We want to introduce you to Kelley Coughlin, who (along with her husband Jim) has been part of the Neighborhood Church family for a long time! She volunteers her time to mentor teen moms through our local partner YoungLives of Tulare County! YL featured Kelley in the February newsletter!
In Kelley's words: "Introducing people to Jesus, that is what will last for eternity. As a child care provider in the teen parent program at Sequoia High School I am encouraged when I see one of our teen moms get her diploma, or see a teen dad learn to lovingly correct his child, and how we celebrate when a two year old ditches those diapers for good! But my deeper longing is that each teen and child comes to embrace the truth that he or she is a much loved creation of God, the ministry of YoungLives provides amazing opportunities to share this truth. Through on-campus Lunch Clubs, Monthly Club Nights, Campaigners
Bible Study, Camps and hangout times, I am able to care for teen parents not only as students but also as friends that I can introduce to Jesus. I am so thankful for the support and training that I receive from the YoungLives staff and my fellow volunteers." ---------
Way to go, Kelley, for being #forteenmoms and #ForVisalia!
