It was Thursday on Youth Mission Week, my whole group was tired and we still had a ramp to finish. It was hot but the heat didn’t stop us for trying to bring God glory. At lunch, we sang praises and one of the girls in our group had an amazing voice. We could feel God’s presence as we finished the ramp.
After we built the ramp, we went inside and the same girl, with the amazing voice, sang a hymn. It was so sweet and the Holy Spirit led us to share the gospel with the man, who we were building the ramp for, and he accepted Christ. It was such a sweet and tender moment, watching Jesus draw this man to Himself!

On Thursday, after morning Bible study, I noticed a girl crying. I approached her, asked her what was wrong, and as she talked, I asked her if she had a relationship with God. She said, “No,” and I shared the gospel with her and then she told me she wanted Jesus in her heart. I was so stoked because it is a huge blessing to share with someone.
As I go upstairs for lunch chapel, two other girls from her church told me they wanted to be saved. We walked downstairs and I begin to share with them. As I am talking with them, another girl came to the door of our classroom, and she was crying. I asked her what was wrong and she responded she wanted to be saved. After sharing with each of these girls, they all decided to follow Jesus!
