I have no words to describe how proud I am of our young people here. Normally within these notes from me I tell you what's all been happening but I thought I would do things a little differently. I wanted to write about what I have noticed over the past few years of being here and all of it is thanks to God working within these young people’s lives!
I've noticed the one who didn't 'fit in' be part of a family who love and cherish them and give them the opportunity to grow.
I've noticed the child who used to answer all my questions in the children story lead the story themselves.
I've noticed someone who didn't believe in their gifts now confidently use those gifts.
I've noticed the one who didn't think they were loveable feel loved and accepted.
I've noticed a child who has been labelled not smart enough know their Bible inside and out.
I’ve noticed a young person who said God isn’t real break down accepting the love He has for them.
I've noticed a child who was always in the shadow stand tall and be their own.
How great is it that Carnalea is a place where these young people have the opportunity to grow, explore and become the woman/man of God they are called to be!
So thank you church for allowing this. Young people thank you for letting me journey along with you!
All glory to God who is changing lives. I am so excited for the next adventures.
