For the past eight years I have been involved in urban
youth outreach. Most significantly with youth at risk
(i.e. runaway, castaways, gangs and such). Currently
I work in the streets of Vancouver B.C. with a member
of A.G.R.M. We deal primarily with youth between the
ages of 13 and 25, most heavily addicted to crystal
meth and herion. As of current myself and my
co-worker see 400 regular youth per month and on
average 50 new youth per week, high transient rate.
WE serve a meal 5 nights a week preceeded by an
optional devotional time (10 - 15 min.) Optional by
choice, no one sings for their supper we simpy welcome
them without demands. THis approach seems to work as
we have more youth rushing in for the devotional than
leaving (by far I might add!) We would cherish your
prayers on a daily basis and ask that if you would we
would give you the name and some detail on a youth you
could intercede for. I hope to see a hundred people a
day praying for oour youth by name, what things can be
done when God's people pray! Amen? Any how that's
bout all I have to say for now. God bles you with His
wisdom, cover you with His love and guidfe you in His
peace. May you hear the soft pattering of sandals
worn by a carpenter where ever you dwell.
Having Fun In The SON!
