We're on the go.
Life never slows down, does it? I think many parents would agree that we are constantly busy with things from work, to home, to church, to school, you name it. This past summer has been a whirlwind.
Just before London arrived in May, my boss, who oversees all US Ministries, asked me to pray about helping the US Field move forward by changing some of my job duties to help equip leaders across the state and nation to reach and disciple children. As your Awana Missionaries, we go out and equip and encourage local church leaders with the tools and confidence to share the gospel and engage children in lifelong discipleship. Along with that, the past two years we have been US Field Directors, where we oversaw 9 other missionaries in their ministries, to help lead them in better serving and equipping their churches and communities through Awana. Now, we are no longer serving as Field Directors, but have taken on the role as Innovative Directors for Awana. What does that entail?
As Innovative Directors, we are responsible for taking the message of Awana even further. We are going to be traveling out of state a little more to equip pastors and church leaders with the message of making RESILIENT child disciples. Children whose faith won't waver when they are attacked or ridiculed for being Christian. Children who will have the heart to share Christ's love with the lost and with the spine to stand firm in their beliefs.
