Please be praying for our thanksgiving meal that we are going to provide for our high school friends on November 23rd. Fellowship Bible will be hosting the meal and our committee will be cooking and serving. For many of our high school friends, this will be the only holiday meal they receive so pray that they might receive a special touch from the Lord through our time together.
This past weekend we ventured to Castle Bluff in NW Arkansas for an incredible Polar Bear Weekend. There were over 140 kids there from Conway, Little Rock, Fayettville, Texarkana and Russellville. We have been taking kids for the past 13 years to deepen our friendships and give them an opportunity to hear about the God who loves them and the Son who gave his life for them. The leaders and kids had many spiritual conversations and those will continue throughout the year.
Thank you so much to everyone who helped with our Young Life Dessert. It was a wonderful evening and I feel like everyone there had some great desserts and a great time hearing about the ministry of Young Life! I wanted to say a special thanks to our three young ladies (Jordan Berry, Krystal Lopez and Stephanie Berry) who shared their stories with us. Praise the Lord for their transformed lives! Thanks also to our event sponsors: Luke and Kimberly Porter and The Kitchen Store.

Our high school friends had a blast at camp this summer! Many of them began a relationship with Jesus that is now a part of there everyday life! Please continue to pray for Ivan, Crystal and Stephanie as they are now walking with Jesus.

Here are a few of our kids on their graduation night!
I have known most of these kids since they were in the eighth grade. Many have come to know Jesus personally, but still there are some who continue to search for the truth. Please continue to pray for God to do a mighty work in their lives in the years to come.

We had a wonderful time with a few of our seniors the day before graduation. The food was incredible and the conversations were filled with memories from club to camp! Camp seemed to dominate most of the two hours we spent together. They talked about all of the fun: the ropes course, the blob, the bus ride, the hike up Sharptop Mountain, the rock climbing, the food and the friends! Young Life is all about relationships and I have a feeling that this group of kids will hold on to those for the rest of their lives.
