I recently attended two graduation parties for two of the teen-age girls I've had the privilege of mentoring for the past six years, Rachel and Lindsey. Eric and I have been youth leaders for 10 years, and graduation is always a bittersweet time for us. It's fun to see the teens get their diplomas and head off to college, but it's also hard to see them go. (I can't imagine how their parents feel!) Anyway, it's been a blast getting to know these two girls, seeing them grow up and grow to be more like Jesus. When that happens, it's very rewarding to a youth leader. Here are a few pictures: Lindsey, Rachel & I, and Lindsey with Amber & Autumn. Congratulations, grads!
