Why are these
youth leaders from so many different countries coming to us for help?
It is because we have a forum at our web site for concerns just like
these. Since January, youth leaders have written over 1000 messages,
most of them questions relating to their ministry or personal life.
Although we have not met
most of these people in person, its been wonderful to see how
our web team has been able to help.
For example, Vicente, wrote us back saying that he took our advice:
confesseding his failure to trusted friends and church leadership,
steppeding down - at least temporarily - from his ministry position,
and together with his girlfriend is making some tough decisions. He
also wrote us that he feels much better now, knowing that hes
doing the "right thing".
feeling much better, having
chosen to do the right thing
Angelica said that
she decided to open her Pandora's box of problems after
noting that in our forum there were Christians who helped youth leaders
in tough situations instead of only condemning them.Her comment choked
us up because we so want that type of grace to characterize our lives
We know that
our responses to many of these situations are inadequate, but we find
hope in the knowledge that God is more than adequate and that He can
meet their needs through his Spirit and his Word. And we are honored
to be part of that process
