I’ve looked forward to being in youth group for as long as I can remember. Next year I’ll finally be old enough to go to PLUG. Now I heard that my church is looking into getting a new youth pastor. I always wanted my dad to be my youth pastor. Everybody loves him and I love him too! And now after years of waiting, he may not be my youth pastor.
I decided to talk to him about it. He told me he isn’t sure what will happen. He also said that while there is a chance I’ll have a different youth pastor, he will always be my dad. That made me feel better. Then he told me about Travis French, the kid that helped him start this youth group from scratch over 15 years ago. He said that God may allow me to be like Travis and help him start a new youth group from scratch – only in Portugal.
I guess I’m OK with all this. It’s not my decision anyway.
