as God would have it, I'm going to be involved in a huge load of work over the next few months. I'm speaking at a youth conference on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, sharing my testimony and leading workshops for youth. Then on Sunday evening I go to a remote northern community (I'm already considered to be in a remote northern community to you guys :P) for a suicide prevention summit over the course of a week. The area of mental health is very underfunded in First Nations communities, and with a lack of preventative support, suicide is unfortunately very common.
I go to the summit with a small group of youth, where we will drum and present a movie that documents the impact of suicide in my own home community. It's been very successful to raise awareness of the current situation that many First Nations communities face. It's been a long, hard road for many of the leaders that will be attending, so pray that they are given the strength needed to make decisions appropriate to their community's situations.
Pray that I have the words to say in my speaking sessions, and pray that hearts will be open and ready for healing, or the hope of healing. On top of all of this, I begin my final semester of high school on Thursday... So pray graduation would go well, too.
Thanks so much to anyone who reads this and your prayers, God bless you.
