I always appreciate when people ask me to share about what God is doing in the lives of youth through London Youth for Christ. In 2015 we reached over 1,200 youth through a variety of programs and community development. For some youth it was the first time they heard that they had personal value. For others we were able to come alongside them as they worked through the daily pressures of just being a teenager. In each relationship we were able to offer them the hope of Jesus through our actions and words.
Just before I left for a Christmas break, I received a card which read . . .
“YFC is a great place to feel safe and protected as well as a place to vent and more forward. Thank you for all our talks and helping me figure life out. I don’t believe I have had someone to talk to that can relate and have so much compassion and understanding about what I’ve gone through. Thank you so much!”
It is unsolicited notes like these that are so encouraging to receive from young people. God is using us to bring the love and hope of Jesus to youth in our city.
I hope as you read this note that you are equally encouraged. This is “our story” of reaching and empowering youth. Your support makes it possible for us to journey with youth each day and connect with Christ. That is why I pass along this note from a YFC young person, to thank you as well….
