Praise God! I just learned that there will be 51 United Methodist Youth Leaders at the two day retreat that I am facilitating early next week! We are also expecting more than 150 youth at EACH of the 5 one-day follow up sessions that will be held in the villages. This is more than double the number we originally anticipated! My initial budget for these gatherings did not include the cost of food for nearly this many people! In order to accommodate these 750 youth, we will need an additional $500. This additional money will keep us from having to turn away youth who have been looking forward to this event. If you area able to contribute, please email me and we will work out the details! My heart is so happy to know that God has given us the opportunity to make disciples and be a blessing to so many youth! Praise God!
