In case you're not aware, Samantha Duncan, our new Administrative Assistant in the church office, began her first week of work on Monday. To help you get acquainted with her and welcome her to the church family, here's a quick Q&A that will introduce her to you:
Q: Help us get to know you a bit. Where are you from and what have you been up to the past few years?
A: I moved to Lafayette from Evansville, IN, where I've lived for the past 7 years. I came to know the Lord my freshman year of college at USI, and was so lovingly surrounded by the body that I stayed after graduating. Just recently the Lord has brought me to Kossuth, and I'm excited about this new direction he is leading me in.
Q: What are your interests and hobbies? What do you enjoy doing for fun?
A: I love anything that involves being outside, from playing to pulling weeds. I really enjoy hiking and exploring new places, so moving to a new city is an exciting thing! Music, movies, reading, drawing, dancing, and board games are some of my favorite ways to pass the time, but good coffee and conversation is the best!
Q: What are some of the reasons that you're excited about joining the Kossuth staff team in this new role?
A: I'm incredibly grateful for the way the Lord has so obviously directed and provided for my transition to Kossuth. I have great confidence in Him and peace in His plan. The body at Kossuth has shown me so much hospitality that it feels like I've never left home. The church I came from and the church I find myself in now are filled with his Spirit and people who long to seek out and run after the King, and that makes my heart glad!
Q: How can our church family be praying for you as you transition into your new role?
A: So much has been provided for in big ways, and I'm thankful for the grace I've already been shown. Please pray that in all things I would be diligent to seek the Lord and His Kingdom first, that I could be attentive to the details and needs of the church and a good support to those in leadership.
