This is what God called me to do for the rest of my life. I am in it to win it!
During a recent trip to Puerto Rico, one team member, Alyssa, spoke with a woman in a cafeteria who was struggling with suicidal thoughts. Alyssa listened to her story, shared the hope she carries, and then she prayed for her. The woman, filled with emotion, ran out from behind the counter and hugged Alyssa.“I had given up. I was planning to kill myself. You’ve given me what I need to keep on living.” Another participant named Fonte shared the Gospel with an 18-year-old who said, “I am going to hell when I die.” Fonte said, “That doesn’t have to be your fate. There’s another path you could walk. Would you like to know more?” They continued talking and Fonte led the young man to Jesus! This team also visited the small town of La Perla, well known for its drugs and violence. God used a Muslim lady to introduce them to several people who lived there. The team spent the day talking with residents and sharing about God’s love. Hearing these kinds of stories encourages us as we seek to activate faith in the next generation of Christ followers and we hope it encourages you too.
