Summer 2k19!

Our 2018-19 UTA/DBU Leader Team!

Some of my roommates and me at our end-of-year party!
Hey guys! As we transition into the summer, I wanted to update you all on what ministry has looked like since the school year ended.

A few weeks ago, we took our students to SICM (Student Institute of Campus Ministry) where they spent a week in class learning how to reach their peers and make disciples on their campuses. Not only was it a blast to spend time with these awesome students in the beautiful Bellingham, WA; it was also so cool to see them fired up and feeling equipped to be missionaries to UTA and DBU! Praise God that such a resource exists and has blessed our campuses for so many years. I remember leaving SICM as a student feeling so ready to do ministry because I was confident that God could use anyone who would join him in his work, and I'm excited for our students to see that truth in action this year!

Our amazing students. I don't know why they are the way they are.

Now that SICM has come and gone, I'm spending my summer :
- learning alongside our students (through our Summer FOCUS sermon series) about what it looks like to continue to be a disciple and make disciple when the Lord calls you out of FOCUS (usually due to graduation)
- studying Scripture with some of our students who are still in town for the summer
- selecting students for leadership this coming school year
- fundraising! Thank you to everyone who has supported me thus far and thank you to everyone who has agreed to support me going forward. Your generosity makes all of this possible!

If you would join me this summer in praying for God to move powerfully in these four areas, I would greatly appreciate it!

With love and gratitude,
Jalen
