“My life is so messed up.” So said one of the young people in this EVERY newsletter. Sadly, it could be said by millions of young people all around our globe. The truth is, in many ways, and at different times of our lives, it could probably be said by all of us.
That is all the more reason for us to praise God for his miraculous rescue through Jesus. We thank you, too. Because of your partnership, Youth for Christ is sharing that life-changing message with young people in over 100 nations around the world. And young people are responding!
This past year over 450,000 young people responded to the Gospel through Youth for Christ. Young people in Benin, Honduras, the USA, and many other nations; some living in tents, some living in mansions; some having never heard the name of Jesus before, some having been steeped in “religion” their whole lives – are responding and now walking with the living Saviour.
I love how the young woman from Benin said when she came to Christ, she was so excited she forgot about all her problems! We know not all of our problems disappear when we follow Christ, but praise God she, and we, now have Christ walking with us through the problems.
