I want to change the world! I know that sounds big, but my God is big. I
want to show people that they matter to God. So many kids don't realize that.
They think that if they haven't been living for God already, they've blown it.
But they haven't. No matter what we've done, He never turns His back on us, He
wants us back.
I started a prayer group at my school. To get it going, a friend and I
talked to a teacher. Only three kids came to the first meeting. But every week
it's grown a little bigger. It's gotten around by word of mouth, through the
school announcements, by distributing fliers and, of course, by telling kids
about it at CrossWalk.
My best friend, Cynthia, and I have been talking every day about the Lord.
She had turned her back on God and was living for the world. I think it was
rebellion because of her parents' divorce and some problems with alcoholism in
her family. But I wouldn't let her use those excuses. I told her she had to
make a decision on her own. We've talked and prayed almost every day. Instead
of going out partying, we go to youth rallies. Now comes the exciting part: not
only did she rededicate her life, she's joined the church and wants to get
involved with missions!
