10/2012 – This posted on our facebook page a little while ago by one of our amazing teens:
Hey people. God is amazing! incredible he really does heal and does every other thing that might make you cry, laugh or just be amazed. I just wanted to say that Jesus loves you all so much no matter what and he’s always there even if you dealt him, his still there waiting for you to take him back and he understands you. Don’t go around trying to find people that might understand you because God is right there. You just got to listen to his voice, learn from it and do what he says. Even speak to him tell him everything and you know what? He’ll listen and you’ll feel better. Jesus can use you in the most amazingest ways and if your in trouble or feel upset just call on Jesus’s name out loud and he will help you and take care of that problem. If you aren’t a Christian thats ok. Just wanted to let you know “Jesus love’s you and your special!”
