As I shared at the YD Thanksgiving Service just a little while ago, I really feel that with no interns this year, we have been given the gift of time, for which we are very grateful. I have seen the real value of having time to catch up with past interns (one of whom studied with us 30 years ago!) It has been so special to meet with past students who are going on strongly in the Lord either in vocational ministry or simply in their everyday walk and witness for Him, in spite of intense challenges and difficulties. I have also been very thankful to have time to work on revising subjects for Internship for future years.
An unexpected opportunity that has recently come up is being able to help lead the Mid Moose (mid-year Coffee Shop) team at St Arnaud with Georgie Dean and some other past YD students during the Term 2 school holidays. Georgie has been leading the team there for a number of years and it is a real blessing to have the time and space to be part of the leadership team and mission there! I’m really looking forward to it and would also value your prayers for it!
