Perhaps a pretty flyer will entice you

Why I want to be a YAV:
I am embarking on a journey. In this next year of service with YAV I will experience new opportunities for growth, see the world in a different light, and be challenged in ways I have yet imagined. At a conference last summer I felt truly moved and inspired by the keynoter’s accounts of working in ministry in the Tucson border area. He described the dire situations, the struggles, and the hope the immigrants had in a better life in the United States. His stories of selfless compassion and living by the greatest commandment- “to love your neighbor as yourself” called to me. I wanted to be a part of this, and very soon I will be a part of this. I will be exploring the call of the gospel in the social and political realities of the border area.
