My prayer is that this letter finds you in a time of blessing and growth in the Lord. I want to bring you up to date on what is happening in my life. I am currently in my senior year at the University of North Texas. This past year has been challenging, but God has been very faithful. College has continued to be a wonderful experience for me. I have learned much, made great friends, and grown in my Christian faith. The Lord has blessed me with a community of believers who encourage me to grow closer to Him daily. I am a member at The Village just a few blocks away from where I live, and I serve occasionally with the greeting team. As you might remember, last summer I went to San Antonio with the Campus Outreach ministry and 50 other students. That was a fruitful and enriching summer and I am so thankful for your prayer and support. I have continued serving and leading within the core team with Campus Outreach this year. Leading others has been such a joy. Within the Campus Outreach ministry, we've seen 20 people come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior this semester. Outside of Campus Outreach, I've been taking 18 hours at the University of North Texas as I continue pursuing my degree in Business Management and Political Science with a Minor in Marketing. I've also been working full time at Wells Fargo. Working 40 hours a week and being a full time student is very demanding, exhausting, and at times hard to balance. Through it all, God has been gracious in providing me strength to get through each day and lean into Him. Recently it became known to me that a scholarship I was depending on in order to take summer school is no longer available to me. The money provided from the scholarship was extremely important. When I found out that the money was not going to be available, I thought my only option was to get another job in order to make up for the loss. I was overwhelmed. I was already over my head in work and school, and the idea of taking another job seemed impossible. That's when God placed a new idea in my heart. Last year, when I raised support for Project San Antonio, God showed me the beauty of relying on Him to provide for my needs. My nature is to provide for myself, especially when it comes to financial needs. This tendency to provide for myself showed up when I found out about the scholarship and needed extra money. Though I was over my head with obligations, I was willing to get another job because I feared being in need. It became obvious, however, that there was no possible way for me to add on to my already packed schedule. That's when God reminded me that He is a good Father who gives good things to those who ask Him! I realized then that God wanted to take away my pride in providing for myself and have me raise money in order to pay for summer school. In order to attend summer school, I need to raise $4,000 by June 1st. This will cover my tuition, books, and rent. Would you join me in prayer that God would raise this money and that I would trust Him through this process? Would you also prayerfully consider helping me raise this money by giving a gift of $100, $200, $300 or more? Of course whatever amount the Lord leads you to give is the right amount. The easiest way to give is to send a check made out to Sehraa Blades. More than anything I desire your prayers as I seek to follow the Lord this summer. If you have any questions about what I will be doing or support raising, I would love to hear from you! My email address is sblades1031@yahoo.com or call me at 817-703-2918. Thank you for loving and supporting me. You are dear to me.
