And the line-up is...

I have a very exciting announcement for any faithful followers of FOCUS at NDSU!

...drumroll please...

 I proudly present to you our FOCUS team for the 2012-2013 school year!

Say "Fargo!" Apparently I spoke too soon... I take after my dad.
  •  Starting at Left: Mikayla Koble! She's still a student at NDSU and will be graduating and departing from us in December with a degree in Human Development Family Sciences the Child and Adolescent option (or something like that!). She likes photography and art, soccer and sharing the Gospel with college students.
  • Next up is Bryan Thiry! He'll be our fearless leader and team director. Originating rom Butte, Nebraska Bryan loves to farm, swing dance, drive his truck and grill meats (I've already heard he makes a pretty mean burger!). He was a missionary at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas last year and is SUPER excited about being our team director! He has lots of exciting plans and I can't wait to see how everything pans out.
  • In the middle is Cari Devlin! She has an absolutely beautiful soul and is filled with the joy of Christ. She went to University of Northern Colorado and originates from Las Vegas, Nevada! How nuts is that? (Especially for a small-town Wisconsin girl like myself...) She likes to dance and teach others how to master such a fine art. I'm so excited to have her on campus this year!
  • To the left of me is T.J. Beyer! He's actually got quite the story and I feel extraordinarily blessed that God chose him as our teammate. Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico (I know, two southerners, AND another Nebraskan! What are the odds?) he grew up as an Agnostic and after high school joined the army. He began following Christ while in service and ended up joining the Church just in 2010 after studying his way into it, so to speak. He started up a group of people that evangelized on a college campus and after meeting a missionary found out that's exactly what FOCUS does and made the executive decision to join up. What a rockstar! Maybe sometime I'll write more about him, all I know is that this is a dynamite group and we are so excited to do BIG things at NDSU this year! 

Oh, and Bryan already informed us of what the year will look like for us:

We will Pray hard, work hard, and play hard.

I think I can live with that.

And now to fall asleep to the sound of rain gently falling outside! What a night of blessings. Did I mention God is good? Because God is gooood. Amen!
