When the youth we work with each week come walking through those church doors, we must welcome them with an open heart and a warm smile. I say this because we never know what their day or past week has been like. This could be the only place that they will receive love and the needed attention that all kids need and seek. It is our Christian duty or obligation to give this to all our youth. We must continue to help the kids we serve build a lasting relationship with the best friend you can have, Jesus Christ .
