This past year I have been working to get my accreditation for YFC. This met going to Banff and Hamilton for training weeks, as well as reading a bunch of different books and writing a few papers. I will be honest and say that I usually have a bad attitude but I found that the assignments for the most part were applicable and thought provoking. I really appreciated the new friends that I met at the training weeks. After I had completed all the work for the accreditation I was able to accept my certificate in Kelowna, the location of this years national ministry conference. The part of this process that I appreciated most was the new friends that I made along the way, from the instructors to the fellow YFC missionaries that were working alongside me.
