March 2018

Hull Youth for Christ works in the Boulevard area of West Hull with links to other ministries across the city. Please support our work through prayer to see changes in the lives of young people and their families who face many challenging circumstances.

The Easter Fair on the 20th. That the Mum’s will grow and thrive as they take responsibility for it and that it will be a fun community time and successful fundraiser.

The meal we organised just before half-term to celebrate the teachers at our local primary school. Thank God for the money provided to do that and for how moved and encouraged the teachers were.

Give thanks for the £2000 already raised towards building a mezzanine floor at Orts to give some much needed space including room to develop social enterprise ideas. Please pray for the provision of the £18k still needed.

Prayer Focus

We were first introduced to Patrick and his Mum at a difficult time in their life by the local primary school. Soon after this, Patrick was taken into care and Breakfast Club became the location for some of their contact sessions together. Patrick also joined Monday Club and his weekly time with us here became some important consistency at an otherwise turbulent time. His foster carer came to describe the group as his little family. A change of foster carer and ongoing assessments and court dates to try and provide long term stability for Patrick mean that life continues to be very chaotic for him. On top of this problems with transport provided for him to get to Monday club has meant, for the time being at least, he is unable to attend the group. Please pray that he will soon be back with his Monday Club family and that a stable and loving long term solution for his care can be found.

Thank you so much for your prayer support, it is such an encouragement to us and so vital for the work that we do here.
