Originally begun as a discipleship group for Karen youth, International Youth Group has expanded to include students from several of our church plants and beyond– representing 7 different countries, at least 8 different languages and many different religious backgrounds. God is truly working among the students as they gather on Friday nights for games, worship, and Bible study. There is enormous potential for the group to grow in many ways.
Since January, Katie has been leading the group with the help of some of the older youth. However, more workers are needed as the group expands both in number and in activity. The youth are eager to participate in service projects and in outreach events, but often it is not logistically possible with only one adult leader.
- Please pray that God will send workers that would be able to help with transportation, “crowd control,” and discipleship.
- Pray especially that God would send at least one strong male role model who could pour into the young men and boys.
- Pray that these workers would invest in personal relationships with the kids and their families.
- Pray for Katie as she leads the group each Friday night.
- Pray that the youth would continue to grow deeper in their faith and would be eager to serve others.
