it’s hope anew on God…” Psalm 78:4,7 (NLT)
In Psalms 78:1-7 we are reminded of passing on God’s truth to the next generation so they in turn will tell each generation to “set it’s hope anew on God.” THIS is our goal as we lead a Royal Servants mission trip to Scotland this summer! A recent email from former student Lizzie Wirgau, captures how we are doing just that! Here is Lizzie’s story:
“There are few things I really feel strongly about and believe in as much as I do Royal Servants. As intense as my 6 week mission trip was, I honestly think that my Royal Servants summer in 2006 was the most formative point of my high school years.
Royal Servants taught me to surrender my comforts and future plans to Christ. In that sweet surrender, I was able to be obedient to the call God had on my life and anxious to be His hands and feet to the world. The month I graduated from college, God lead me to start a non-profit organization that helps African widows, refugee women, handicapped, and orphans, to market hand-crafted products to the world through an online store!
I know that learning to surrender and be obedient and willing at 16 years old truly shaped me into the woman I am today, 7 years later. It gave me an “extreme” mindset… I saw what “selling out” for Christ looked and felt like. I would never trade that summer with Royal Servants for anything!”
Hearing Lizzie’s story is living proof of God’s work through Royal Servants in reaching a new generation for Christ. This will be our 8th summer serving with Royal Servants – wow God has been so good – and we are excited by what He continues to do each year to reach a new generation. We are happy to be a part of it!
I will be serving at our missions training camp for the month of June and Jenni and the family will be traveling with me and the students on our mission team for the month of July in Scotland & England. Our family feels strongly about the importance of this work and we ask you to stand with us in your prayers and giving. We look forward to how God will once again provide.
Thank you for helping us reach the next generation of students, like Lizzie, and those we serve around the world!
