October 20, 2023 3rd Friday Speaker – Anders Peterson
Anders Peterson is the team leader for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this year and has 6 women and 5 men on his team. Anders has been assigned to the UNL campus for 5 years now. He is from a small town of Canton, SD which is 20 minutes South of Sioux Falls, SD. He graduated from Iowa State University and was a member of a fraternity. As a sophomore, he like the 70% of college students was lonely or very lonely. He would walk past the Newman Center on campus every day and something drew him to stop in one day. There was so much hope and joy with students there that drew him into wanting to return. His junior year he was asked if he wanted to attend a bible study and he did. By the time he was a senior he took RCIA and joined the Catholic faith in 2018. So including this year, he has been a Catholic starting on his 6th year.
The UNL FOCUS team has 700 students who attend 60 Bible Studies! The goal of FOCUS is for Divine Intervention and then create Authentic Friendships and then for college students to become Disciples bringing others to and lead Bible Studies!
Anders said that the Masses at St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church on Sunday’s at 10 AM is full, the 11:30 AM and 5:30 PM are ¾ full and the 9:10 PM is full. He does Bible Studies in Fraternities and mentors 140 guys. Last year, his Bible Study group at Farmhouse has two guys who discerned that wanted to become priests and this year they are in the Seminary!
