Encouraged by seeing our youth serve
Yesterday during a visit to the last night of AWANA I came across some familiar faces from Youth Group and was reminded that there are some teens in our group that have been quietly serving in that ministry for a number of years. It was really nice to see Michelle, Emily, Nicole, Ashley, Jeff, Kyle, Isaac, Eleanor and Elizabeth fully engaged and being recognized by the AWANA leadership for their contributions.
Some are in their first year(s) of service while others like Mark, Joseph and Ryan (the Network) have quite a few more years under their belts.
I know that our service here is for Him, but just wanted to say how much it is appreciated when we see young people stepping up and becoming involved. It encourages the rest of the assembly when we see you giving of your time to serve.
