Can you expect to invest a year of your life at Mentoring Timothy and come away changed and better for the time invested? Here is where we must be candid with you: we are incapable of changing you. Oh, we will pour ourselves out on your behalf, become like family to you, cry with you as you work through the sanctifying process of becoming Christ-like. Yet we count only on the Holy Spirit and God’s Word to bring about lasting change in your life. So, change will directly depend on how much of your heart you chose to surrender to Jesus. That is why part of our simple strategy is to give you lots of time alone with Him—time for prayer and meditation on what He is teaching you and how He wants to transform you. This is cool, we think, because as your mentors we don’t feel pressure to change you in whatever way we see best. Rather, we simply trust the Spirit to do the work that we’re incapable of doing. This eliminates the temptation to see you as a project that we can somehow mold and transform. Actually, because we will be doing life together, you will get a firsthand view of God molding and changing us as staff also!
