One Interesting Fact about Haiti's Youth Ministry

The Youth ministry here ranges from the ages of 13-30 years old! (at least in the Wesleyan church).
"Jr. Youth" are roughly from 13-19 and "Sr. Youth" are roughly 20-30 years old.

This group seems to have the reverse problem of North American churches.  They have stronger sr. youth ministries for 20-30 year olds but are hurting for jr. youth ministries from 13-19 year olds.

Cool God Moment: There was a huge break through "a-ha" moment across the crowd this morning when Carl challenged the 20-30 year olds to act as though they've "graduated" from youth and realize it's time to step up as responsible leaders for the 13-19 year olds.
 The Night Meeting Space
I've just finished up my second day of teaching, and just caught up on sleep.  
(2 sessions per day for 5 days, an hour & a half each session)
I'm loving being with the Gilles family, John Vermilya from KBM, and the Caton's Island team.
