Hello Everyone, I can hardly believe my freshman semester at UNT is coming to a close. Many of you have asked what the summer holds for me and here is the answer. After spending time the last 4 summers on a mission trip in AZ, with Youth In Christ, I have decided to continue that tradition but as a college student with a new location. I will be going to Denver, Colorado with around 40 other college students to participate in a nine-week training program called Denver Leadership Project. The purpose of Denver Leadership Project (DLP) is to be trained and equipped in practical ways to grow in my personal relationship with Christ and to learn how to impact and share the Word with others throughout my life. There will be opportunities for Bible Study, Prayer, Fellowship, Church, and sharing the Gospel. God has blessed me in so many ways this semester, from close relationships, willing professors, the opportunity for advanced education, and a close community of Christian college students ready to grow in Christ together. I have found myself more optimistic and willing to talk about the Lord with no fear. I have also taken part in a weekly bible study with some of my close friends and I believe that this trip would further my education in God’s Word that I may proclaim the news of Him without fear and hesitation. This opportunity to go to Denver with other young adult Christians and study God’s Word is truly a blessing. I am sharing this with you because you have had a lasting impact on my life and I am forever grateful for all the times you have supported me and/or gave me encouraging words. I cannot thank the Lord enough for all the people he has blessed me with in life for these past 19 years. Y’all are truly a blessing to me and my family. The cost for this mission trip is $2,200. If you would like to make a donation to help cover some of the cost, it would be greatly appreciated! I would also appreciate your prayers of thanksgiving to God for this opportunity and for God’s blessing on the work we will be doing for his kingdom. If you have any questions, want to hear my thoughts and vision for this summer, or would like me to explain my heart behind why I want to go to Denver, my contact information is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to talking to you soon!
