Reaching to Russia - Hope Abounds

Hope abounds not only in the lives of the orphans and mentors in our host countries but in the lives of me, our staff, and our Board of Directors.  Hope is alive my friends!
It’s because of the impact of our male mentors in Novosibirsk which has been a major prayer point the last 5 months.

It’s because of the stories of faithful supporters like Cheri Raines who was highlighted in our newsletter last week.
It’s because of the 7 current donors who saw that highlight of Cheri and wrote me saying, “hey, when do I get to tell my story of why I stand with you in this ministry?” 
It’s because of a young man named Micah who sent in to our ministry $568 to be used in an exciting event we have coming up in November called The Orphan Sunday Cake Auction
It’s because of a Board of Directors who are totally bought in to the vision and future of this organization and stand with me in every way I can imagine needing them to.
It’s because of two little girls who know beyond any doubt in their hearts due to their parent’s failing them that they are loved, cherished, and cared for by our mentors.
It’s because Chick-fil-A and Winshape International and the International Leadership Institute and Reconciliation Church in Novosibirsk and Reconciliation Church in Bobruisk and The Peachtree Corners Rotary Club and the Young Men’s Service League of Atlanta and a family in the United Arab Emeritus and Campus Church and 2 Rivers Church and Otter Creek Church all stand with us with their resources of prayer, expertise, encouragement and finances. 
It’s because I’m learning to dream again and believe that God’s desires for YouthReach International are so far beyond what we have seen with our eyes thus far. 
Above all else, it’s because we serve a Lord who beat death, who beat hopelessness, who beat the enemy that still rages but whose destiny is known and sure.
Hope abounds because Jesus is Lord.
Yes, that’s the real reason for my hope and I pray you have it too.
