Another successful trip is in the books. With 121 students, this trip was a little different than most. Having 16 group home students whose funding for the trip was pulled two weeks before leaving for California, makes for an opportunity for God to show up and blow us away, again! With the provincial budget cutting the funding for these youth it made for a tense situation as the low Canadian dollar was already stretching a thin budget, and with the news we might lose 16 students, it was a interesting couple of weeks.
What this did for us was it made us realize the importance of prayer. After praying and seeking God we were all at peace that the Lord knew exactly what was going on. So as we (Saskatoon & Regina YFC) raised money, God provided almost three times what was needed, Praise God!
As a result, a lot of students were able to hear about our Lord for the first time.
