I want to communicate my deepest appreciation towards my family at Tsawwassen Alliance. Over the years you have loved on me, supported me in many ways, prayed for me, and walked alongside me. My years at TAC have come with a lot of transitions ranging from going to YWAM to then taking on the role of overseeing Youth and Preteens. In these times of transition, you have remained constant support, and I want to thank you for that.
I have been overwhelmed by the generosity, encouragement, kind words, and prayer that I have received over the last few days leading up to my last day at TAC. These have been expressed through emails, cards, phone calls, and in-person conversations. All have been a reminder of God’s goodness in giving me a community I have come to call family for the last eight years.
As many of you know, I will be moving to East Vancouver to be closer to my new job at Union Gospel Mission. It is bitter-sweet to be moving. I am sad to say goodbye to so many of you and the community that has surrounded me for all these years. But I am also very excited to see what the Father has in store for me as I step into this new season, culture, and community. I do sincerely hope we can stay in touch.
Working for TAC has been far more than just a job. The Lord has used these last two years to allow me to grow in faith, trust, prayer, and worship. The hardships, challenges, and stumbles all have been used by him to draw me closer to His side. He has also gifted me with the opportunity for me to tangibly see Him work in mighty ways in all areas of the church. His fingerprints are all over the place and that’s only what He has allowed me to see right now. For all this, I am grateful.
Taking on this role here at TAC I felt very unequipped. I was doubtful that I would see growth in the ministry based on my own ability. But as I shared on Sunday, God grew this ministry in a way that I couldn’t take the credit for even if I tried. He is present, He is faithful, He is working, He is powerful, and He is oh so good.
To God, be the glory forever. Amen.
