Highlights from our 2016 Annual YFC Banquet
Thank you for joining us and all your support at this year’s banquet! It was so encouraging to see a full house on November 7th at our annual YFC banquet. As we took a look at how we could come alongside and support youth in our city, we quickly saw how each of us have
The Slow Cooker Effect
They were chopping, slicing and stirring up ingredients to get the food ready for the slow cookers. From the outside, it looked like just another young moms slow cooker class. (A class where young moms, connected through Streetlight, come to our collective kitchen, prepare a healthy meal together using a slow cooker and eat it
Do you remember your first job?
That feeling you had when you received your first pay cheque? I was recently reminded of that moment when I dropped Jen off at her home and she yelled out to her boyfriend, “Hey hon, I’m working now and I have money!”  Jen had just finished helping serve at our new Café Connect for a
YFC Summer camp wins over cottage and speed boating
Summer is hot and cool at YFC! I hope your summer is going well and that you are taking time to slow the pace down a bit, get energized and refocused for the fall. Here at YFC, we are in full camp and community mode.  Summer is a great time to develop new relationships with
A mid week encouragement!
A few weeks ago I had the privilege of joining other Londoners for a prayer breakfast at the Lamplighter Inn and Conference Centre. A couple I had not met before was sitting at my table.

Home in the storm . . .
The wind was howling outside and the cold rain was pounding down, but the family gathered in the RV were together and safe in the midst of the storm. This was my experience with Streetlight this past Tuesday evening. With the torrential rain already starting, I wasn’t sure how many would be coming out to
A Story from the Streets
Entrapped between two fears . . . I always enjoy spending time in the various ministries that go out from London Youth for Christ. One of those is Streetlighth, a mobile youth centre that sets up downtown and allows us to come alongside several hundred at-risk youth. While our Streetlight Director is on leave, I
“Home” For Christmas
This past Monday we tested out the new kitchen in our (almost completed) Café Connect. We prepared a Christmas turkey dinner for many of the youth we journey and their families.
