FLYING THROUGH OCTOBER
Flying Through October
This month of ministry has already gone by so quickly. I can hardly believe that we only have a few weeks left until the end of the Fall 2023 semester. It continues to be extremely encouraging to see how God has been working through our ministry and through our students.
You may be aware that this year we have been placing greater importance on our outreach events and evangelism. As part of the outreach team, I've gotten the chance to participate in some really neat opportunities to share the gospel with students at UTD. One of the most impactful events was one in which we cleaned student's shoes for free. We took our inspiration from the story of Jesus washing the feet of the disciples. We explained the story to students while washing their shoes and had really good conversations about what they thought about the story.
Another event we put on was using AI to capture an image of heaven based on the descriptions of what students thought heaven would look like. While nothing we produced will ever compare to what heaven will actually look and be like, we wanted people to think about what their picture of heaven looks like. Many people have images of flying off to a cloudy place with angels and harps but we got to share about what the heavens and the new earth might be like based off of the vision the apostle John sees in the book of Revelation. It was really cool to see what people's descriptions of heaven looked like when AI generated their image.
Trunk or Treat
October wouldn't be complete without a little candy and a costume party. This year we decided to set up a trunk or treat in the university parking garage. Three of our students decided to dress up as their favorite pastors. Brandon, Peter, and I got a photo with some of our guys dressed as us! They were very committed to their role as look-alike campus pastors. Mick even attempted to copy my tattoos!
I want to express my gratitude for your support in our campus ministry. Your prayers and encouragement each month have meant so much to me. I am truly thankful to have such an amazing support team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
