My name is Rachel and I work for a ministry based in Tenerife called The Living Room (a project of Grassroots Trust Registered charity no.1060034). We are a missional community that seeks to reach the popular nightlife scene of Las Americas and the hundreds of British young adults who move here each year seeking adventure and a party lifestyle.
I am contacting you as I have been asked to come and speak about the exciting work God is doing here amongst the nightlife scene at Youth for Christ Commissioning Service and various other churches in October - March to encourage and excite young adults that God is at work in their generation and that they can be a part of it..
As I am in the UK I would also love to visit your church, cell group or gathering to encourage you and your young adults by sharing about the work of The Living Room, the young people who have given their lives to Jesus, the drug dealers who have been reduced to tears by the powerful words of Christ, the girls who have decided not to sell their bodies anymore, the heroin addicts who have come to us to enquire whether we think they still have a soul, the times when we have prayed with people in the middle of the madness of the clubbing strip, the people who have been convinced there is no God slowly starting to wonder what a living relationship with God would be like and how working here is just an incredible adventure with Jesus, one in which we never know where he is going to take us or what he is going to do through us.
I understand it is difficult when you don't know me personally and so have attached more information on the work of The Living Room, a reference letter and some quotes from young people who have worked here. You can also visit our website – www.thelivingroom.es or watch a video about the work of The Living Room here. Hopefully that helps you get more of an idea of who we are and what we do!
I am available from October 12th to late March and can share with you from any amount of time between ten and thirty minutes, at any type of meeting either at the weekend or mid-week.
I will contact you over the next few days to follow this up with you and answer any questions you may have.
