With almost every word, they gave God credit for redeeming their lives from painful ordeals.
As folks listened, they were moved to tears by powerful testimonies of perseverance and courage.
Potential was on display through young people mentored by men and women putting God's love in action.
The audience was a mix of youth ministry collaborators from all over Buffalo. Unity is a powerful tool in building mentoring relationships. When young people share stories of losing their Moms to violence, it paints a pretty desperate picture. Thankfully, God sent men and women to teach and love them. Their love helped them embrace the struggles of life.
This was the YWAP Banquet of Testimony with a purpose of providing evidence of God's love and the opportunity to invest in these young men. They will be going on a Missions Trip to wash feet, give away new Nike Shoes, serve the community and speak to children in schools. Their lives have been changed by immeasurably and they want to share that life-changing love.
