Hi, my name is Brittany Peyton, and I am from the United States. Doing ministry here can be quite interesting and challenging. It is difficult to reach many people because there are so many diverse beliefs here. Especially, where I am located. It is so small that almost everyone knows everybody, literally!

My pastor is the one who appointed both my husband and I to doing youth ministry. She noticed from the start that I had a passion and soft spot for children. Obtaining a scholarship from CLI would make my walk in youth ministry easier.
