This Wednesday we had a large youth group from a local area church come out here to the Missionary Training Center. We sang some songs with them, shared some testimonies, and then told them a little bit about tribal missions. I have really enjoyed playing with the praise band (we will be visiting several churches this spring, leading worship, and telling them more about NTM and missions work with unreached people groups. My time here as a student will be over in just a few short months. As always, I really appreciate your prayers.

A couple weeks ago we took some of the kids from our youth group (in Camdenton, MO) to a youth conference (Dare 2 Share) in St. Louis. This was 1/2 of them. The guy in the front is Edwin, the youth pastor (his wife Liz is behind him in the white coat). The kids were challenged and came home with a renewed desire to share the gospel with their friends at school. Pray for me as I continue to work with these kids, that I would be able to encourage them in their faith during my short time here in Missouri. These teens have become friends of mine and it has been such a privilege to be able to help with the youth group.
