After a successful spring season running the Elementary After-School program at the Kingswood Youth Drop-in, and an exciting summer of activities with youth in the Talwood area, we’re looking forward to the next season with those we’ve connected with.
It’s been beautiful to see the ways that God is working in the lives of the youth in the Talwood area. On the last day of the Elementary After-School program in June, one of the youth said “Maddie, I’m going to pretend to be you.” I prepared for potential embarrassment. To my amazement, he began to recount the gospel to us. This solidified to me that the youth were really taking in all that I was able to teach them, and that God is moving within them.
During the summer months, we partnered with Cephas Church to run a kids’ cooking program. This was a program that God truly put together, and at the end of the summer three of our youth committed their lives to Christ. I know that as we kick off our fall programs God is going to continue to work in marvellous ways, and I can’t wait to share all that He does this year.
