Brandon will graduate from college this month. He’s been on a few short-term mission trips and thinks God may be leading him into missions full-time. Is his lack of job offers an invitation to go overseas? Should he pursue further training? How will he pay off his college debt?
And what about his girlfriend Kelsey? Are they going to stay together? Kelsey has one more year, but then what? Will she go on to grad school, take a job out of state, or get wrapped up in the American dream and never give world missions another thought? What do Brandon’s parents think he should do? What do Kelsey’s parents expect?
As young adults like Brandon and Kelsey try to find their place in God’s plan for the world, they sometimes feel overwhelmed by advice, opportunities, and good causes to pursue. At the same time they may feel paralyzed, not knowing who to turn to or how to get there from here.
