Youth for Christ in Australia excitedly shares that they are seeing passionate young believers rising up in their nation. Andrew is just one example.

unnamedOnce an atheist, Andrew says, “I was the person who would try to convince you that God didn’t exist.” Today Andrew’s story is much different.

I experienced an encounter with my creator. In a moment I felt true tangible love fall upon me. This is how God became real to me. I now have a passion to see young people understand their value and come to know that they are loved. This is why I have joined YFC as an intern. It’s a privilege to be a vessel to be used by God and show His love to others. There’s nothing else I’d rather be doing.

When all that we see in the news begins to drain us of any hope for the future – be encouraged! God is actively redeeming his world.

“Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?
There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,
rivers in the badlands.” (Isaiah 43:19 The Message)
