[TRANSCRIPT OF INTRO BY COUNSELOR STEVE]
Hello, there! We’re just about to join March, and we’ve just sent out the March Quest issues. If you haven’t received it yet, you will be receiving it soon.
You’ll notice that the theme for this year’s March Quest is Ukraine. Now, this theme was picked well over a year ago, and we were just going to highlight the clubs that we have in Ukraine, not thinking at all about how world events might happen. We know that Ukraine’s been in the news a lot, and we pray fervently for not just Pastor Zoltan and his Cadet clubs there in the Transcarpathia region of Ukraine, but also all the boys and girls of his church that sometimes join them on activities, and the people of the entire country as they are going through this time.
We really encourage you to use this Quest with your boys. If you’re one of the cadets and you’re watching this video, look at this Quest and think of the people that are there, think about what’s going on, and tie that into what we’ve been talking about all year – God’s in control.
We say that regularly here. I’m in Grand Rapids, but whether you’re in Canada or the United States, or if you’re listening to this somewhere else, it’s often easy for us to say, “God’s in control.” Think of how it feels for those people right now in Ukraine. Think about how it felt for Joshua – he was getting ready for a battle that he did not think he could physically win on his own and he was told by God, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord our God will be with you wherever you go.”
That’s our prayer for the people of Ukraine. That’s our prayer for all of us right now – that we realize that God is in control, no matter what the world looks like.
Enjoy your magazine! Enjoy thinking about the boys and the girls and the fun activities we see them doing in our Quest pages. Until next time.
