After a Wednesday worship service, a newer visiting student came up to me and told me how much he had loved visiting our student ministry over the past few weeks. He told me he wanted to write me an email about what was going on in his life. Read this. I was blown away. Please be praying for him as God continues to work in his life to bring him closer to salvation in Jesus Christ! I just wanted to share this with you.
“Alright, heres whats goin on
Pretty much church has never made a whole lot of sence to me, I never understood what was going on, I only went when I was younger cause my mom took me. When I got old enough to start making my own decisions I stopped going, that was like 10 or 11. Few years after that I got into high school and started talking to people who not only didnt believe but dis-believed. I started doing the same thing, shooting down the bible and making excuses wherever I could. Well I started having a rough time at school and just in general close to the end of this school year. I started seeing a councilor about it and I had been talking to samantha recently around school. My councilor said I needed to get outa the house and do something with friends. So I asked [my friend] if I could come to church with her, and of course she said yes. So I showed up Wednesday night and I had a lot of fun and it really spoke to me, more so then I had ever felt it. So I’v been returning and really enjoying myself. The Bible has never made sense to me until now, I’m actually interested in reading it. I’m just having a hard time believing in everything after dis-believing for so long. I’m also attempting not to get attached to capshaw baptist because I’m leaving come fall, so I’m kinda stuck in a limbo sort of thing, not sure if I should move forward or not. I realize how important it is to accept Jesus and to know God, and I want to do both. I just need some guidance on what I need to do and how to go about it.
Sorry for the long e-mail, and thank you so much for taking your time to read over it.
Looking forward to your opinion”
