Right now I am doing a few different things.  To start with, I teach a children's class and play the piano on Wednesday nights; I really enjoy doing both.  I also work at a convenience store, so I sometimes try to witness to some of our customers, if the Lord leads me to start up a conversation with them then I will try to do it.  And I listen to people who need someone to talk to.  Even though I am only 15, there are still a lot of adults who will talk to me and ask me for prayer, and sometimes advice.  I know it sounds strange, but there are a lot of people, young and old who really don't have anyone they can really talk to.  Sure, they have people who love them, but they don't always have someone who will try to understand their feelings and what they are going through.  There is one person who I have been talking with for a while now.  He is one of my very best friends, even though he is 23 years older than me.  He has really been having a hard time lately, financially.  Satan has just tried so hard to get him down, but we have talked a lot and I gave him scripture, and I told him he should pray about it and that I would pray for him.  It took a little while, but he's really picking up.  I think the main thing I do is just try to lift people's spirits.  If I see someone who just seems to be struggling with things I will start up a conversation and try to make them laugh and cheer up.  I also pray for people who I see needing help.  God has blessed me in giving me the oppourtunity and ability to do all of these things.  I enjoy helping people.  It makes me feel so wonderful to know that God is working THROUGH me!

what a strong young christian woman you are.  i have been saved for numerous years, and still find it hard to talk to strangers about the Lord.  i hope my neighbors see me as someone who is different.  that i have something special that they don't have.  i hope others see me as a living testimony for the lord.

i praise you for everything you are doing, but please also be careful.  i will pray for you.

god bless, gina

Thank you very much.  I need as many prayers as can be prayed right now and always.  But don't please don't praise me, praise God!  This may surprise you but I have only been saved for two years as of April.  My family didn't even start going to church until I was about 12 1/2 years old! I praise God for how far I have come.

AMEN MJC!

Sister, I love to hear about what GOD is doing in the lives of our young people. I realize that we are living in increasingly difficult times for Christians, but GOD is the same yesterday, today, and forever!

There have been numerous difficult times in history for Christians, and the end result was always the same - we have the HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD in our hearts, and this world is NOT our home. Our hopes for eternity are ROCK SOLID IN JESUS CHRIST! If we keep our eyes on JESUS during this short life here, we can do ALL in CHRIST because we rely on HIS Strength - not our own. We will have trials and disappointments in this short life, but NOT ONE of the disappointments will be in JESUS CHRIST.

Sister, it's refreshing to hear about you, and I appreciate you sharing with us. You're absolutely right about GOD getting all of the Glory. That should be true of all things in a Christian's life. I can't remember who said it, but I like it, something like - we can keep trying but the ultimate is to let GOD work in and through us. The statement really ended with just "Let GOD".

Sister, you are a bright spot in our day like many other sweet Christians here. We can all pray for each other, and many of us will be praying for you.

Love In Christ,
Tom
