Thanks for actually reading my first letter and not letting it sit in a pile of unopened mail on your
counter! This first month working at Youth Unlimited had been fun, encouraging, challenging,
and humbling. I want this newsletter to not just be a quick update on how I am doing and what you can pray for, but I want to let you in on the story of it all too.

Throughout history soldiers have used battle cries as a way of embracing their mission and motivating themselves into action. The ancient Greeks shouted out the name of a female deity, Alala (which meant war cry), medieval crusaders bellowed out "Dues vult" (Latin for God wills it).

This is a phone call I had last week with one teen I’ve spent a lot of time grieving with in the past few months:

Volunteer Opportunity: if you have an hour or 2 of free time in the next few days. We have about 200 letters that need to be stuffed and sealed and put in the mail. It's small job but would be a huge help to our staff. -Derian 604-813-1117
