Chapter Spotlight: University of Texas

The University of Texas Phi Lamb chapter felt called to glorify God and make His name great, not only within the confines of the sorority, but also in a way that reached their entire campus. They desired to make their presence, as a Christian sorority, known and help people to know God in the process. So, they held a Block Party! The public was invited to come to the Gregory Plaza, a central location on campus, for this event where they could get free good, catered by Cabo Bobs and Chick-Fil-A, hear live music by four local artists of varying genres, and have fun at carnival booths run by Phi Lamb members.  The outcomes were awesome!  They had conversations with people that have never experienced a relationship with Christ, students got free food, partnerships were established between Phi Lamb and community businesses, and people took notice of Phi Lamb saying things like, “Wow, I saw that event on snapchat and it looked so cool!  What organization are y’all?” The event was a great success because of the time, planning, and prayer put into it by the officers and members of the chapter, and God blessed their efforts.

Chapter Spotlight: Angelo State University

This spring, our sisters at our Angelo State University chapter held a fun event for their alumnae! This year's theme was "Lambies in Jammies" and together actives and alums were able to fellowship, eat a delicious brunch, and dress in their comfiest pajamas. They listened to a special devotional from the current chaplain about sisterhood and how Jesus connects us all and had a blast playing their annual game of Bunco!

However, this year was extra special. The chapter had heard about one of their alums, Shyanne Holik, who had a daughter who was born with a rare type of brain cancer. The chapter decided to use this event to raise funds for Shyanne, her daughter Hadlee, and this sweet family. They also created a Facebook event so those were not able to attend could still join in and be involved. Through the "Hope for Hadlee" t-shirt sales and other donations, they were able to raise funds for Cure ATRT (per the family's request) which will help fund research for this specific type of cancer (Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor). During the event, members and alumnae split into small groups and spent time in prayer specifically for the Holik family. Later, Shyanne mentioned that she has really started to feel the prayers of all those who have supported them during this difficult journey.

Actives and alums alike were blessed to be able to bond through this event. Not only did alums feel supported by the actives, but with such a large turn out of alums present at the event, the actives felt supported as well! ASU recognized that we are part of a larger connection - not just as sisters in Phi Lamb, but we are bonded because we are sisters in Christ. They demonstrated love in a practical way and we are blessed to have these women part of our Phi Lamb family.
