The annual Morden Youth For Christ (YFC) banquet wrapped up Friday evening the Morden Mennonite Church.
Staff and volunteers shared their passion for Morden teenagers at the casual annual-general-meeting type event. One young woman, Arial Giesbrecht, was the main speaker.
"They changed my life," said Giesbrecht. "That's my family."
Giesbrecht has spent the past two years or so travelling around the world as a missionary. She worked with sexually-exploited women and children in Cambodia, prostitutes in Las Vegas, and taught Biblical studies in South Africa.
"When I come home from overseas, [YFC is] the first place I go because it's safe, I know that I'm loved, and they are committed to me as well."
