While I was visiting a city in Canada recently, I went on a journey to find a special coffee shop I had heard about. A friend had mentioned it was a 30 minute walk, which seemed reasonable. When he offered to show me how to get there, I gladly accepted the offer. Soon, we had a whole group of us following this coffee shop guru on our trek through unchartered territory. We chuckled as we realized we would follow him anywhere he went because we believed he was leading us to get coffee. At Central Alberta Youth Unlimited we know that youth have many influences and pressures that pull at them. There are many cultural trends, influential people, and desires that will lure them to follow, but we are convinced that there are no greater footsteps to follow than those of Jesus.
Our team here at CAYU seeks to walk closely to His footsteps so that as we connect with youth, they would encounter Jesus and His incredible love for them. Please pray for our staff, that we would be spiritually vibrant and intimate with Christ as we live out the ministry of Hope and Wholeness for all youth.
