We gathered at the pool the Wednesday night to have our last P.T.L. (praise the Lord) event for the summer. We baptized two of our students which was an amazing experience for the younger crowd to see.  I liked the fact that we did it outside of the church walls.  I felt that it had more meaning to the young people who were there and for the students themselves.  I think that we put a strong emphasis on baptism (not that it is not important) in our community.  When you live in a Catholic dominated town batizm is huge.  In the Catholic faith you have to be baptized to experience heaven or more it is a requirement of salvation, that’s not what the bible says.  Our students realize that baptism is important and that this is a declaration that they know Christ and are ready to share that with the rest of the world. 

This summer is coming to a close fast.  It is awesome to see what God has done within our group. We have learned so much about each other and our friendships and relationships. I can only imagine what God is going to accomplish in this school year. My desire for our teens has always been that they come to know Jesus Christ personally and that they share the gospel with others. Currently, I long to see our students make good choices so that others will see how important the Christian walk is to our daily lives.  Our young people make little stupid mistakes and it effects so many people that they don’t even realize. I long to see outsiders want a relationship with Christ becuase of the lives they see in our students at the church.  Even with the mistakes young people make, others can still want a relationship with Christ.  They will see what mercy and grace are all about.  However, we need to cut down on the stupid mistakes we are making. 

I don’t think our teens have learned yet that what they say and what they do in there emotions and actions has an effect on others. I long to start our iChoose series so we can discuss making good choices in life.  I long to push our young people to engage in the Lord, to devote themselves with all they got to kingdom ministry. People need to lean that that the choices we make have an effect others. Our young people need to learn that. Heck, our older people need to learn that.  I’m learning that! We are to set an example. Paul speaks to us in Timothy by proclaiming to “not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.”

Pray for our youth, dominate your weaknesses.
