As life was, I enjoyed it, growing up in a Christian home and attending church every week. I felt God was true and eternity a certainty, but something was not real to me. It was something I could base my life upon.
That mission experience, a first for me, changed my life. In a make-shift Coffee Bar, team members sat explaining ‘Creation’ to a group of teens and spoke about Jesus as someone who was alive and personal to them. Somehow, everything clicked that night. I realised God was real, alive and calling me to Himself.
All my doubts and fears vanished. I felt the most incredible peace and a totally new person! Life began to take on fresh meaning. I made lasting friendships with that Auckland team and discovered that leading someone to Christ is the biggest ‘buzz’ ever!
I really want to encourage you to get involved in a summer mission.
