Prayer Requests

I hope you are all doing well!

Mandy, Dawn, Sandra, and I have almost finished finalizing the woman's leader team at UTD next year! Which is a huge relief and blessing. Thank you so much for your prayers!!

If you could keep our staff's fundraising in your prayers, that would be amazing! I still have about $300 of monthly donation's I'm trying to fundraise; It seems like we're in a good place as a staff, but August is quickly approaching. I know that God is more than capable and big enough to meet our needs as a staff. The biggest way He works is through people, so I wanted to invite you to be thinking and praying about whether you know of anyone who would be excited about supporting this campus ministry! Just email me if you can think of anyone.

Thank you so much for all your prayers and support!

Student Testimony

Harrison Wijaya
Collin College - Spring Creek
When I came to the United States from Indonesia, I was pretty concerned about what life would be like. I immediately assumed I’d have a pretty lonely time at Collin. I heard about FOCUS but wasn’t really interested since I didn’t have a connection point. Interacting with strangers had never been my strong suit. Little did I know that God was listening and was ready to meet my needs. My first day on campus I met Graham, who told me about his involvement with FOCUS and introduced me to his friends. He followed up with me, and that was a huge way God started giving me a vision for what my life could look like.

Through one-on-ones and pastoral messages, this community has taught me the impact of reflecting Christ in every word I speak and action I take. Through my 
friendships, I’ve been shown how we can best love one another by putting all our efforts into blessing strangers like me. I've also had the opportunity to honor God at home by getting to live with five other guys from our community. Being in FOCUS, I’ve learned that God wants to open my eyes and heart to truly be shaped into someone who loves Him and those around me in all areas of my life.
