CELEBRATE MEANINGFUL SERVICE I Social Roundup #yw2017

Celebrate our YouthWorks mission trip experiences and listen as God inspires you to seek out new and meaningful ways to serve in your community every day.

 

Yesterday we prayerfully sent off our last trip. It seems like each goodbye gets harder and harder, and I'm forever grateful to have served alongside the incredible participants who came on these mission trips. At the beginning of this summer, I thought I would be the one serving and teaching and leading and pouring out, but as I finish my time here I realize that I've learned so much more than I've taught. I've been humbly served by having my feet washed and been graced by the love and service of these participants. I have gained so much more than I ever would have imagined from my experience this summer, and I'm so thankful to God for showing me more of Himself through the participants, this community, and my team. I will never forget the faces and stories that I've encountered here in Columbus. I'm thankful for every single participant, service partner, community member, and YW staff who have supported and prayed for my team and I. All glory be to Christ! #yw2017 #godisgood #ohio #oheyo
