This past Saturday, hundreds of youth, young adults, and their leaders took to their community in a joint effort to share Christ’s love with those that may feel forgotten during the hustle and bustle of the season. Since getting started in the Central Territory, USA West has taken on the “I’ll Fight Day” challenge for five years, and this year was by far the biggest showing around our territory.
Only two days after I’ll Fight Day, we are estimating approximately 500 youth from 40 different corps took part in service through many different outlets – bringing lunch to the homeless community, working at animal shelters, setting up toy distribution warehouses, cleaning the streets of their neighborhood, serving at shelters, and many more.
We are incredibly proud of and inspired by this next generation and their selfless faith that they have put into action. It is our hope that the spirit of fighting for the lost, broken, lonely, and unsaved extends well beyond this one day, and we pray that this special day emboldens them to continue to build up an army for others.
