Following God's Heart
It is exciting to see people walking out what God has planned for their lives, but even more exciting when it is your family. Jason and Kelsey have an amazing youth ministry, they have great friends and are surrounded by family. That is why it is so thrilling for Jussi and I to see them walk out God's stirrings in their hearts and leave all that. As Jason prepares for life as a full time student in bible college and Kelsey a new job, and the opportunities for more education.
It makes us sad that they will be moving away but now we will have both Nick and Kelsey in Vancouver; a city we love to visit!
As they prepare their hearts for leaving and for leaving their ministries, we can only cover them in prayer. They have poured into the youth of our church and community and the youth can tell stories of the importance of Jay and Kels in their lives. It will be just as difficult for them to leave the youth as it will be for some of the youth to see them go.
To see a nation changed for Christ and mentor the next generation will be a calling that follows them, and we are excited to see how God will do just that!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11
