England Update- better late than never!

As my last week in Hoddesdon, England comes to an end, I just wanted to drop a quick line to say thank you. All of you have been incredible, not only by supporting me financially with my summer internship, but by continually praying and encouraging along the way. The past few months have been life changing and exciting, and it could not have happened without your support!

The Lord has been so faithful through these three few months working with Young Life. It is has been incredibly affirming to see a glimpse of what life would look like as a missionary in the UK. The work is so fulfilling and encouraging, but the harvest is plenty and the workers are few! The YL in Hoddesdon is growing so fast that the small staff of 2 can barely keep up! While this is a blessing to see so many young lives changed, it has certainly been a struggle to watch this summer.

This is why it is such an encouragement that last week Young Life in Hoddesdon offered me a 3+ plus permanent position as a staff associate! I can't tell you how incredibly blessed I feel by this, God is so good! As I look back on all the years of preparing and and ahead to the next season of fundraising, I can't help but be in awe of what God does all over the world.

As I return to the states next week, I ask that you continually be in prayer for the fundraising process. While my official budget is still in the works, the support for 3 years in Europe will take about a year to fundraise. I'm excited, yet anxious for the first part of my ministry. Pray for the process!

So again, thank you for the prayers and support, they are incredibly appreciated!

Grace and peace.
