Ministering the Gospel and feeding the bagels to the poor with Lighting The Way Worldwide was a great blessing to the youth group and me. God showed us a lot. I realized how comfortable we are in Los Angeles suburbia. God took us out of our comfort zone and called us to love people and deny our selfish desires for comfort and be satisfied in sharing God’s gospel of grace with those who need it. God made our youth group praise Him more for their salvation after seeing the blindness of those who are perishing. God planted many seeds of desire to witness in our youth and to stop valuing the things in life that are so temporal. Since we exist to know Jesus Christ and make Him known, we praise God for growing us in understanding and living that out through Lighting The Way Worldwide. God is using this ministry, and I pray that God will exalt His name through all who hear the faithful proclamation of the truth. My youth group wants to serve with them again, and so do I!PJ TibayanYouth Pastor, Christian Fellowship Bible ChurchWalnut, CA
Dear Dwayna, The University of TN has an exciting campus with so many young people about to start their adult lives apart from their parents who, more importantly, will decide their spiritual life apart from their parents. The humanists, agnostics, and liberals seem to understand the opportunity to seize the hearts and minds of the naive and confused students. I believe there is no place that has a greater need for apologetics than the college campus. I thank God everyday for people [who] helped me endure the satanic assault I was ill prepared to deal with at the time [I was in college]. No one warned me of the battle that I was to face. Whether it was evolution, ‘German Biblical Criticism’, false religions, New Age, Eastern mysticism, cults, atheism, agnosticism, or the most dangerous ‘Liberal Christianity’, my biblical faith was attacked. It seems like only yesterday, but I saw many students fall from the faith during their college days. The tools you are providing will change people’s lives. I saw satanists become Christians, party animals become pastors, the un-churched become missionaries, and liberals turn into believers. You are doing a good work… God Bless you.Scat SpringsTennessee
