Watch This and Be Encouraged

Jared, the same student who I wrote to you about just a week ago is also a film student and he recently made a short video documenting his and others experience in Focus.

Student Sharing

Last week I sent out a blog that I wanted to include some student sharing in, but the student that I asked couldn't get their thoughts to me on time.

Thank you for having an impact in Jared's life by providing a place where he can come and learn about God and make friends and a family at the same time.

In Christ,
Austin
