Released from Despair

Following is a recent testimony from the Youth for Christ youth centre in Presov, Slovakia:

We are very thankful to the Lord that we could see how He touched one young man who refused God after a car accident. He rebelled against God, took drugs for some time and considered suicide several times. In one of those moments when he did not want to live and he wanted to jump from a bridge near the Youth for Christ centre, he decided that he would visit Youth for Christ for a talk.

He knew us because he had visited Rock Solid clubs as a child. At that time he wanted to follow the Lord but his car accident changed his life and his relationship with the Lord. He was full of anger, pain and unforgiveness. When he visited us, we invited him to Mobilization, a conference of prayer and fasting . We ministered to him at the conference.

The Lord touched him deeply. He gave a testimony to us that for the first time in his life he experienced how personally the Lord loves him. He repented and forgave, and his life was totally changed. Depression and despair faded. He is very happy and has experienced peace in his heart for the first time in a long time.

Since he decided to follow the Lord, he has visited the staff at the Youth for Christ centre every day. We talk a lot about life with the Lord, and continue to pray that he will grow and continue in his new life in Christ.
