You Capture. Hands.

This summer at Youth for Christ one of our interns is leading a girls club. Each week she does a short Bible based message about being a woman of character, and then she teaches awesome and practical skills that most of these inner-city girls have never learned.

I have the honor of being her support and mentor for the summer, and have been blessed to sit in with the girls club every Monday and Wednesday.

Jackie is a Proverbs 31 woman to the core, and it is a beautiful thing to watch her share her time and skills with some of our junior high girls.

Over the course of summer she is teaching baking, sewing,

as well as some fun crafty things. This week the girls made picture frames.

I love seeing these girls being pushed each week to try new things. They really are stepping out of their comfort zones, and are so proud of their creations.

Yet another reason I love being part of Youth for Christ.

Your photos really do help tell the story of your friend's mission! How wonderful to have captured the teaching hands and the hands of those being trained. Great job.

Rebecca - thanks so much for your comment on my pics. Isn't it funny how olives need to be eaten off finger tips as kids! Loved stopping by your blog and seeing your pictures and hearts! My husband and I were missionaries for 6 years in Hungary, been back for 5 years now. I always love finding people with a heart to serve! Bless you as you serve Him!
