Fiction: Inescapable by Nancy Mehl. At eighteen, Lizzie left her Mennonite hometown, her family, and her faith with plans never to return. Five years later, Lizzie finds she’ll have to run again. False accusations at her job, a stalker, and a string of anonymous threatening letters have left her with no other options but to return home. When it becomes painfully clear that the danger has followed Lizzie to Kingdom, Lizzie will have to run one last time–to a Father whose love is inescapable.
Growing Up Amish by Ira Wagler. One fateful starless night, 17-year-old Ira got up at 2 AM, left a scribbled note under his pillow, packed all of his earthly belongings into in a little black duffel bag, and walked away from his home in the Amish settlement. This is the true story of one man’s quest to discover who he is, where he belongs, and includes stories from his childhood in the Old Order Amish community.

Announcement From the Arborg YFC Steering Committee (The Bridge Youth Centre):
Effective December 19, 2013, Kellie Shore, Director of Arborg Youth For Christ, has submitted her resignation.
In her resignation letter, Kellie notes that her position requires a great deal of commitment, something she feels she is unable to provide until she completes her education. “My education is incredibly important to me… I am feeling the pressure to finish my degree as soon as possible.”
The steering committee respects Kellie’s desire to do the right thing – for herself and for Arborg YFC, also known as “The Bridge Youth Centre.” We commend her passion, enthusiasm and desire to love the youth of Arborg in practical ways. We wish her well and appreciate her eagerness to serve.
We urge the community of Arborg to assist YFC in finding suitable candidates for two positions: one, to serve as the director to provide administrative leadership and to oversee fundraising initiatives; and two, a program coordinator to work with volunteers to connect relationally with teenagers.
Job summaries are available at http://ArborgDirector.com and http://yfcArborgProgramCoordinator
