We had one of our youth families share with us a detailed prayer request for a trip that they were going on. Their situation involved many logistical details, physical challenges, and spiritual requests. I was truly encouraged by their list and their updates- This family had such a genuine desire to lift up their needs to our God and to include Him in all that they were preparing for. The result is an email today that was filled with how God answered these requests. It is so encouraging to me personally to see a mom and dad thank God for all that He brought to them- all the experiences that they were able to have, all the conversations that it generated, all the relationships that they were able to make. I count it a privilege to be included in people’s lives as they share with us what they are learning and how God is working. It is a lesson for me!
