Yesterday we said goodbye to our third year Midlands Institute for Children Youth and Mission students. I am always proud of each group that leave, the journeys of growth and development they have been on but this group have overcome more adversity than most. Some from way before they ever started on the course, others from things that happened while they were on the course and some in between those things! It is the personal achievements I am proud of, there is some amazing academic work accomplished (which is not all about grades) but there are many lives changed because of the work these students have done.
I am so grateful to God for allowing me to be a little part of their journey and for the wonderful staff team I work with who offer so much support and encouragement to enable students to fulfil their potential.
Love the picture with the empty front row – some things never change!
