Had campaigners last night with the group of high school girls myself, Rach and Kelley are walking with. Man I love these girls, and I am so excited to watch them grow into the wonderful women of God that they are becoming. They really are my little sisters I never got to have and I love watching they succeed and go on to great things. Two of them are planning on doing work crew this summer and I couldn't be more excited for them! Everything they are going to learn, everything they are going to experience and everyone they are going to meet, I know that it's going to be the best month of their life!
A friend sent me a video yesterday from Chattanooga, TN Younglife and I loved it so much! It talks about the importance we have as younglife leaders and what we do and why we do it. When I think back to where my story started, it started with my younglife leader.
