Serving others a major focus for YWIM Award winner

Young Woman in MIssions Award 2022

During the spring Celebration of Women dinner, the John Wesley UMC presented West Ashley High School Senior Janine Dial with the 2022 Young Woman In Missions Award. Julie Moxley presented the award, a cash prize and flowers to Janine on May 9.

Janine has attended John Wesley UMC since she was a toddler. Since her first MayDay PlayDay, she has participated in the full range of children and youth events.

In terms of mission work, Janine began with Benchwarmers in 7th grade. She has also worked on mission outings to Salkhatchie and helped with breakfast at Star Gospel Mission. Like many other John Wesley youth, Janine has helped with Vacation Bible School and Kids Ways To Praise.

Her mother Carol Dial said, “Janine has learned so much about giving of herself to be a foot soldier for Christ. We are thankful for David Boudolf and the opportunity he and his leaders have provided to show her Christ’s mission.”

At West Ashley High School Janine has played varsity tennis for three years. She is a member of the Students Advocating for Multicultural Education (SAME) and past treasurer of the Art Club. She also works at Middleton Place Plantation assisting with weddings and serving as a hostess.

Janine will enter the University of South Carolina in the fall where she has been accepted into the Rising Scholars program within the Darla Moore School of Business.
