E.F.Y. - Especially for Youth 2011

Our ruth is heading to EFY this week for those not familliar with the abbreviation it stands for Especially for youth and is a five-day, overnight program which begins on Monday morning and concludes early Saturday morning. Youth have the opportunity to learn and grow together while attending classes, devotionals and firesides together. Highlights of the week include Family Home Evening, dances, a musical program, a games night, service projects, a variety show, good food, and a testimony meeting. The main benefits are new friendships, strengthened testimonies, and lasting memories.

EFY is a youth program with the objectives to encourage, assist, and guide youth participants (ages 14–18) as they strive to “come unto Christ.” EFY creates a setting where youth have the opportunity to develop spiritually, physically, intellectually and socially. EFY programs are held throughout the world every summer and are attended by more than 50,000 youth. Sessions are primarily supervised by young-adult counsellors between the ages of 20-30 and who are positive role models for the youth. All sessions are directed by adult instructors. Activities include Scripture Study, devotionals and firesides, family home evenings, dance, testimony meetings, variety shows and so much more....

I'm so excited for her.... she came back last time so full of the spirit and excited to live and learn the gospel.  This time she will be going to Nottingham University.

Have a great time ruth we'll miss you and love you.
