Receive Easter Greetings from AAYMCA
I am inspired by the sacrifice that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ made on the Cross for our redemption. I am also reminded of the sacrifice that our founder George Williams made for the redemption of young people across the world, undoubtedly inspired by the life of Christ.
This is also an opportunity for us to introspect on the progress we are making as a Movement. Our service is in the backdrop of the huge challenge of a rapidly expanding demography of youth in the continent; by 2050 a quarter of the world’s youth population will be African!
As we celebrate Easter, let us also celebrate the successes of the Y3.0 strategy, the creation of new National movements, and the strengthening of others across the continent - enabling us to reach more young people. Let us also use the ongoing chartering process to prepare for the General Assembly and to reflect on the need to strengthen our approach and improve delivery.
May God bless you all and I look forward to a fruitful General Assembly in June
May you find the renewal of hope, health, love and the spirit of God. Happy Easter to you and your lovely family.
