One of the things I’m hugely thankful for since moving to Vancouver are the people I’ve met here. It astounds me how quickly a community can form & that a long period of time is not always the prerequisite for a close friendship.
I had a pretty fantastic crew in Sydney who I miss dearly (if you’re reading this, I love you & sorry for taking forever to reply to your FB or WhatsApp messages), so I was fairly nervous about starting from scratch & building this in my new home.
YWAM is a pretty close-knit bunch, we operate like a family, it’s great. Most of us aren’t from Vancouver or even Canada. We are all very much in the same boat, having packed up our lives and moved from a different part of the world.
I’m in awe of the people who have come into my life, whether that be for just a couple hours, a day, a few weeks, months – there have been encounters with people that have been nothing short of divine, as I see God in the richness of these short yet deep relationships.
