All The Roberts
I stepped out the front door of the new building and a little boy, worn shoes and dirty clothes, was walking across our parking lot. I greeted him and he immediately responded back with "it's my birthday". As I filled his arms with a case of sports drinks, I learned 12-year old Robert lived nearby with his grandmother, and desperately wanted someone to acknowledge his importance in this world. I paused and prayed, "God, let Youth World reach all the Roberts".
Youth World looks forward to the new challenges and opportunities 2013 will bring. We are eagerly awaiting our transition to the new facility and have made a list of materials and goods that will make our transition much more successful.
Please prayerfully consider how you might assist and sow a seed into the Youth World 2013 Transition. All donations are tax exempt. Youth World is also close to completing the Matching Campaign so your donation today could be doubled in value.
