    Default PRAISE REPORT: How God led me to where He wants me!

    Overall synopsis of me.

    1) Was a false believer in Christ
    2) Went to occult, new age etc
    3) Got saved Nov 2016

    Once I got saved God led me out of a spiritually dead megachurch. I prayed for Him to lead me wherever me and my children could be spiritually fed. It took us on a 30 minute car ride out of town. I challenged the pastor and youth pastor for a couple hours theologically and attended the church. My oldest accepted Christ there and after some series of events I ended up becoming apart of the youth leadership program.

    We had a 3 day camping trip that ended yesterday. Mind you satan did everything to stop this trip. 3 Trailers for camping gear busted, the bus we were on broke, a storm came from nowhere and wreaked havoc and God answered every prayer and delivered us, even stopping the storm!

    Even though I was running on fumes at the end of the trip, I was up all night crying and praising!

    There was one child whom since day one of me "tagging along" always approached me with worries and problems. We just clicked to speak. Our youth pastor preached a ACTUAL GOSPEL (Blood and all) and afterwards the child pulled me aside and cried and opened up he was saved! All the other youth leaders have been there for a long while but he shared all this with me and with what we discussed before and then I saw me when I was his age.

    The next morning when the youth pastor was talking he had stated to always ask leaders questions. Remembering my salvation moment I spoke up and told the children that that even means "dumb questions". You never know if it's the question that makes it all click.

    One child stepped forward after that and accepted Christ. Later on he approached me and hugged me and said thank you. A bit perplexed I asked why. He said what I said challenged him and he had a question that was bugging him and he finally asked someone.

    "If Jesus is trying to speak to me, what is He saying?" That hit me hard. When I had my Ah ha moment the question I kept asking was "What do I have to do to be saved?"

    After much reflecting I saw WHY I was led there. There are children who will turn out like me unless I let Him Shine through me! I cried because I always felt weak and not strong to speak like this for God, but God kept it on my heart through prayer He wants me there!

    Thank you Lord!

    That's so awesome! Praise Him for all he does and is continuing to do! We rejoice with you!

    I really appreciate the praise reports...it's a nice change from either a terrorist attack or political quagmire!

    God bless you James
