Things on campus have been going so well this semester! We are overwhelmed by all that the Lord is doing and find ourselves really needing to seek the Lord in order to know how to best use our time! I told myself at the beginning of the semester that I was committed as normal until Spring Break (which is this week) then after Spring Break I would have to re-determine my capacity and what I am able to do as I am in my 9th month of pregnancy. Funny thing is the last few weeks have been so amazing on campus, it is imA few highlights for me personally in the past few weeks...
1) Praying with two of the older female student leaders. Every other Wednesday morning the three of us (and Katie Hubbard as available) have been meeting to pray about life, the ministry, the girls in the ministry... as the Lord leads. This time has been SUCH a blessing to me. It's wonderful to pray with others who are "in the trenches" with me and who really love and know the girls on my heart! As I continue to learn more about my gifting, strengths, weaknesses, etc. I have determined that it is essential for me to have time set aside to pray with others about the ministry. The Lord has really blessed me through this time! I am praying about how to make this a priority after baby Haas arrives :)
2) Studying 1 Thessalonians with the upperclass women. I'm co-leading this study with a student named Jess. It has been such a blessing to be deep in the word with these girls. They are really maturing, strengthening their faith, and growing deep roots in the Word as well as learning how to reach out to their friends around them. It is truly exciting!!
3) The privilege of meeting with a girl who knows very little about the Bible. Last week we got together and I started our time by giving a brief intro to the Bible. This started with me simply explaining that the Bible has two testaments! When is the last time you've had the privilege of starting at square 1 with someone in the word??? Pray for such an opportunity, it's incredible!
