Hull Youth For Christ
Prayer Requests

June 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.

“But there's one other thing I remember, and remembering, I keep a grip on hope: God's loyal love couldn't have run out, his merciful love couldn't have dried up. They're created new every morning. How great is your faithfulness! ”
Lamentations 3:21-23

The community garden and Matt’s House garden which provide lovely outdoor spaces in the warm weather for groups to gather and learn.

The passion and energy of our parents to raise money for the work, in particular through the sponsored bike ride at the end of May. It is a huge encouragement to the team.

Prayer Focus

Many of you will remember Andy Tillotson who worked with us a few years ago. After a time, he changed jobs, got married to Sheena and has since returned as a Trustee. We first met Andy through Breakfast Club; he was a dialysis patient on the waiting list for a kidney transplant. He eventually had the operation and was well and active for a good number of years. However, recently his body rejected the kidney causing a lot of pain and fluid on his lungs. This has been a very difficult time for them. Sheena is trying to hold down a job whilst managing the children and the house on her own and Andy has obviously been very unwell but also very frustrated as he likes to pull his weight. Please pray for healing for Andy, strength for Sheena and also that a dialysis machine might be freed up so Andy can get treatment at home.

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.
