Petra came to Label of Love when there had been a big change in the staff team and things were looking very unclear for the future. She stepped in to run REaction and developed it around her own creativity and ideas. It was not an easy job but she stepped up to the challenge wonderfully and kept REaction and Label of Love’s other work going, eventually being joined by Adam. As they settled in to working together, the world was hit by Covid and the team had to rapidly change and adapt. Petra again stepped up and stepped right out of her comfort zone to learn how to deliver REaction, Collective Worship and other things in front of a camera instead of face to face. Petra has shown tremendous grit and determination during her years with Label of Love as well as a strong faith, creativity, and desire for children and young people to know they are loved and valued by God.
It is sad to see Petra leave but we are grateful for all she has done and pray that God will bless her even more in the next period of her life. In the meantime, Adam will deliver our work for next term as we think about how things might look in the coming year.
Without Petra Label of Love would probably have come to an end several years ago, and we are grateful for all she did then to keep things going and develop new ways of working. Farewell Petra, and God bless you.
