Just about one year ago the first letters were received from young people in the land of Caperston. Initially they were from a young man named Mattpaul and now his best friend, Huchfee, has been writing.

A letter, dated April 10th, reports the chaos the youth are praying will be avoided... " Now Zester was furious. He pulled out a long knife and stated, 'You will leave now or risk the consequences'.

Pav-ed did fall into Lake Gael and was stunned when hitting the water. He found his eyes swelling from a reaction to the minerals in the water. Fortunately a large piece of driftwood floated by.

He could see nothing and remained in the water throughout the night, hanging on to the driftwood and becoming increasingly tired. At one point, convinced that he would die, he called out, "God of my son Mattpaul, if you are there, let me see my son one last time before I die."

Laura Cooley of St. Paul's Church, Patchogue, NY writes...
"Your book is a God-send!! You have laid out in an organized and easy-to-read fashion so many wonderful ideas and activity plans that we will never again feel uncomfortable when getting ready for our next Christian Youth Group meeting. I am new to the role of Youth Group leader and your book gives me confidence that we can indeed succeed with God's help".
Jo writes regarding Not the Same Old, Done-it-before Youth Meetings ... "I think this book is really good and helpful. I first read the online version of the book because I did not want to pay for it. But after reading a couple of program ideas and having a very very successful youth program I totally HAD to get this book. It is well worth the money."
