Excerpts from Elder Report…
… adults and students put their full hearts into our primary mission--loving and developing relationships with Slovene youth. Without exception, all poured themselves into this task sacrificially and with great enthusiasm.
…We all came prepared to share “our stories” which is important, but we found that it was really secondary to our main mission of showing God’s love. God’s love is powerful. It offers hope where there is despair, healing where there is pain, faith where there is doubt, and ultimately, transformation.
…before I ask, “Was I effective?” I need to ask the question, “was I faithful to God’s calling?”. God alone is the one who changes people, and in him alone I trust to work in the lives of Slovene youth.
…When the church operates as God has intended it to, I believe it is the most powerful force on earth, and I believe God used our team in a great way.
…I’ve known all along but it was just a nice reminder. She re-taught me that a relationship with Jesus/God really is just that, a relationship. This may seem simple, but to me this reminder was huge, and just what I had needed to hear.
