Abby “On Mission for Life”
Abby first came to Mission Arlington with her Kansas youth group twice when she was younger. She had been working in small ministries back home. After a missionary talked at her church, she was sure God was calling her to go and do more for him.
About the time Abby was trying to figure out where to go, “memories” started popping up on her social media of her time in Arlington while friends were also posting pictures of Arlington. So she said “Ok, God. I’ll look into it.”
Summer of 2020 became the moment that doors opened for Abby to spend a few months here. She helped in our food pantry and at two Bible Study locations, in Arlington and Grand Prairie. Abby valued the connection she made with people, and she loved sharing her faith.
Abby returned home in August to finish her high school senior year. Her original plan was to be a park ranger and work in the mountains, but now she feels like she will be “on mission” for life.
Abby says, “Everybody is different but they all have that same need of Christ. It’s really cool to be a part of that.” We thank the Lord for sending Abby. She made a difference here, and we look forward to seeing how she will serve the Lord in the days, months, and years ahead.
