Agape Youth Update 3/27/17

March 31, 2017

Dear New Hope,
This Saturday we had our second Agape Youth Purity Seminar. The purpose of the seminar was to give the youth a biblical understanging of sex, marriage and purity. We had 9 boys and 15 girls make the pledge “Purity Code” to keep themselves sexually pure for marriage. They were given purity rings and necklaces and certificates as a reminder of their promise to God. This kind of teaching on purity goes so far against everything that is experienced in Havana, where sex outside of marriage is the norm. Not only that, where young girls give away their bodies for some bread or alcohol so easily. Our prayer is that the youth will be salt and light as they live lives of purity in devotion to Christ, shining the light of the gospel in the darkest places in Havana. Please pray for these kids to be given grace and faith to stand against the culture and resist temptations that are all around them.

God’s love,

Steve
