Why do I do what I do? The answer is simple.....Changed Lives
Through the social network of Facebook, I have been able to reconnect with many people that were either in the youth groups or churches where I have been on staff in the past.
I recently received this message from one of those people.
"I want to thank you for all you taught me as a teen... God used you to feed and water the seed he had planted. I never lost those truths ... the experiences in youth at a time when my home was full of drugs and I spent many nights hiding in the closet from crack heads.the youth group was my safe place. My link to hope..... I have ran from God many times, but the truth of his unconditional love has always brought me back. Much of that truth I learned through the time I spent in youth....anyway... I just wanted you to know that your obedience to the Lord ...welll... it probably saved my life.... I didn't think I would live to be 18... I turned 18 at Southwestern.... Thanks. Keep doing what your doing."
So, I'll continue to stay focus on my life's mission. I'll keep doing what I'm doing.....helping people connect to God.
