Your prayers and gifts are appreciated!

Lacy Schimmel was selected by the Presbyterian Church (USA) to be a Young Adult Volunteer for a year starting in August. YAVs live in the community they serve. Lacy will be joined by YAV Lauren LaMonica and the two will serve in various community-based ministries in Chinook, Montana. 

YAVs need to raise money to help with their year-long expenses. Funds are raised to support programmatic expenses, as well as stipends, health insurance, and food allowance. Any funds raised beyond the needs of the individual volunteer are used to support other volunteers and the general YAV program in Chinook.

Lacy explains how her decision to be a YAV came about:

Last summer I was a chaperone for Triennium (the national PC(USA) youth gathering) and the week's message was "GO". I learned about the YAV program from one of the booths in the exhibit hall. So as the week went on I kept hearing the call to go and do good, go and spread God's work. By the end of the week I knew I had to look more into the program and after looking at all the sites decided that there were a lot of great places that I could serve. I applied and got accepted to the Montana site which was my top choice. My full time job for the last 4 years has been working at a day program for adults with special needs and they have taught me that I can do any thing I put my mind to. So I'm taking a leap of faith and moving to Montana for a year.
