This group of believers is making a tangible difference in the community of Kleinmond, South Africa. They are also one of the first 12 stories of our local leg, The Big Story SA. We talked to them about this year's Holiday Club and what they have planned.
1. Tell us a bit more about Lig Youth’s mission
In short, we want to see kids prosper in every area of their lives, Spiritually, mentally, socially, physically and financially. We desire to see them REIGN IN LIFE.
2. What is the theme behind this year’s Holiday Club?
The Day programme is for kids aged 2 to 13 and the Evening program for the teens age 14 -30.
Our day theme is GotaMove- in step with the Holy Spirit. Our evening program PS. THERE IS HOPE includes Drama- Spirit of Python, Sex Talk and a Performance by Rap Crew NBJ.
3. Why Kleinmond?
It is where we live. The kids in the area are part of our lives! We interact with them nearly every day, we see the hurt and the hunger for love in there lives. For us Kleinmond is the pilot project and we desire to be able to host HOLIDAY CLUBS in many different areas THROUGHOUT SA AND EVEN ABROAD in the future.
4. How can the international community get involved to help?
Prayer, prayer and more prayer! Standing on the word of God to see these young people's lives transformed. And then there is Finances. We believe in sowing and reaping! Sowing into the HC, is sowing into fertile soil and there will be a harvest!
5. How has the youth responded to the Holiday Club over the years?
Absolutely awesome! Every year far surpassed the previous one! We expect between 450 and 500 kids during the day programme and 150 to 200 during the evening programme. The kids love it! As do we.
Please join us in prayer for this year's Holiday Club which is happening from 1st - 5th July. If you'd like to get in touch with Lig Youth please contact them via one of the links on the right hand side.
