During our topic meeting on Tuesday, September 27 Jill Bevins from YoungLives Ministry came and spoke to Mom's Connection.
YoungLives, part of the larger Young Life Ministry, helps teen moms find hope through mentors. It's about letting teen moms be teenagers and providing someone to walk alongside them to help figure out who they are and who they will become. It's about modeling Jesus Christ's love to young women who may not have experienced real love before.
Jill shared with us how this ministry is growing in Berkeley County and is being blessed by the hand of God. The mentors are the heart of YoungLives and they are currently in need of mentors. Being a mentor means loving a teen mom right where she's at in her life...becoming a trusted friend who models Christ's unconditional love and show her what life is like when you are walking with Christ. Teen moms need women to help them have hope and look forward to a future for themselves and their children.
YoungLives meets every 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at Rosemont Grace Brethren Church in Martinsburg, WV from 6-8:30 pm where free childcare and a free meal is available.
