I took my youth group to the mall Friday night with Jessica, Cherie, and Christy. I prayed with a father and daughter and the little girl accepted Jesus. Her dad said he might let her come to youth group. It was amazing to see the youth approaching their friends and praying with them, and being bold to talk about Jesus.
On Sunday December 13, 2009. The outreach that we had was absolutely amazing and life changing. I have been at this church quite awhile now and I have helped in many outreaches here, but this one was definitely impacting. I actually wasn’t apart of the service this time. I was helping in the nursery. It was so impacting to me. We had forty-one little kids in there and at first it was very overwhelming and didn’t think I could handle it, but I finally just said “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.
God was just there. He was in all those kids. At first they cried and cried but finally all the kids were happy and playing. It just made me so happy. I got to share Christ with some of them, and they knew how much God loved them and they know that He lives in them. It was the most precious thing I have ever seen. It definitely gave me a revelation that doesn’t matter how old you are, God will work through you. Even though I didn’t work with the toy give away being with those children blessed me more than ever. It was so beautiful. I also would look outside with all the families they looked so blessed and happy.
I’m so thankful we have a church that is out to reach the lost. To bring them in and share the love of God and just be their to bless them. It was the most amazing thing. This outreach blessed me more than ever. I know I didn’t help a lot but seeing all the families and kids just have so much joy its indescribable. I will never forget that day. I just feel like God is going bring more great things to come, and I am so excited to see and be apart of it.
