SANDY – DIRECTOR
'I’m Sandy, I have now been director of the Shrewsbury youth mission team for just over a year. This year has been amazing filled with so much joy and so many happy people. I joined the SYMT from a schools background where I worked as a school chaplain. I have also worked for many years with the Salesians of Don Bosco, so naturally St John Bosco is very close to my heart. I can't wait to see all that God has in store for us this year.
I love the great outdoors and walking. I also like sitting back with a good book; this year I’m aiming to read one book every month. Spending time with family and friends is important to me too.
One of my favourite scripture verses is Pilippians 4:13:
'I can do all things through him who strengthens me.'
I chose this bible passage because it reminds me that everything we do is because of God and it is through the love of God that I get my strength every day.
