooner than expected this month I had to stop commuting to Denton entirely. I now meet with all of my girls and other leaders by phone.  The past month has been both exciting and very difficult.  I find myself on the outside looking in at some of our ministry events since my inability to commute has kept me at home.  Please pray for Matt and Melissa as they transition into a two person team to finish out this semester.  Melissa will be stepping up as the lone woman on staff at UNT, but I couldn't be more excited for her and the amazing job I know she will do.  She has grown so much through the internship this year and preached an outstanding sermon this past month!  This will be my last blog for the semester, but I encourage you to continue reading about the great things God is doing in the other staff blogs.  Thank you for the support that you have shown me this year.
