Living God's Love Values - Generosity, Joy, Imagination and Courage

A group of 25 young people from St Paul?s Church, St Albans including 16 youth aged 14-18 are going to Chennai in July for almost three weeks.

?

The trip is to assist with the ministry to street children in Chennai run by Youth with a Mission, Chennai. They will also help in local slums, performing acts of service to improve the lives of people living there.

?

Noah Mitchell, the Youth Worker at St Paul?s will be leading the trip. Jan Nicholls from Youth with a Mission in Harpenden will accompany them.

?

The young people are fundraising for the trip and have already raised ?4000 towards the ?25,000 total, about ?1000 a head.

?

For that money they won?t be staying luxuriously. They will be staying on the YWAM base run by local people from Chennai.

?

They recently held a lunch for 150 at St Pauls?s which raised a substantial portion of total raised so far. They served an Indian meal to their guests.

?

Some of the people travelling say their motive is to ?Experience a different culture,? others want to ?Help the poor.? They all want to go out of their comfort zones and challenge themselves. Noah, who has also not travelled to Asia but has been to Africa, says ?Our primary focus is transform the lives of the young people so that they can transform the lives of others. We are serving in a long line of outreach teams that are core to the ministry of YWAM in Chennai.?
