Hey kids and youth (and parents of them too!). Here is a great little initiative that we are spearheading that is going to build a youth centre in the village of Gatlang in Nepal. The whole village was destroyed in the earthquakes last Spring. Many of the people in the Gatlang Vineyard did not own land, so the Earthquake fund has purchased new land for homes to be built on. One of the plots of land has been set aside for a small building to be built in which children can have a safe warm place to play and for the youth to hang out. There are a number of other Vineyard churches in Canada who are also contributing to this project.
Jodi will be letting all the children and youth know that they can contribute to this project during the next two Sundays. Collections will be taken on Sunday, January 31 – so make sure your children and youth remember to bring some donations at that time. Every little bit helps!
