BENEFITING: Young Life

EVENT: Climb For Country X

EVENT DATE: Jun 21, 2016

Ben Pinkston

THE STORY:

I first had the honor and privilege of experiencing Younglife in Africa and climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro back in 2014. It was absolutely a life changing experience. So much so, that I decided to go back and do it again, however this time being the goal to raise money and awareness for the leaders of Younglife in a specific country in Africa. This country must remain unnamed due to security reasons, but I can promise you that these leaders put their safety and well-being aside so that they can reach out to and change the lives of thousands of teenagers. With Younglife, they bring hope and happiness in a world where fear and oppression is the norm. We are climbing this mountain, not for our own goals and pleasures, although it is a tremendous experience, but in order to provide leaders of Younglife here the tools needed to do what they do best… Introduce teenagers to Christ and change their lives forever.

  I believe that there are very few times in life where you get the opportunity to directly contribute to something that is changing people’s lives for the better. Younglife in Africa is one of these opportunities. Please join me in raising support, for something that is bigger than ourselves.
