Our Thanksgiving Service: A Celebration of God’s Faithfulness

We Have Come This Far by Faith!

Thanks Be to Our God!

December, 2023

“We have come this far by faith, leaning on the Lord, trusting in His holy Word, He’s never failed us yet.” And He Won’t!

As we bask in the afterglow of our recent Thanksgiving service, our hearts are brimming with gratitude and joy. The service marked a significant milestone in Youth Mentoring Ministry’s journey, our 7th year!

In 2015, we embarked on a mission fueled by faith and a deep desire to serve the youth of our community. Looking back, we see a tapestry woven with challenges, triumphs and God’s grace-His unwavering faithfulness has been our anchor.

This special service, held on Sunday, November 5, was a tribute to the goodness we have witnessed. It was a moment to pause, reflect, and give thanks to God for His steadfast love and unending mercies.

Highlights of the Service

  • Joyful Worship: Our hearts and voices united in songs of praise, creating an atmosphere filled with the spirit of gratitude.
  • Special performances from our mentees
  • Testimonies of Grace: Current and former mentees and parents all shared personal stories of how God’s love and YMM’s programs have transformed their lives. These stories were not just encouraging; they were a powerful reminder of the actual and potential community impact of our Ministry.
  • Special message from the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Dalas Dickenson
  • Ministry of the Word by Pastor David Goode of Worthington Friends Church in Kingston
  • Fellowship and Lunch

Special thanks to our loyal supporters, members of the private sector and local government, and to all who  contributed  to making this event a success. Your ongoing commitment has been pivotal in reaching this milestone!

As we move forward, we do so in faith, with renewed strength, and a deep desire to continue spreading God’s love and light to the youth in our community. We are excited for what the future holds and invite you to continue this journey with us!!!
