Bittersweet SymphonyMay 27, 2008
That’s how I would describe my last official youth service here at Uturn. It was one of the most amazing nights, but I am really sad to leave these kids. If you didn’t know, I am moving back home in a few weeks to prepare and raise support to be a missionary in southern Africa. It was an awesome night. I got to share a short message, and explained to the kids how God was calling me to Africa. Then all 100+ students gathered around and prayed for me. It was powerful. People had some powerful prophetic words for me and others had great things to say about me. I was truly humbled. Then to cap off the night, I was pushed on stage to dance and sing during the last song, “You Deserve”. That was incredibly fun and a dream come true. I love music and worship, but don’t have much of a voice. This has been one of the hardest years of my life, but I feel I am closer to God than ever before. Like I said in my sermon, I am finally ready to give my life entirely to God and know that His way is best. Thanks to everyone who has impacted my life this year. I love you all.
