Young Life Africa, Expeditions
First of all, I want to thank you for RMPC's support and encouragement of me and YLXA. It is support like yours that enables us to continue to grow and expand the scope of our service to the African YL Staff, year after year, so that we can bring more people to experience the awesome work the Lord is doing today across this continent through the mission of Young Life! In 2014, Young Life Africa Expeditions sent 17 Trips and 214 people from all over the US beyond the comforts of home to serve in 6 African Countries including Tanzania, Kenya, Liberia, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and Sierra Leone! Thank you. Thank you for choosing to respond to the Lords' call to serve and be engaged in this mission with us.
In 2014, Young Life Africa reached 354,984 kids across 22 different African Countries. 42,217 of those kids had the opportunity to attend a YL outreach camp where they had the best weekend of their life hearing the gospel from the leaders who have invested in their lives. Marty Caldwell, Executive Vice President of International Ministry, shared with us last week at the YLA Committee Meeting, the number of kids that went to camp in Africa would have filled every bed at every camp in the US this summer. YLXA had the privilege to send teams to serve as work crew at 14 different camps in 6 countries. Your support has played an integral role this great story.
