Getting to Know Our Missionaries Better...
We've been back in the swing of things for a few months now, and as Thanksgiving approaches we wanted to take this time to share what we are thankful for!
For starters, we are thankful for all of the youth, young adults, and families that we get to serve every day. It is truly a blessing to be surrounded by such a warm and welcoming community that is devoted towards growing closer to God each day. When most people outside of the Star community think of youth ministry, they see it as the first real introduction and encounter for teens. Here at Star, we have come to find how deep the knowledge of the faith and love for God is in the youth at Star of the Sea. It is incredible being given the opportunity to delve so much deeper, and have the ability to learn ourselves from those we are mentoring.
Now we wouldn't run the ministries we have without the generous servant hearts of our core teams. All the work they do, helping us plan events, leading small groups, giving talks at programs, and too many other tasks to begin to list, is what truly makes our programs great. These individuals give their time every week to help us serve the community, and each one of them brings their own unique gifts to the table, without which, the ministries would not be the same. So to all of our amazing volunteers, thank you.
And finally, we are thankful for being given this opportunity to serve the community. All those who have made it possible, and continue to make it possible, for us to serve as missionaries have blessed us with this wonderful opportunity. We could never have imagined all the graces that God has been able to pour out on us through serving as missionaries here at Star.
This Thanksgiving, we will be keeping you in prayer, and we hope that you are all able to celebrate this time with loving friends and family.
