Why Mentoring?God gave me the verse in Psalms 71:18 about 12 years ago and I have made it my motto. I believe we are to be purposeful in passing along the torch to those coming up in ministry behind us. I had the privilege of mentoring several young adults in Kenya and now that I am about to retire from the mission field I would like to mentor others who feel a call to missions or ministry. I also feel it's important to pass along life skills to those coming behind us.

All these helped me to develop myself so that I could be an instrument in helping others develop in the Lord. I have used the Strengthsfinder survey to guide young adults in knowing who they are. I have also used the Spiritual gifts survey to help them learn about themselves and their gifts.
