Can you feel it? The days just got longer, the California sunshine came out from hiding (finally!!!), yes, spring is almost here! What that means to YoungLives is that we are in the midst of so many fun and exciting plans! Starting with the Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast, Teen Prom, Summer Camp, Baby Bottle Fundraiser, Fall Kick Off Training, and even the Annual Giving Gala is already in the works. We wanted to share some ways that you can become a part of YoungLives events. If this is the year that you planned on becoming more involved, just do it – the Lord will meet you in it. You will meet some of the kindest, Jesus loving, self-sacrificing people ever – not to mention we really have a GREAT time together!
