Last year, I ended up on this really cool trip for young adults affected by cancer. I met people that I'm going to know forever and made memories that I'll actually remember. It was an amazing week, but I came home thinking... where was Jesus in all of that? I had just started praying over the idea of a faith-based young adult cancer trip when I got an Insta message from a girl named Hannah. She told me a little of her battle with cancer as a young adult and then started sharing her newest, latest vision with me- a faith-based young adult cancer retreat. Only the Lord's timing, am I right?
Fast-forward almost a year later, I was boarding a plane to Carlsbad, CA, along with 24 other young adult cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers across the nation. The coolest part about that was that Spark the Way was able to sponsor 4 of those patients to attend this powerful week of connection, process, and worship.
Here's a small clip of one of our sponsored fighters from the weekend...
I love when Brooke says "People ask me how I'm not so fearful of my cancer. God didn't give us fear, but the ability to get to know Him and trust Him, and people need to know that." This girl received a calling on her life to preach the power that we have access to in Jesus during the cancer fight!
More clips and videos to come, but for now, thank you to ALL of our
supporters who create these opportunities for fighters and survivors
to process their cancer seasons, step into their purpose,
and find fullness in the face of cancer!
