charlie2In November, Youth for Christ in Italy had the opportunity to host Charlie Duke, one of eight living people in the world who walked on the moon during the Apollo missions.

When Charlie walked on the moon, he did not yet know Jesus. After he had achieved what seemed the top success man could have, he still felt empty and that his life was falling apart.

charlie3His message to young people is that despite his incredible achievement of walking on the moon, the most important and eternal thing in his life is knowing Jesus Christ and living for Him.

Charlie was able to share the message of the gospel with 120 high school students in Bologna and 500 students in the town of Budrio.
