Danielle's May Update

Last night Denton FOCUS had our Spring Formal to celebrate the end of the school year. We had a great time! We sang, we danced, we ate, we recognized our leaders and graduates, and we thanked God for all the things he did this year in our community and on our campuses.

It has been fun reflecting on what God has done this past year. I moved back to Denton almost a year ago and so much has happened since then. I've been adjusting to married life, working with a new team, leading a different campus, and living in a new city. I wouldn't trade it for anything, though. God has taught me a lot this year about how to be more selfless. I've also learned patience, specifically in leading the TWU ministry. We have had some trouble with students being inconsistent and lacking some commitment to God. However, I have seen our student leaders be faithful with what God has given and they have done an excellent job of serving selflessly. Our last meeting of the semester was full of students that are devoted to God and to each other! 

This Friday is our last large group meeting of the semester before finals begin and our students take a break for the summer. Thankfully, we will still be meeting as a large group over the summer with all 9 of our FOCUS ministries combined! If you are interested in checking out what God is doing in campuses all over the metroplex, then please stop by this summer! We will be meeting every Thursday night at 7:30 at Watermark Community Church in Plano, beginning May 25. 

I want to thank each one of you for continuing to pray and support our growing community. Your partnership with us is the thing that keeps us going! Our joys and successes are also yours, because of what you have poured into this ministry. We are so grateful for you! 

Much love <3
