Meet the other YASCers: The Diocese of Western North Carolina Contingent

You can check out all of the YASC missionaries' blogs by exploring the links on the right side of my blog. In addition to featuring my fellow Episcopal young adult missionaries there, I want to call your attention to them in a series of blog posts.

I'll begin by introducing you to the two other current YASC volunteers from my home diocese, the Diocese of Western North Carolina. Will Bryant, from All Souls' Cathedral, and Jared Grant, from my home parish Trinity Episcopal, are serving in Hong Kong and Italy, respectively.
Will Bryant is serving with Mission to Seafarers, one of the oldest Anglican Ministries in the world. It was established in 1856 and provides various forms of practical, emotional, and spiritual support to 1.3 million sailors in over 260 ports around the world. You can check out Will's blog here: I'll let Will Bryant tell you more about his experience in this new video about him from the Episcopal News Service:
Jared Grant is in his second year serving with YASC. His first year brought him to Lesotho working with the Anglican Diocese and St. James Mission Hospital. He is currently serving at St. Paul's Within the Walls and the Joel Nafuma Refugee Center in Rome, Italy. The refugee center provides support to political refugees that arrive in Rome from all over the world, especially Northern Africa and the Middle East. You can check out Jared's blog here:

The Episcopal Church engages in this world in amazing ways. The Young Adult Service Corps is just one example of the far reaching, intimate, and powerful engagements of Episcopalians within the United States and around the world. It's such a privilege to be serving in this program with these guys. Keep checking in for more updates about other YASC missionaries and continued posts about my experiences in Haiti.
