YOUNG LIFE

London Ashley Martin


WHY YOUNG LIFE, YOU ASK?

“BE COMPLETELY HUMBLE AND GENTLE; BE PATIENT, BEARING WITH ONE ANOTHER IN LOVE.” — EPHESIANS 2:4

WHY LONDON?

Because Young Life leads with love, which leads to Jesus. It operates as an afterschool program where kids are connected to meaningful experiences, connections, and most importantly, the good news of Jesus. Young Life was built to put kids first by loving them where they are and for who they are — no matter what. This is the kind of love that moves mountains and moves hearts. Growing up is hard no matter who you are, and Young Life provides spaces for all kids to be themselves, and to be mentored and supported as they grow and change.

WHY ME? Young Life was a big part of my journey as a high-schooler — it was the place I finally made meaningful connections that helped me grow in faith and in relationship with my peers and leaders. It was always a place where I went in and was loved for who I was. International School has another soft place in my heart too as I myself was a Third-Culture Kid or “TCK” while attending an International School in Munich, Germany, growing up. As a current graduate from a Biblical Studies program and a future attendee of seminary come fall

2019, I knew this next “gap year” needed to be filled with something meaningful that would help give some legs and experience to all of the head Bible knowledge I’ve gained over the years. Soon enough, the opportunity to head across the pond to London to work with Young Life at an International School presented itself, and I knew God had placed something very special and important before me. I am elated to get to work with all of the amazing kids who I know will probably remind me a lot of myself when I was their age.

The schools that Young Life operates at in London are International Schools; these schools are filled with kids from all over the globe — literally. The communities are often formed from expats or families that are living somewhere other than their home country. These schools are rich in culture and abundant with kids who have grown to be adaptable from moving around during crucial developmental years. These kids want to be known by their peers and adults — and Young Life is the perfect place to make this happen after school. Providing a place for these kids to be themselves after school is only the first step to communicating Jesus’s love to these resilient students.

FUNDRAISING VISION As a non-profit organization, Young Life and its staff members operate off the generosity of people who partner financially with us to make all the magic happen. These funds go to things like visas and cell-phone bills, but also to really fun things like service trips, Young Life club and area-wide conferences. In order to give my time completely to loving on kids in our programs, I am dependent on ministry partners to support me financially as I make the move to London for the next year. I am hoping to find a number of people to support me monthly for the next 12 months in order to sustain my ministry abroad this year.
