“I have found my Hope”

As this past school year wrapped up we asked students from Bethlehem Campus Life Club to share what they saw God do in their life over this past year. At the last Club meeting of the year we sat in a circle and students began to share. Among them was Kelly:

“Last summer and last year I was in a dark place. I was struggling with an eating disorder and things at home with my parents weren’t going well.

I tried to be the perfect daughter and the perfect athlete, but I still felt miserable and helpless all of the time. That’s when my friend Sarah reached out to me and invited me to Club.

I started coming here and heard about who Jesus is, and I began reading the Bible and meeting with the leaders. I finally had something to look forward to each week and something that lifted me up. Now I’ve found my hope in Jesus Christ. Choosing to follow Jesus was the best decision I’ve ever made. I hope I can be as good of a friend as mine were and reach out to people to bring them into this too”

The leaders and I sat back as a few other kids told similar stories. We praise God for using Bethlehem Campus Life to bring the light and truth of the message of Jesus Christ into a dark and confusing world. Thank you for being a part of it, and pray for its continued impact.
