Yesterday Sarah Atkinson and Page Reynolds were commissioned at the 11:00am service as they prepare to leave for Kenya as part of the internship program. They will fly out this Tuesday, the 19th, accompanied by Pastor Will and both their mothers. They will be serving in Kenya through December 19th, at which point they will come home for a short break and then return to Kenya in February to serve through July 2015.
Sarah and Page have both recently graduated from high school and felt led to participate in Bay Leaf’s Mission Internship program for this coming year. You can hear more of their story next week as they will be featured in the “Send Me” series and you can also keep up with them on their blog which they will update as they can while on the field.
Be praying for Sarah and Page, as well as their friends and family, as they make their final preparations to leave. Check back tomorrow for a full prayer guide update.
