“They said it was one of the best weeks of their life!”
This is what I have heard from many, many parents of children and young people who experienced a summer SU camp or mission – usually followed by a comment about the fun their child had and the growth in their child’s faith in Jesus. I think this is what Jesus meant when He said “I have come that you might have life and life to the full” – immense fun, hearing about and meeting Jesus and a week to remember. Young people are finding life in Jesus through SU. So good! Thank you for your time, energy, commitment, financial support and prayer that makes it all happen.
The year ahead will be a really interesting one for our movement. New ministries Reel Change (digital storytelling in schools), Journey Youth Ministry Support (training and development for youth pastors/leaders), School Student Ministry, VetaChurch (discipleship course) and Make a Difference (MAD) Workshops will all start in the first half of the year and I really believe that God is using us to reach young West Aussies with the Good News of Jesus. There will be continual efforts to build the financial sustainability of the movement, changes to volunteer orientation and the ongoing discussion about and journey towards a national SU. I’d love you to join me in praying for all of it.
Praying that you have a deep experience of God’s grace in Jesus this year.
