Since coming to RBI, there have been many challenges that I have had to face. Moving far from home to a new area with no support system that I once had, was hard in itself. I have learned that there is a completely different culture here that I have to adapt to, new people and different viewpoints. But this is a critical time in my life; God has sent me out on my own to take that next step in my Faith, so the challenges are only going to grow me into a better leader. The pastors here have taught me so much in just a short time, and I am blown away by all I’m learning. I have had a hard time here, but I had an awesome encounter one Wednesday night at Student Ministries when Pastor Allen prophesied over my life. It was confirmation that I am called to be a youth pastor and this is my new season to grow and let go of some things I’ve been clinging on to. It’s so awesome to see what God has been doing in such a short time with me at RBI, I can’t wait to see the change in me at the end of this year….Adrian R.
