DO UNTO OTHERS- STL
The last few weeks have made Ferguson look like a very needy place. Yes, this town does need much, but that doesn’t mean the people here are unable or unwilling to give. If there’s one thing this town needs, it’s more people giving of themselves and serving others. The teens of Blessed Teresa are doing it. Let's follow their example this Advent and Christmas season.
HOPE FOR THE HOPELESS- HAITI
Oh this has definitely happened to you, it’s happened to all of us. You’re walking around a department store and suddenly-- youcome face to face with one of those cheesy, framed, fancy font, colorful, yet intriguing every time, words that make you ask yourself; “Am I living?...Am I Laughing?...Am I Loving? Yes, I am talking about that frame that is or has even been on your very own wall somewhere in your home (If it hasn’t, then I am sure you have come across these words somehow) that contains the words: Live. Laugh. Love.
A WORKER IN HIS FIELD- COVECREST
A year ago I was a college senior sitting in my school's career center taking different assessments to figure out my life's plan and what career paths would best suit me. After two weeks of quizzes, personality tests, and in-depth look at what i do and don't value, I got my results.
My highest rated career match was financial analyst. "Okay," I thought. "I'm good with numbers and analytical work, so that makes sense." But it was the second match, which came in a close second, that really threw me off. What was it you ask? Farmer.

WHAT IS LIFE TEEN MISSIONS?
Life Teen Missions is answering the call from Christ’s final command in Matthew 28:19, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” through our specific ministry to teens. We invest in the lives of the youth around us by going out to them, inviting them into relationship and teaching them what it means to follow Christ.
Prayer is the foundation of all Christian life. As missionaries, we are called to be “contemplatives in action”. All our activity flows out of our prayer life, which includes both personal and communal prayer. Our prayer, the heartbeat of our communities, includes a daily personal holy hour, daily mass where available, and a devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Our missionary communities consist of single adults and families committed to a full life in Christ. Life Teen mission communities share a common vision, pray and discern together, and do all things for the Glory of God. Each member lives this out by embracing their unique role and by building trust through vulnerability, affirmation, and encouragement. Community life offers a safe but challenging place to live out our faith.
All Life Teen Missionaries are disciples committed to the person of Jesus Christ and His mission. Being a disciple of Christ demands a response to go out and create even more disciples. As Life Teen missionaries, we desire to be witnesses to all, to journey with an intimate small group and to invest ourselves entirely in our disciples.
