June Ministry Update!


Hello Ministry Partner!  

Thank you so much for making this year possible. It has been a year filled with growth, laughter, tears, new friendships, and joy in the Lord. Thinking about all the people who have loved me and poured into me this year is overwhelming.  Each of my donors, my apprentice class, all of my teachers, each member of our staff team, the FOCUS directors, our student leaders.  I am richly blessed.    

This year has changed my life and my heart to look a little bit more like Jesus. The Lord has shaped my heart in many ways, some that I probably don't even see. He has taught me that he is a gracious and compassionate and ready to extend grace. I have learned this through the person and character of Jesus. 

Jesus is literally incredible- he cares for the little people, the ones who seem insignificant; he is bold and unconcerned about the opinions of others; he looks to the heart and is always ready to offer grace and acceptance; and he shows us who the Father is. Our God is good. 

                                                    Taste and see that the Lord is good!

At the end of May I gave a sermon where I shared about my takeaways from this year in the apprenticeship.  I would love for you to watch it and share my takeaways with you!  My sermon starts at 1:00:40


Summer is in full swing!  Here's a few photos of summer happenings:

In the summer all of our FOCUS campuses come together to worship at CARE Church. This church has been so gracious to our ministry to allow us to use their building for summer meetings and other events over the past many years.  Thank you CARE Church! 

Finally our student testimony from Erika at Richland College:

I am so looking forward to continue doing ministry with FOCUS through the summer and next year. If you have not already and would like to continue your support this next year, here's a link to give!  

Thank you so much for reading! 

In Christ,
