I passed by the table several times before stopping. The banner reading “A Free gift for You” got my attention. I spoke with Dwayna for over an hour. She told me all about Jesus and gave me a Bible. I had never prayed before, at the age of 53. I thought much about our conversation. I attended church that night and spoke with Dwayna and her pastor further about becoming a Christian. Now, I’ll never be the same again. I have started reading the Bible I got at the Lighting The Way table every day and telling people about Jesus. I called my daughter in England and said, “Are you sitting down? I have become a Christian.”DonEngland
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
