I first heard about Young Life in Africa through my boyfriend and his family last spring. Since then I have learned about the needs of Country X, its dedicated staff, and this opportunity to raise both awareness and funding. By “this opportunity,” I’m referring to my commitment to raise $0.50 for every foot that I climb of Mount Kilimanjaro this coming June. It’s important to know that all of the money my team and I raise will go to fund Young Life in Country X for an entire year! What a blessing it is to have the opportunity to do this alongside three of my best friends. Both of my parents were saved through Young Life, so I have seen firsthand the impact that this organization can have on generations. I’m certain that I would not be the person I am today without the impact that Young Life had on my parents lives; how incredible an opportunity it is to help implant and expand this organization in Country X for its future generations.
