It reminds me of the quote from A Tale of Two Cities: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." There were probably times this year that I’m sure the Fellows were thinking the same thing.
But isn’t that how all of life is? Wonderful things happening alongside painful and hard things. But it’s walking through both that grows and strengthens us.

Danae joins us from the great state of Oregon. She graduated from college in 2014 and has spent the past two years working with junior high and high school students. Wanting more clarity of where Jesus is calling her, she decided to join the Charlotte Fellows program. She is so grateful for a year set apart to learn more of what it looks like to follow Jesus in the context of such a supportive community.
