Over the course of this week we're asking you to pray for the different aspects of our work. All the photos on these blogs will be used this week to inspire prayers of Hope, during our prayer events. At the end of the week, we'll be selling them to help 'bring hope to young lives If you'd like a copy of any of these photos, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

American Businessman and author Harvey Mackay said ‘Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.’ east to west are blessed by our team of volunteer’s willingness to use their time to support the work we do. They support us in various ways, supporting students 1:1 and in small groups in schools, working with young people aged 10-25, in the Emerge project, or based in the office supporting the day to day admin of the charity. Our volunteers bring with them a wide range of skills and experiences which massively enhance the work we’re able to do. This is highly valued by both the east to west team member they work alongside and the child, young person or family they support. Please pray for:
