At our monthly Hlanganani mentorship group session this month, Ryan focused on teaching our 30 or so tweens and teens the importance of making the right choices in life! (This is a common, ongoing theme!) We always incorporate time for group discussion, providing them with an opportunity to talk through the realities of what they face each day with a mentor and how to make good decisions in light of the daily negative influences that they face.
(Our goal is to have no teenage pregnancies this year and no school dropouts due to drug use! PLEASE help us pray for the kids to make wise decisions for their lives.)
We meet with the littlies (11 years old and younger) on a separate day each month (to that of the teenagers); this helps us to focus on their specific needs, help them with their English skills (reading and writing) and speak into their lives at a level that they can understand!
