A 15-Year-Old Wants Jesus

I was leading a Bible study for incarcerated teens when I noticed a boy sitting alone two tables away. He was looking the other direction, but his ear was toward me. After awhile he moved to a closer table, still looking another direction, but his ear was toward me.

Toward the end of the lesson he looked at me directly and I motioned for him to come over.  I said, “I’m just finishing with these guys, but I’d like to talk with you.”

I spent nearly an hour with this precious, fearful 15-year-old who poured out his sad story, and then opened his heart to Jesus. He went to his room with hope,  a smile and  a new awareness of God’s love and forgiveness.

Thank you God for healing hearts!

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.
