Last night as we gathered for worship we heard from some in our community as they shared how their summers (and lives) were impacted by their being sent in mission over the summer. We celebrate the vital witness of people who, over the years, have heard God's call, had their plans radically changed, and were never quite the same through participating in God's mission through the Auburn Wesley Foundation.
That vital witness continues!
We heard from Rachel and Bo about youth caravan. We heard from Eric and Megan from the Tanzania mission trip... and Megan spend 6 more weeks there in addition to the three weeks the team spent.
But we realize it isn't just these people who have stories of being drawn into God's mission in the world. And are trying to figure out what to do now in light of what they've experienced of God and others. We also realize the opportunities that we offer through Wesley aren't the only opportunities.
So for the next several days we'll be sharing a series of posts from those who also spent at least part of their summer in mission and ministry. May their witness and journey and faith and questions call forth and invite the same in you!
Grace + Peace,
Tony Jeck | Associate Director, Auburn Wesley Foundation
