My heart is and always has been teaching the youth. Teenagers are in the most vulnerable time in their lives, and I feel I should help make straight as many paths as possible. It says in 1 Corinthians 3:11, “For no man can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” There are so many bad influences out there in the world today. We see this so often in movies, songs and video games. It is easy for our youth to take a step back from moral values and make bad choices. I feel it is up to me and all Christians to step up and teach our youth God’s Word, and help them establish a life worthy of our Lord. I use the analogy of an old car going up a hill: it takes so much effort to get it to the top of the hill; yet with perseverance and hard work, it makes it. Such is a life with Christ. It takes perseverance, dedication and hard work to live the life He set out for us. But too many children today take the fast ride down the hill, with no work or dedication, conforming to the worldly ideas, and missing out on what God has for them. My mission in life is to reach as many teenagers as possible, whether on the street, in a park, in a gym, anywhere; and let them know they can have a life that is filled with power, gifts, rewards and peace through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
