Several teenagers from our church shared with us this week that their teachers in public school have been trying to discourage them from their Christian faith, treating them differently than other students and informally "quizzing" them about Buddhism in a hostile way.
Additionally, some of these same students face taunting and negativity from family members and neighbors when at home, leading them to feel that our Center is the only place that welcomes them.
Please join us in praying:
- That God would encourage them and be the lifter of their heads as they remain faithful to Him
- That they would show grace and kindness to their persecutors, overcoming evil with good
- That our staff would have wisdom as we counsel these young believers
- That those who feel a need to mock or discourage Christians in our community would receive revelation of God's love for them, and that they like Saul/Paul would be transformed into whole-hearted followers of Christ
