A Preteen Who Finally Heard

I just got this note from a young lady who attended PreTeen Camp at Highland Lakes a few weeks ago. At first it sounds like a criticism, but when I kept reading it I saw it was a testimony. It is very encouraging, reminding me to just keep pressing on in proclaiming God’s Word, because you never know who is listening and ready to hear (because not everybody is at any given moment in time). Here is the note unedited. I left out the individual’s name and church for privacy sake….

I have seen u perform for the past three years at latham springs one year and I never listened to you….but this year at highland lakes camp this past week I listened and I felt my stomach turn inside out and I felt a heaviness in my chest and my heart so I picked up my bible started reading and ive decided that I want to do everything through god and go the distance god I the only one who will love me eternally and I thank you ..ever since I heard you I wanna be in ministry when I get older just like you
