At FamilyLife®, God doesn't call the qualified, but He qualifies the called. When we signed on we had no idea what we would be doing, but we were certain that we would do what He wanted us to do. It’s been a great adventure!
As we prepared to report to our work assignments at FamilyLife®, we imagined ourselves filling roles we thought would fit us perfectly. However, God’s ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not our thoughts! He placed us in completely different jobs than we had previously imagined. Our initial positions were to help others do ministry. Scott worked in the Technology Department, where the job description is “partners enabling the mission,” and Fara helped develop training for regional staff members and volunteers.
However, in July of 2015 God called us to serve in the Live Events area of the ministry where we now work as a team to connect churches and individuals in South Texas to our Weekend to Remember® Getaways. We oversee 4 events (2 in Houston, 1 in Austin and 1 in South Padre / Rio Grande Valley). We continue to see God bring hundreds of couples to the events where they receive biblical instruction in how to succeed in marriage and leave a great godly legacy. In addition, dozens enter into a relationship with God every year! (See Our Top Ten Comments from the events.)
Our desire is to continue to allow God to use us at FamilyLife® in whatever capacity He chooses. We also wish to serve in our local church, and strive to be salt and light wherever we go in our day-to-day activities. We are enjoying this adventure on which God has placed us!
