I did get the chance to spend two weeks in Toronto during July with all the YASCers and also a group of missionaries from the Evangelical Lutheran Church. We spent two weeks learning about what it means to be a missionary and what we can expect while serving others. Meeting and talking with the group from the ELCA was great because they had so much prior missionary experience. I feel much more prepared to go after these two weeks in Toronto.

Please take some time to read over the blogs below of the current YASCers. As I said, most of them leave this week and their blogs will be filled with great stories and great experiences. They need your support and prayers just as much as I will over the next year! Although we may all be serving in different places and doing very different work, we are all working toward fulfilling God's mission.
