Before we embark on our Action Team adventure we thought we’d share a bit about ourselves:
I’m Alex and I’m 17, which makes me the wee one in the group (by age not height). I come from Edinburgh, Scotland and I really enjoy playing netball and football. I chose to do Action Teams instead of doing sixth year at high school because I wanted to serve God in a new context and learn to love everyone the way He does.
I’m Rebekah and I’m from Yeovil. As I am 21, I am the granny of the group. In July, I graduated in International Development from the University of Reading. From a young age I have been interested in world mission, particularly within Africa. Therefore, joining Action Teams was a way to explore this passion further.
My name is Jack. I’m from Essex and recently finished my A levels in Maths, Physics and Geography. I’m 18 and chose to apply for Action Teams to grow in dependency on God, to widen my view of the world for what it really is and to practically make a difference in people’s lives. I love sport and I’m really excited to use this when I’m out in Mozambique.
I’m Andrew, I’m 18 and I left school in May. I come from a village called Inverbervie, which is about halfway between Aberdeen and Dundee in Scotland. I enjoy writing (which made me a good fit for leading the blog writing) and playing and writing music. I decided to do Action Teams mainly to see if world mission work is something I want to or am called to pursue longer term.
Above is our team verse. We chose this verse because it reminds us that God is with us helping us through every experience.
