Last night Liz and I had the joy of attending the annual banquet for CHOSEN. This is a ministry at Olive where the adult ladies teach the younger. The target group consists of high school girls. They meet weekly on Monday evenings. The ladies who are mentors spend time with their small group of girls and no topic is too tough to handle. They listen, love and encourage the young ladies. It is fantastic.
At the year-end banquet, recognitions were given to girls for attendance, scripture memory and other items of faithfulness. I was greatly encouraged to see the young ladies who participated express gratitude to leaders who had poured life into them. This is discipleship with excellence. Christi Tyner is the leader and does a faithful and fun job of directing the CHOSEN ministry. In years to come we will see strong, Christ-following women come from this group.
