I had this dream earlier this year (school year i mean not actual 2017). A little side note before I get to the dream, during this time I was trying to become an AWANA leader at my church, but they never said I got into the program or I didn't (still haven't heard anything). So in the dream I was lead to a room by a friend. I stepped in and we had Joyce (the one we go to if wanting to be an AWANA leader) and two other people. They were talking and Joyce told me to step forward. As I stepped forward I heard one of the other two say "this is wonderful." At this point I'm confused and Joyce turns to the person that just spoke and said "I may cry." She steps closer to me and hands me a folded up piece of clothing. When I unfold it I realized it was a shirt that the sparks leaders wear. I hear Joyce say "you made it you'll be withering with the younger kids." I was so disappointed when I woke and I still never heard anything.
