It’s Friday and time for another Life Change Inbox! Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 3:2-4 that our lives are living letters written so that God might be glorified. People often write in to Elevation and share the work God is doing in their lives through our church. When I read these stories, I am reminded that we serve a powerful God who still works miracles in the lives of everyday people. These stories inspire me to keep giving, keep serving and continue praying for those who are far from God. I hope they will do the same for you.
Check out 12 year old Jada’s story…….
Dear Pastor Steven,
My life is like a Disney movie, sad beginning but happy ending. I was born in Liberia when a civil war was going on. A man was on a mission trip and as soon as I saw this man I smiled at him. The man promised that he would come back soon to adopt me. The man, named John, adopted my brother Davis and me on November 25, 2005 when we were 5 years old. Getting adopted into a loving family was the best thing that ever happened to me. Going to Elevation Church was the second best thing that happened to me because after God came into my life and took me out of the horrible orphanage I was in, I still had fears and anger, like someday I will be abandoned by my new family. But I have made alot of progress learning how to trust and love by listening to the message each week and by serving with the great people at Elevation Church. Every week I learn something new like the message this past Sunday taught me that my fears are not based on my present reality and because of my faith and love for God I am learning how to trust, love and be less angry and afraid.
