It was so neat for Jonathan and I to plan all of the activities and use our skills from our time working at Miami University. Going into marriage, Jonathan and I both knew that we wanted to be missionaries. We also knew that the Lord had clearly lead us to Oxford, Ohio to take care of Jonathan's grandmother. It was in Oxford that we started working for Miami University's Outdoor Pursuit Center. One aspect of our job was leading small groups in doing team building activities. I remember thinking back then, Lord, how in the world will you use this experience to advance your Gospel? It just seems like we now know a ton of games. Two and a half years later, after the Lord transitioned us out of Ohio and into Costa Rica, we used those very skills to help our youth groupers bond as a small group and to build relationships where Christ is modeled. The Lord uses every drop of every experience for His glory!
