Tessa Nelson was a beautiful soul with a deep and compassionate heart. She loved to laugh and bring joy to others. She loved the Lord deeply and was eager to learn and grow more in Him.
Throughout her time on her EY2S mission trip, she encouraged our leaders, brightened the day of our staff, cared for the members of her youth group, and poured out her love on everyone that she served, especially the kids during Bible time at VBS.
We are saddened to lose Tessa, but we are grateful for the small bit of time we got to spend with her and for the impact she made on this ministry.
"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalms 34:18
