From Jean Baptiste Mugarura, National Director
The team in Northern Rwanda recently held a week-long camp for 100 young people. The camp was followed by a training of 1,300 Pastors and youth workers from various churches in the Eastern Province where Youth for Christ conducted training for pastors and church leaders on sexual purity among teenagers.
The training basically calls young people to be followers of Jesus Christ. Then, Youth for Christ mobilises the new young believers to abstain from sex outside marriage and to challenge their friends to make the same decision. The overwhelming success of this approach is largely why so many churches are coming to Youth for Christ for help.
