Burundi, Czech Republic, Germany, South Africa... God is at work all over the world through Youth for Christ International. You, as one of our partners, play a vital part in reaching young people with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. Thank you!

Scripture says “When he (Jesus) saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” (Matthew 9:36) Looking around our world today we see so many young people just like that – lost, confused, without hope, and sometimes without a place to sleep or food to eat.

Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for having compassion on them. Through Youth for Christ you are meeting physical, social and emotional needs, but most importantly you are introducing them to Savior who loves them and gives them hope. It is that love and hope that can encourage them in their walk with the Lord. This particular update (the EVERY) comes out a few times a year, but rest assured it is only a small glimpse of what the Lord is allowing us to do with your support. I would love to share even more with you and hope our paths cross soon either in person or in another form of communication. It is my sincere hope that these stories encourage you and bring you joy.

Dave Brereton, International Director
Youth for Christ in Germany regularly hosts South African iThemba teams who share the gospel through music, drama and dance. Pray for this creative outreach and the young people both in the group and those experiencing their programs.
You are invited to come see what God is doing around the world through Youth for Christ! Join us this October as we take a journey to Cyprus and Lebanon to see what God is doing there with young people.

Beginning on the beautiful island of Cyprus you will visit sites from Paul and Barnabas’ first missionary journey, see the ancient tomb of Lazarus, and see first-hand some of what God is doing through the clubs, rallies, and prison ministry Youth for Christ is involved in here.

From there it is a short plane ride to Lebanon, a land rich in Biblical history, cultures and traditions. You will get to walk some ancient ruins, enjoy delicious Lebanese food, and also see some of Youth for Christ’s work in a refugee camp and their reconciliation center.

This Cyprus and Lebanon Vision trip is for adults only. It will be from October 1 to 10. Cost is $2,150 per person including accommodations, airfare from Cyprus to Lebanon, local transportation and guides, and most meals. You can find more information online at ; by emailing Jen Olive, Youth for Christ Event Manager, at ; or by contacting Bryan Blomker, Director of Development, at or 320-224-7268.
