Hi Friends of Young life/younglives,
It is with great delight that I share with you my heartfelt gratitude for all that the Lord has done within the mission of Young Life/YoungLives in Central San Antonio.  I await with tremendous expectation for all that He has in store for this upcoming season.  Our new ministry has blossomed, with phenomenal volunteers, hardworking staff and He has changed the course set by the world, in the lives of teens and teen moms in central San Antonio.  I want to thank each of you for your faithful partnership with this ministry...both on the front lines and behind the scenes.  We will continue in His word as His disciples so that teens and teen moms will know the truth and the truth will set them free. (John 8:31-32) May God’s blessings abound and His peace be with you!

Eric Collins, Young Life Staff
My name is Eric Collins, Young Life came to my town during my senior year of high school in Blanco, Texas.  My leader, Chris Shipman, encouraged me to attend Younglife camp that summer. That is when my relationship with Jesus Christ began. I was a Younglife volunteer for 7 years and am extremely thankful I stepped into a full-time position for San Antonio Central in 2017!   My wife is a family and consumer science teacher at East Central and also volunteers with YoungLife.  Together, we will be teaching future generations about Christ and provide them with resources to achieve optimal quality of life. This year I hope to see growth in the number of leaders, so we can serve more students in Central San Antonio. This includes training past Younglife campers to become the future leaders of Younglife!

Young Life/YoungLives thinks the world of kids. We believe that they deserve to know what life can hold for them. Young Life/YoungLives leaders are caring adults who come sharing that hope as well as fun and lasting friendships with kids. Young Life/YoungLives is also all about fun. From Club and Camp to Campaigners and other activities, teenagers will have a blast laughing, trying new things and being with their friends.

Because of your support both financially and prayerfully
San Antonio Central kids had the amazing opportunity to attend Young Life Windy Gap 2018 or YoungLives Camp Buckner 2018 this summer. We were blessed to take 6 teen moms and ther babies to YoungLives Camp Buckner June 9-13. We were also blessed to take the right people to Young Life Windy Gap June 17-23. It was a spiritual battle for some from start to finish, but the Lord always prevails. Glory be to God!
