Review for Youthreach International, Grayson, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is my pleasure to tell you about the fantastic nonprofit organization, YouthReach International. I have had the great pleasure of joining YouthReach for two campaigns in the past seven years.

On my first trip, I taught English at a camp for children for three weeks. Our manual for teaching English was the Bible. We taught fundamental truths to them... forgiveness, grace, love, honesty and so on. It was a tremendous opportunity for me. I was able to see that God is actively working in all countries and not just in my sheltered community. I was in high school during that time and that was the most valuable lesson that i could have ever learned. YouthReach gave me this opportunity.

On my second trip, I stayed at one of their partner orphanages in Novosibirsk. I was able to interact with the orphans as well as their mentors. It was a huge blessing to be around the mentors, men and women who have a heart for God and for children. They are living out the mission of God. They are looking after those who have no one to look out for them. These mentors provide love, commitment, hugs, and so much more.

All I can say is Praise God for the group of people that make up YouthReach International.
