Dwain Upton - Young Life


Last Sunday you had the opportunity to hear from Dwain Upton about God’s leading in his life to go to Portugal with Young Life. He will be working with college-age young people, both in developing relationships with a view to sharing the gospel and in discipling those who are already followers of Jesus. This matches closely with what he has been doing with Young Life here in Lee County. An example of the impact Young Life has had on one young person is seen in this thank you note...

“Hello New Hope!
My name is Samantha. I just graduated with a 4.00 and honors three months early. I have been a part of Young Life Fort Myers for the past three years. It’s been the most amazing thing in my life. Thank you so much for your gift to help us go to Sharp Top Cove this year! I can’t wait. Camp is one of the best weeks of my life. I greatly appreciate you. Thank you!!!!

We want to encourage you to pray for Dwain as he heads to Portugal. If God puts it on your heart to help with his support, you can give online to support him below.
