It's May, really, it's May! I cannot believe how time has flown. We have been so busy with so many activities that . . . well, here we are, May! In February we were blessed to have hosted our 5th Sweet-Heart Dinner. We all had such a great time: the youths who attended danced to the fabulous music of Billy Ray Sheppard and the Main Event Band. In February and March it was plan, plan, plan because we decided to participate in the Valero Texas Open "Birdies for Charity" program (golf tournament in April) and The Big Give 2016 in May. Billy Ray Sheppard did a benefit concert for YTIA on May 8th (Mother's Day). We decided that the proceeds from all of these activities would be used to fund our "Youth Explosion 2016" in July! What a blessing! We did not receive what we need but again we know that the Lord "will supply all of our needs according to His riches" so we are not worried. We have enjoyed meeting new people and working with "our" youths. We just keep "movin' on" and doing what we know is God's will for our organization! Thanks to all of the financial and emotional support we receive from those who love us and YTIA.
