How are you? It’s been busy over here on the west coast but things are going quite well. I just wanted to write you a quick update of what’s been going on with me.
I’m excited that I am able to go to my hometown in northern Minnesota for the holidays to spend time with my family and friends. While I’m home, I will be hosting a Coffee & Dessert Night on January 9th at 6:30 PM. I would love for you to come! During the evening, I will be sharing about what I’ve done in the past year with YWAM, what next year holds, as well as what the Lord has been teaching me. We will finish off the evening with good ole’ fashion fellowship, having coffee or tea and a yummy dessert together! Look for information on the evening below.
In my last update, I briefly explained about the disaster relief training school I did called RescueNet. I’ve received my certificate of achievement, meaning I’ve passed the course, which I am thrilled about! I am now in the process of applying to be on the RescueNet team. I will be sure to update you after the application process is complete.
Currently, I am in the process of setting up a few outreaches for next spring. We are taking a youth group to San Francisco to do homeless and human trafficking ministry. I’m excited because this is the same youth group that we took to San Francisco last year so it’ll be fun to see how they’ve grown in the past year. I recently had the opportunity to go and visit the youth group a few weeks ago and the students seem excited for the upcoming outreach. I will also be leading a team back to Haiti with a church in our local area. I’m really excited for this outreach because we’re going to be doing a house build for a few families and also because I felt like I learned so much the last time I went to Haiti and how to lead a team better. It will also be so much fun to see my friends from Haiti again!
