This is beautiful!! It’s not us, but God working in us! That moment of transformation is where it all begins– and such a beautiful ripple effect can happen because of it! 😀

I love this story! Praise God for His salvation- of that young man, these preachers, and the many individuals who heard the Gospel through them. Thanks for this encouraging and joyful post about God changing everything!!

What a beautiful story! “He was gone for over an hour but, just as we were beginning to worry, he returned, grinning from ear to ear, insisting I listen to this chapter from Isaiah because it described exactly what had just happened for him!” Amen!

I absolutely love this song. I want more and more of God; set a fire down in my soul.

Your work with teenagers sounds so challenging and rewarding! They are lucky to have you to guide them. So glad to read this boy turned to Christ.

This so reminds me of the 10 inches. There are 10 inches (about) between the head and the heart, there is a big difference in knowing/believing Jesus in your head and knowing/believing Jesus in you heart. Like the little bit of church history. It only takes a willing vessel to make a big impact. I love that Wesley said “even mine” we often feel as if forgiveness is for everyone else, and somehow our own sins are too great to be forgiven. Many thanks for the great read 8)

Lesley,
Wow! I often wonder can one person make a big difference. This true story reveals that nothing is impossible with God. He can do immeasurably MORE than we can ask or imagine. Thank you for sharing this bit of history.
Blessings,
Bev

Thanks for this inspiring account and for the historical underpinnings.
I’m heading off to a teen training camp for ten days at the end of June, and one of the reasons I’m so excited about going is this life transformation that I know will be ahead for some of the kids that attend.
