YFCI: World youth organizations connect
Paul Fleischmann initiated a meeting with David Wraight, president of Youth for Christ International (YFCI). David had served in and later as Area Director of YFC Asia Pacific before assuming the role of president of YFCI in 2004. For the first time in many years (if ever) these two major world youth organizations compared notes about the countries they serve and shared contact information about leadership. Shortly after the meeting, David Wraight contacted his YFCI area leaders encouraging them to cooperate with the Youth Commission. He challenged them to “explore ways in which we may be able to encourage our national leaders to connect with their local Youth Commissions.”
In March the Latin American Youth Commission conducted 16 hours of training with 45 youth leaders. The training capitalized on the RAICES philosophy for Youth Ministry and was very well received. Eugenia Coto, assistant to Jorge Zuniga said, “Jorge is very satisfied with the training… we all are asking for miracles for our young people... only the Lord can do through His people what needs to be done!”
Eugenia sums it up perfectly. Let’s keep asking God for miracles in each of the countries we serve.
