This new year also means a brand new chapter for our family:
YOUNG LIFE SCOTLAND!
The ministry of Young Life has been woven into our stories since high school. Young Life is the place where Adam and I first met, the place we’ve made life-long friends, and the place where we gave our broken hearts over to Jesus. A decision for Christ made early on in life can drastically change the course of generations to come. Adam and I are eternally grateful to have been impacted as a couple of high school kids through Young Life, and equally grateful for the chance we have had to serve YL in our area and region for the past 15 years. I have been soaking in some the fullest, most cherished years of my life helping to lead my high school friends here.
Since college Adam and I have desired to return to a more full time position with Young Life. We have found that the need is great and the call to Scotland is clear, and we are praying that the passions and skills God has planted within us will make way for new growth He is preparing in the UK. Adam will get to continue his work in financial planning while integrating it with this new position as Country Developer for YL in Scotland. We are so excited for the chance to build community, come alongside the wonderful YL staff in Scotland, start Young Life College, encourage generosity throughout Scotland, the UK and Europe, and share the BEST news with kids abroad.
Entering this new chapter of ministry with Young Life really is a homecoming for our family, but it does not come without all kinds of emotions attached. We will DEEPLY and dearly miss this community that has loved our family well through the mountains and valleys, joys and sorrows. There is still much to put in order in the coming months as we prepare to make this giant leap as a family, but we trust fully that God has every detail, He has our family and He has our future. And so we say, “Lead on, Lord.”
Prayers appreciated as we prepare for this new year and new chapter for our family serving Young Life in Scotland.
THEN I HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD SAYING,
“WHOM SHALL I SEND? AND WHO WILL GO FOR US?”
AND I SAID, “HERE AM I. SEND ME!”
