well now that it is official...

I am staying in Albuquerque.

God has called me to take on being a youth director here in this fine city for the church that I currently work for. It has been an amazing journey for me as I have struggled with figuring out just exactly where I need to be in ministry, and I am beyond excited now that I have made the commitment. I will be starting after I finish up my US-2 assignment at the end of July.

I have been richly blessed by my time in the ministry I currently work in, but it is time to do something that I get excited about. And for me, that is youth ministry. I have felt and understood my calling to young people since I was in youth group, and of course everyone questioned that because I couldn't know what it was like to do ministry with youth until I wasn't a youth anymore. I planned my degree to complement the youth ministry I wanted to eventually do, and so now I get to use it.

I'm excited about the possibilities I have with the current ministry and am really excited to do some new innovative stuff. I already have an awesome connection with the youth here so it should be a pretty smooth shift. It is hard for youth to get a new youth director, but hopefully this transition will be easier than other transitions I've heard of.

So yay for awesome jobs and knowing what I'm going to do when I am done here!

If I may be entirely selfish and cold-hearted... I'm so happy for you! Because as exciting as a move would have been, I'm just glad you ain't going nowhere anytime soon. Now the real question is, when can I come over and kick your butt at Wii Sports? :-)
