Our high school youth ministry is called Flipside. This is mainly for those who are a part of it, but feel free to take a sneek peek inside. You can also respond as well.
Those of you who attend Flipside know that Brian has been taking us through matters of the heart. The DTL - define the line - having conversations about how we plan to live our lives in purity and most recently about generosity.
We have the opportunity to make an impact on the world. An impact both here we we live and far away. Imagine if we were a youth ministry known for its generosity. Imagine if we were a youth ministry known for its sacrificial giving! That would be AWEsome!
As you have also heard: Kynzi, Grace, Kaylee and Karston are all on a mission of making an impact in a village in Burkina Faso west Africa! They are raising money to build a well for a village there. 1 out of every 3 people in Africa die before the age of 10 because they have to drink dirty water. This will physically change the lives of the people in this village. Yes, there are other things that could cause death, like anywhere else, but this is something they are doing. IT WILL MAKE A LIFE CHANGING IMPACT on many people!
That inspires me...
Does it you?
You can give money to help build this well and take care of filters for families. I understand it to be around $1200 to build this and then $60 a home for the filters. Today we brought in over $350!!! The kids have already brought in over $500 and have at least another $200 on the way. We are almost there! It's not too late to give. We will have an offering "bucket" at the front of the room for several weeks.
Let's make an impact together.
