BCHS graduate Katlyn Nobles was going to follow the path of other students. Attend Middle Georgia College. She enrolled in MGC in fall of 2011. But something changed. It was her desire to follow her faith to wherever it led her.
Via Facebook message, Nobles recalled feeling "out of place" there. She attributed a pair of Bible verses to her decsion to withdraw from college last spring.
"I had no idea where I would go but God revealed to me through His Word Deuteronmy 6:5 & Jeremiah 29:11. I have seen and read those verse before, but this time, I realized something new. If God knows the plans that HE has for me plans to prosper me than why am I doing what society says to do? I only attended college right out of high school because, well, that's what you do, right?
While Nobles did work part time as a receptionist at H & R Block , it was her only "set plan" Even then she said she had seen the Lord had ordained how she would recieve her plans for prosperity (referenced in Jeremiah 29:11) She decided to forego or halt any plans for college. Since then Nobles said "I have seen the Lord's faithfulness like never before."
She led Bible studies for girls weekly at BCHS and also applied to a pair of Christian summer camps. Winshape, located in Rome, GA as well as Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters in Andrews, NC. Nobles was accepted at both. She was also accepted as part of the Samaritan's Purse Youth Team and traveled to Mongolia this summer to deliver shoeboxes of toys and supplies as part of Operation Chirstmas Child.
Nobles said her experience in Mongolia not only opened her eyes to another culture, it also showed her "the need to love one another above ourselves, to share the Hope that we have in Jesus Christ to those that are in suffering circumstances (poverty.)"
She did become an intern at Snowbird and is there now. She works with churches and schools at the retreats they host throughout the year as well as helping to clean and learn about upkeep of the camp grounds. An annual trip for Snowbird staff is to Honduras to visit Emmanuel Orphanage. One that she says "He opened the door for me to go."
