|Collin Focus at Fall Camp!|
Welcome to fall, friends! It's only just begun to cool down in Texas, but we still have days that reach into the 90's. The heat couldn't stop us from having a great Fall Camp this month!! Our theme this year was community. We wanted to take advantage of our time experiencing community to also share why it's so valuable. One of my favorite points from the weekend was that community is not about me or us being good - it's about God being good. We are all broken people serving each other - pastors, students, apprentices, corefas (student leaders), everybody.

|Here are two Preston Ridge girls on a walk-and-talk at camp! A camp favorite activity to strike up conversation with new people. (Another picture from Kortny!)|
|Here is our core this last Tuesday! A typical core night for us consists of laughter, witty comments, scripture, discussion, a few tears, prayer, and some more laughs. These girls are super sweet to know and I love learning from them.|

|I keep mentioning my cofa, Kortny, for all of her pictures. So here she is! I love planning and facilitating core with her and can't wait to see how God continues to use her this year.|
Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few."
- Please pray for Pedro and I as we lead the Preston Ridge campus. Ask for guidance and wisdom as well as willingness to slow down, turn back, move ahead, or whatever it may be.
- Pray for all of our students and staff who are both leading and learning in one-on-one Bible studies - that they would seek to point others to the Lord rather than themselves or own preferences.
- Pray for our students as they start to feel the weight of the semester to strive to be good students.
- Pray for our entire staff team to discern the needs of our campuses.
I love what I get to take part in as an apprentice and it wouldn't be possible without your support. I think about how thankful I am, daily, because of you.
