Saying Thank You!
YFC expresses their gratitude to Sam Wolgemuth who has served on the YFCI board for 14 years, 10 of those as Board Chair. This past November, Sam attended his last YFCI Board meeting and the staff and other board members had the opportunity to thank Sam and Mary Gayle for their years of faithful service and bold leadership. At the farewell dinner, Alfons Hildebrandt did an excellent job talking through almost all of the board members who have served during these years.
Saying Hello To…
As we said goodbye to Sam, we also said hello to our new Board Chair, Howard Stevenson who was officially voted in as the new Board Chair at the November board meeting. We are excited to see how the Lord uses Howard in this leadership position and words cannot express our gratitude for our entire YFC Board. Please pray for Howard and his wife Tracey as they are relatively new to the YFCI family.
We also have three more members joining our International Board:
- Nthenya Macharia from Kenya will begin serving as a Lay Trustee.
- Koekoes van As, National Director in Botswana, will begin serving as the Field Representative for the Africa Area.
- Jozef Gabor from Slovakia will be serving as a Lay Trustee.
