The school year is over, I have moved from the concrete jungle they call New York City to Champaign, IL for 5 weeks of training, and now onto Crested Butte, CO for a week of vacation with my family and my teammate, Leah. I got out of the city just in time, for I'm sure if I hadn't left when I did, I would have turned into a nut. A crazy nut. But now, after 8 weeks of being away... I'm almost starting to miss Manhattan. Whaaat?
What a year! God is doing so much at Columbia! Some highlights:
- 10 girls strengthened their relationship with Christ through my weekly Bible Studies.
- Two girls, Rosie and Annabelle, grew deeper in their faith and began learning how to share their faith with others through weekly mentorship.
- One student went to Confession and began coming to Mass again after 3 years of not practicing the faith.
- A group of 16 students and missionaries encountered Christ in the poor and vulnerable on a mission trip to Haiti. One of those students entered the Catholic Church at Easter.
- 9 students were equipped with tools and strategies for sharing their faith with their peers at college through participating in a national FOCUS Student Leadership Summit.
student, after being resistant to idea that the Catholic Church holds
the fullness of Truth, has decided to become confirmed in the Church
- Countless other stories of Christ touching people’s lives through me and my work with FOCUS.
