One of the major reasons why I decided to spend my summer with Teen Missions was to share my belief with others that have the same passion. I have stayed in California all of my life and for the whole time I felt alone, as a candle in a dark room. Coming to Florida across the country and meeting hundreds of teens from all over the U.S. definitely picked me up and help me realize that I’m not crazy. I could now see a couple of lights around me. Traveling to Northern Ireland venturing even further away from my home, completely opened my eyes. Seeing people all over the city of Belfast, thousands of miles away, believing in the same thing that I do changed the small kindling ember in my soul to be an uncontrollable fire. I had the incredible privilege of speaking to the whole Sunday service, a small group of teens, and tons of kids about my faith passing on the flame to others and it was a "game changer" for me. I know when I return home, I will burn brighter than ever with God as my oil and the millions of little lights surrounding me, Praise God!
