FROM BEGGING TO BIBLE STUDY
This summer I attended Youth for Christ Summer Camp in my nation. During “testimony time” I shared that the lives of all of my family members have been very different since Youth for Christ first came to my area. Because of YFC, my mother had stopped begging, and God provided. A few months later my mother told the Youth for Christ staff how God was providing and how she needed to know more about Him. YFC started giving our family Bible lessons. Our extended family started joining in this Bible study. God kept working and eventually thirteen families accepted Jesus. Please pray that I can continue to share the Gospel in my tribe.
DEVELOPMENT CORNER
Merry Christmas! Feliz Navidad! Joyeux Noël! Noheli Nziza! Bara Din Mubarrak Ho! You and I have so much to celebrate! Not only do we rejoice in the gift God has given us through Jesus, but we celebrate the many young people who are coming to follow Him. This year thousands of young people worldwide are celebrating Christmas for the first time knowing personally the One born in the manger for them.

I hope you have great joy knowing that you, through your prayers and support, are a part of reaching young people with that amazing message. What a privilege to be used by God in changing young lives! A year ago they didn’t know Christ, were lost, separated from His great love. But because you sent Youth for Christ staff and volunteers to them with the Good News of Christmas, they now know Him, have purpose, and are experiencing His great love for them.

The stories from Rwanda and South Asia included here are a tiny window into the breath-taking things God is doing around the world through Youth for Christ, through you! Over 247,000 young people in over 100 nations have responded to the Gospel message this past year through Youth for Christ. That is worth celebrating!

Likewise, we celebrate you. We rejoice in your partnership and we wish you a Christ-filled Christmas and blessed New Year.
