"...so they can come to know Christ early and not have to experience the hopelessness she experienced as a child..."
One Youth for Christ kids club meets in a poor village on the outskirts of the capital city of Tbilisi in the nation of Georgia. This club is run by a young couple who are passionate about reaching the kids of this village.
The wife grew up in this village in the midst of abject poverty, with an alcoholic father, and found herself in a place of despair and hopelessness. While in her early teens she was invited to a church meeting where she found new life and hope in Christ. She is now pouring her life into the children of the village so they can come to know Christ early and not have to experience the hopelessness she experienced as a child.
It is heart-warming to see the love this couple convey to children who are responding with joy to the songs, games, crafts, Bible story, and a hot meal.
