The Lost and Found

Updated Feb, 26th 2013

Presentation Title: The Lost and Found

Core Message:  Never lose hope of your dreams. A person without a dream is a person who is without hope.  The driving force to helping us go through the ups and downs of life are our dreams, our goals, our visions.  When we lose sight of where we are going, it makes where we are seems even worst.  It's said in the bible without a vision the people will perish. This core message will help the youth remember that as long as you've got your dreams in sight, you'll always have a reason to fight.
