Erika & Jenny: Two Years Of Swedish Youth Work With Forge Youth
Two years of youth work with Forge Youth has now come to an end for us. We started off as Form interns last year and now we finish off with Jenny having started a new youth club in Norton Lees and Erika as a key leader at Revo in the last year.
Forge Youth has taken us on a journey of stepping up in our leadership. This has meant sharing our faith and trusting that He would be the one actually speaking. We have also been on a journey with God, learning to obey Him in everything. We have had to step out in our faith, trusting Him that He will always come through with what we need. When Jenny started the new youth club God said: "Nothing is too big or too scary". And He has truly been faithful. The fruit we have seen during these two years is incredible.
The team has impressed us with their commitment and perseverance together with the sense of family they carry. They have always had room for fun, but are still running after Jesus and everything He has for them.
Now we will leave this safe shore to continue our journeys over the sea with Jenny going to Australia and Erika to Sweden. We will miss all the incredible young people we have met and the snacks at the Wednesday morning meeting (and maybe the people as well!).
