Youth in Action in Wyoming » The Sheridan (Wyo.) SDA Church invited Anne Greet from the Buffalo SDA Church to come and give her testimony. Anne's title for her presentation was "God Loves Through His Creatures." Anne brought along a host of caged friends: a gecko, chicken, mouse, hedgehog, rabbit, tarantula, and her beloved dog, Pepsi. Anne shared the unique abilities God has instilled in His creatures to love, survive, protect, and demonstrate how God does the same for us. The Sheridan congregation was asked to participate by reading many Bible texts that pertained to His creations.
Anne is a home-schooled high school sophomore. She and her parents, Shane and Heide, have gone to Honduras and Page, Arizona, on mission trips with the Wyoming Waldensians. Thank you, Anne—all were so blessed by your wonderful presentation.
