Why Mattias Ekkert is Sleeping Outside
About a year and a half ago, I started a job as a Youth Pastor. Since then, I have spent several hours a week thinking about, praying for, and spending time with high school students. My heart has grown exponentially in compassion for these kids and the challenges that they and their peers face day to day.
I know the importance of having a safe place to be and I see the difference it makes in the lives of young people. If spending a night outside can provide that for even one student, then I am happy to do it.
Please join me in meeting the needs of vulnerable and at-risk youth that they might have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
