Merry Christmas!

          Trevor King, 9th grader at FCHS, was the victor of the first Young Life Mr. Elf Christmas Pageant last night! This"Android Elf," in android character all night, was the landslide winner!  Amidst all the laughter & excitement of the pageant, the highlight of the night for everyone was hearing from Randall Hale, as he shared his testimony to over 150 attenders.  "There is nothing like the love of Jesus," Randall shared as he explained that he felt empty in his quest to find full life in golf and video games a year ago.  "I first came to Young Life because there was a girl there I liked... but it was the talks at the end that really got me."  Randall shared that it was a year ago today, December 4th, that he started a relationship with Jesus at Fall Weekend (Young Life Camp), and how he's experienced a full and purposed-filled life since then.  Randall and others share their story in this video also shared last night: CLICK HERE FOR YOUNG LIFE VIDEO!
        As we're winding down to the last 2 Clubs of 2012, we still eagerly expect that kids, "being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ" Ephesians 3:17-18.
