Reply changed #35 on July 22, 2010 at 3:25 pm Before LIFE I was not sure what God was calling me to do. After LIFE I know that God is calling me to become a video missionary and to spread his Word through video Reply Mrs. Z on July 18, 2010 at 10:12 am Leadership, its a difficult calling/responsibility. Its difficult to make sure the focus is on God and not you and others. I’m glad to see that you realize its God’s doing and not people’s.

After Life: The seminar with Daniel opened my mind to overseas ministry in countries that don’t allow Christians as I will be an engineer. Reply Changed by Life 32 on July 17, 2010 at 9:57 pm Before Life: I thought that I had nothing to worry about, everything was peachy. In my eyes I felt like there was nothing wrong in the way I lived my life. After Life: Confused is one major thing I feel. I don’t like the feeling and the reason why is because I know there is something wrong with the way I am living my life. I’m also frustrated. I don’t know because I was tired or again because of how I’ve been living. …. Lastly, I’m hurting because I don’t know what to do. He doesn’t’ really need me.

Reply Changed by Life 30 on July 17, 2010 at 9:55 pm Before Life: it was hard for me to open up my heart and let someone in. It was also hard for me to really trust someone. After Life: It feels like it will be easier for me to let someone in . This is able to happen because God had me go to seminars that connected with my life. Reply Changed by Life 29 on July 17, 2010 at 9:54 pm Before Life: I had many questions and no real answers to who God was and who He wanted me to be. After Life: I am made out of God’s image and He is all might and so very powerful.

Reply Changed by Life 27 on July 17, 2010 at 9:52 pm Before Life: • I wouldn’t have trusted God if something bad happened or thank Him. • I didn’t think about the things I would do or if they honored God • I wouldn’t spend time listening to Him I thought God wasn’t as big as He is. After Life: • I will trust Him and thank Him because everything’s for a reason • When I don’t know if I should do something I will think if it honors God. • I will listen to God after I talk with Him • He is way bigger than I ever can be • Actions speak louder than words Reply Changed by Life 26 on July 17, 2010 at 9:50 pm Before Life: I didn’t have a super strong relationship with God anymore like I used to but now I do. He wants me to focus more on Him. After Life: God want me to stop worrying about other things and just give him my whole heart and what He does is what He does Reply Changed by Life 25 on July 17, 2010 at 9:48 pm Before Life: I didn’t know if God was going to call me to the mission field. I pushed God away and didn’t put him first in my life like I should have. After Life: God had called me to serve in the mission field. To be a missionary doctor. I am more in love with God than ever. God is now first in my life. Reply Changed by Life 24 on July 17, 2010 at 9:47 pm Before Life I was struggling about my future, like what should I major in? I know that I said I want to major in music but I was thinking about my future thinking that I wouldn’t go far. When we went to the last concert I asked God if it is your will please come let me be in an awesome Christian band. I don’t know if God told me this or it was just my my thoughts but all I heard was yes, not once, but 3 times I heard the word, yes. I don’t know if this is God’s will but I pray and hope that it is. After Life: I am filled with mixed emotions about my future, bout life and how awesome it was and the music and I just hope and pray that God gives me the skills to be a really amazing guitarist Reply Changed by Life 23 on July 17, 2010 at 9:45 pm Before Life: A carefree heart After Life: RESTLESSNESS ????

After Life: Energized Reply Changed by Life 19 on July 15, 2010 at 7:51 pm Before: I had doubts/?/concerns about missioning? After: I’m eager to share His work and I remember He will provide. Jer. Ch 1 Reply Changed by Life 18 on July 15, 2010 at 7:50 pm Before: I was not really doing much to break out of my routine every week, like church and youth group on Sundays and AWANA on Wednesday during the winter. But is someone asked me a question and I had an answer I would just give them a difficult, complicated Sunday School answer. I am/was sick of it/this. I want it all to change during/after Life. After: I believe that I am a stronger person in my faith now after Life. Especially after I with through project experience. That really changed my view of everything. $190 billion to end world hunger and we spent $30 billion on ice cream alone! You gotta be kidding me! I feel like God is telling me to do something about it but I don’t know what yet. But to be grateful and content with what He wants me to do is all I can do right now I CAN”T WAIT! Reply Changed by Life 17 on July 15, 2010 at 7:49 pm Before: I was confused about where God wanted me and who should I help first and would He be upset with me if I made the wrong choices. Would He not love me the same? After: I think I have it figured out. I think He’s been prepping me and that I don’t have to cut one thing off to start another. He loves me unconditionally Reply Changed by Life 16 on July 15, 2010 at 7:48 pm Before: I really had no idea what I wanted to do with my life in college and what to major in After: I now know that I need to do something with homeless ministry; whatever that may be. I also need to spend much more time with God. Reply Changed by Life 15 on July 15, 2010 at 7:47 pm Before: I wore clothes that my friends wore. I thought being green meant to be like a hippie, just eating fruits and vegetables. Also living in the forest. I usually didn’t say sorry a lot and now I learned a lot of things about forgiveness and peace making. I didn’t know how to spread my faith to other people. After: I know how to spread my faith to others now. I don’t have to care what kind of clothes I am wearing or wear or what my friends are wearing. You don’t always have to protest against the government to become more green. And when your fiends ask about being green you can tell them you don’t just have to eat fruits and vegetables. To love others sometimes comes with sacrifices. Reply Changed by Life 15 on July 15, 2010 at 7:46 pm Before: I wore clothes that my friends wore.

I need to cultivate what He’s given me by spending more time getting to know Him Reply Changed by Life 13 on July 15, 2010 at 7:44 pm Before: For the most part I could care less about reading the Bible and growing spiritually After: I feel that reading the Bible and growing spiritually is important. Reply Changed by Life 12 on July 15, 2010 at 7:44 pm Before: I was upset and hurt and I felt like God was distant. And that I’m not good enough After: I feel peace and I have a new approach to connect with God. Reply Changed by Life 11 on July 15, 2010 at 7:42 pm Before: Always doubting God every time something bad would happen in my life. After: Learned that non one can escape suffering, even if you have a very strong relationship with God. Reply Changed by Life 10 on July 15, 2010 at 7:41 pm Before: I was shy and scared to really express myself and talk to people I didn’t know. I had trouble making friends with any one I met because I was too worried before I even spoke. After: I was given courage by God because he knows I hated being so self conscious and nervous to speak out all the time. I have prayed for this time and time again and God waited for the perfect moment to bless me with this gift.

MY heart was totally cut off and unready to hear the Gospel, although earlier in the year I had finally accepted Him for the first real time. After a lot of spiritual neglect, I lost the vigor I had recently After attending Life: I feel as though I have been restored of my spiritual vigor. I came away from the experience with only positive lessons. I have decided to not have sex before marriage, by my own choosing for the first time. I also have begun to realize that I have serious anger problems which is very helpful to recognize so I can work on that. Reply Changed by Life 6 on July 15, 2010 at 7:37 pm Before Life: I struggled with bringing my friends, family and even those people I don’t know to the Lord. I also hadn’t known or really understood the power and works of Satan in things. The power he has to take people away from God without them ever knowing it was him. After Life:… Now I really do want to spread the word to everyone! After praying for the people at the service project I realized just how much I could and I should do. Also, after the experience I was strongly impacted. Reply Changed by Life 5 on July 15, 2010 at 7:37 pm Before: Fighting God about my calling • Wanting my own choice • Going for worldly things like friends and not trusting • Wanted worldly love, not Godly love so much • Wanting answers to issues • Unknowledgeable • Conforming • After: Knowing my calling • Trusting God completely • Going home with a peace and reassurance • Filled and overflowed with His Spirit & love. • Connected to the group more • Learning more about God and people • Changed Reply Changed by Life 4 on July 15, 2010 at 7:36 pm Before Life I was not real sure what to expect from this trip so I went with an open mind After: I have the strong feeling to read the Bible more and to know more of the word and be more devoted Reply Changed by Life 3 on July 15, 2010 at 7:31 pm Before: • Had daily devos but didn’t feel that connected with God Had only a tiny bit of courage to stand up for my faith and/or share anything about God. • After: Feeling a slight calling to serve in Siam Try my hardest to give all my life to God and have the courage to share Jesus with others. Reply Changed by Life 2 on July 15, 2010 at 7:30 pm Before Life : • I struggled with feeling distant from God. • Unsure of what to do with my future . Uncomfortable with my faith, especially with my friends. After Life: • I learned that God is always constant, never distant • I fell in love with worship • I want to bring the Love of God into barns and show it to others by how I care for their horses. I want to be a light to my friends Reply Changed by Life 1 on July 15, 2010 at 7:29 pm Before Life I was lost. I didn’t know what to do and Satan had his grasp on me. And I was stuck in a spot. After: Now I feel the Holy Spirit with me and I know why Satan was attacking me. He doesn’t want me to go out and spread the word. I WILL SPREAD THE WORD Reply Mrs. Z on July 11, 2010 at 8:59 pm Thanks for the wonderful pictures…. I’m so glad to have my kids back safe and sound and hopefully impacted to live for God.

Reply jocelyn on July 11, 2010 at 12:37 am I realized that I got a lot of learning to do and I am nowhere near done being the person that god wants me to be. Everything I do is because he loves me, I breathe because god loves me, I see and hear and I do everything because he has given me all those things. And since he gave me the ablity to see, hear breathe, touch ec. I have to use those thing to honor him. … Im coming home mapa Reply tyler washington on July 11, 2010 at 12:36 am Blog blog blog blog blaging it up, woot woot last day LIFE woot.

Reply danielr on July 8, 2010 at 11:03 pm Nick Savides- I am having a lot of fun so far. One seminar I went to which was called Plastics Only talked about how to be green and apply it to your life. I learned that you don’t have to be like a hippie and only eat fruits and vegetables. I also learned that you always don’t have to protest against the government instaed you can plant a tree or even pray for the environment. I also went to a seminar called Loving Others which taught me that to love sometimes there is sacrifice along the way, and that you have to have a relationship with someone to love them. My third seminar I went to was about that you should care about what kind of clothes you are wearing because god just wants you just to be youself. Francis Chan did a really good job speaking on Wednesday. Tomorrow I am going to a seminar called Forgiveness and Peacemaking. I had tons of fun at the baseball game today. I really liked listening to Trace Bunde, Logan Martin , and Kutless songss. Hey dad and mom I bet you are missing me right now. Until later I now say good bye. Reply danielr on July 8, 2010 at 11:02 pm Lisa- I had a great time yesterday playing on the big toys, listening to Francis Chan, and wandering around looking for free things from the different booths!

We’re learning soo much and having a blast! I got to meet some missionaries yesterday and talked to them about their journies and how they decided to become missionaries. The seminars are great, general sessions are very moving, and the different booths in the expo hall are cool to visit. We only have 3 more days!!
