Lance's first time to attend our annual discipleship conference.
"It was last year, I was at the lowest point of my life. Everything went wrong with my life. I didn't know where to go or what to do. I was about to give up. I ran away from home for almost a week, didn't see a way out of my problems. It was all endless days and sleepless nights. Then one day my friend invited me to go to service with her, I said yes for the sake of the relationship we had.
The whole time during the service felt too good to be true, I wanted to go back again. 4-6 weeks later I was approached by a guy I have never seen before but I was told he was in my campus. We were able to chat about service a bit but I had to rush home. He messaged me the next day about one2one, I was hesitant due to being in a catholic family but I still said yes because I wanted to learn about what this "one2one" was about.
Months went by and we finally finished one2one. By then, I was already serving in the friday youth service, I was telling my classmates about God and the Bible, I met a lot of people who made a great impact in my life. If it was this time 13 months ago, I would have never expected this to happen. If somehow I was told that this would happen I would've just laughed it off. But God works in different ways, he uses others to bring people close to him. Lost people, people with doubts, troubles, worries and endless sinning. I was all of those and more. God used everyone close to me to bring me to him. I have read the bible about God's power, but I never thought it would be this strong. The impact of God's infinite love for us has rendered me speechless."
