Team Xtreme in Rezina, Moldova!

While visiting my friend in Rezina, Moldova we were invited to attend a seminar/performance at one of the local high schools.  This was a REALLY great organization that works throughout the world to spread the positive messages of love, tolerance, patience and kindness through Xtreme sports.  It really had an impact on the young men in the audience that is for sure!!!  The man who organized the competition asked me to translate for them but instead we asked one of my friend's best students to translate to give her an amazing opportunity to show off her English and Romanian/Russian skills in front of all her friends.  Afterward she said it was "such a rush!"

Team Xtreme is part of Youth with a Mission.
Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to presenting Jesus personally to this generation, to mobilizing as many as possible to help in this task, and to the training and equipping of believers for their part in fulfilling the Great Commission.
As citizens of God’s kingdom, we are called to love, worship, and obey our Lord, to love and serve His Body, the Church, and to present the whole gospel for the whole person throughout the whole world.
We of Youth With A Mission believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative word, revealing that Jesus Christ is God’s son; that people are created in God’s image;
that He created us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ;
that although all people have sinned and come short of God’s glory, God has made salvation possible through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ;
that repentance, faith, love and obedience are fitting responses to God’s initiative of grace towards us;
that God desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth;
and that the Holy Spirit’s power is demonstrated in and through us for the accomplishment of Christ’s last commandment, “…Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation”
