The last few weeks have been jam-packed for our Academy students as they continue to step out in mission. Last week they were in Partington and saw many young people give their lives to Jesus!
When helping at a youth group, student Destiny started chatting to Millie who shared that her dad was a church pastor but that she’d been feeling distant in her own faith. Destiny prayed that she would feel God’s love and nearness like never before. Later that day, Millie came rushing back to find Destiny saying that since they had prayed together, she couldn’t stop crying or thinking about God and wanted to accept Jesus into her life again!
When doing a gig at the end of the week for young people, student Hannah shared the gospel from the stage for the first time. Despite being nervous God used Hannah and she saw seven young people respond to the gospel! Hannah said, ‘I felt so encouraged to see people want to accept Jesus in their lives and I even had the privilege of praying with some girls after the gig who were desperate to find out more about God.’
Throughout the evening, the Academy students shared about the love of Jesus with the young people and Henry felt led to tell Olivia how there is a God who made her, and loves, knows and accepts her just as she is. Olivia burst into tears saying that was exactly what she had been needing to hear and right there and then, Olivia accepted Jesus into her life! After seeing what God was doing for Olivia, her friends who had been listening in also wanted to give their lives to Jesus and are now in touch with a local church to find out more and get plugged in to Christian community!
