Being an American missionary in Scotland, Melanie has always seen Young Life function in an 'American' way but always wondered how it could work in a UK context. Melanie recently had the opportunity to attend a Young Life club in Northern Ireland, and by her own words was left breathless by the experience. Over 130 youth gathered in a small church hall, and amidst the usual games, skits, and songs, prayer was a central part of the night's festivities.
Melanie was surprised to learn that groups from this club meet during the week to pray over the weekend events, and many even meet before the weekly club to pray for their non-Christian friends who will attend that night.
