Missions Monday

20 Dec
It’s time for Missions Monday.
Every Monday I will introduce you to some great charities that you and your family can get involved in. When I say get involved, I mean you can donate your money, time, and/or pray for these organizations who are doing amazing things to help people.

After reading an incredible post from Chad Swanzy (A Charge to All Youth Pastors), I knew I had to introduce you to YoungLives.
Here is just a bit about it from their website:
Teen moms face many challenges because they are truly living in two worlds. They have the desire to be a teenager, yet have all the responsibilities required of motherhood. They feel alone, and often are abandoned by the significant people in their lives once their child is born.

The world sees a teen mom and her child. We see a girl who needs Jesus. YoungLives is about loving teen moms in the midst of the circumstances they’re in – no matter what they are. Because we’ve experienced mercy, compassion and grace through a relationship with Christ, we desire to love teen moms in the condition they come to us.

 Here are a few ways that you can get involved:
Mentor



Being a mentor means loving a teen mom right where she’s at in her life… becoming a trusted friend who models Christ’s unconditional love and shows her what life is like when you are walking with Christ. Teen moms need women to help them have hope and look forward to a future for themselves and their children.
Donor

Young Life relies on support from faithful donors to provide for the needs of teen moms. Your financial partnership ensures the ministry’s growth and allows us to continue the work of investing in the lives of teen moms.

Childcare


Quality childcare is provided at YoungLives club and other events so that teen moms are able to develop relationships and have some time away. This is an opportunity to invest in the growth and development of YoungLives children.
