Young Life Update

One of our first clubs!

Halloween club last Wednesday!
We trick-or-treated on the 26th!
(And collected almost 400 canned goods in 30 minutes!)

The Lord has blessed Vail Valley Young Life so much this fall. We (meaning Justin pulling me along) decided that God was calling him to do Eagle Valley (just for down valley kids) YL this fall no matter what the sitution was with the rest of the valley. I am so glad that my husband is bold and in tune with God when I resist...what big ways God has been moving! We were blessed with free use of a building (Impact Ministries right next to the high school), sound equipment from a committee member, and an awesome Campaigner (our bible study leader-type kids) group that wants to step up. We have had five or six clubs and our lowest numbers have been in the high forties!!! So many kids are hungry for God's word and to find purpose in their life.

We do have some prayer requests so if you would like to partner with us in prayer,
that would be so sweet!

-Pray that our numbers would continue to be high so that the energy can be super positive and more kids can hear about Christ!
-Pray for more leaders, especially guys, that want to love high school kids at EV.
-Pray for our winter camp trip this coming weekend in Buena Vista at Frontier Ranch. Pray that kids would respond to the message of Christ and that kids would look past barriers that are holding them back from actually getting on the trip.
-Pray for the time we get to spend with our believing high school friends as we disciple them.
-Pray for us as we take on running this club. Pray for our preparation in talks, organization, and our own personal time in the Word.
-Pray for us as we take the initial steps of Justin taking a more formal role with YL (more to come on this in the future).
