Chanae: “Jesus can actually use me!”

Fifteen-year-old Chanae came to YFC’s Jesus School motivated by a desire to learn more about Jesus. Through the practical application of the teaching Chanae was able to begin taking control of the fears that had previously held her back.

Thanks for helping to empower young people like Chanae to live out their faith.

One evening, as the student team visited a local market, Chanae saw a girl and immediately felt God’s love for her.

“I saw her and I was like, ‘wow!’ Jesus wants her to know that He loves her.” Chanae recounts.

“I wanted to go tell her, but I was really scared at that time. But then I just took hold of that fear and I was like, ‘no, that’s not from God’. So I went and told her that He loved her and I hugged her and she just started crying in my arms.”

This simple act of faithfulness not only helped Chanae discover freedom from fear but also allowed a stranger to encounter an expression of God’s love.

“I felt very brave after that, and encouraged that I had listened to what God told me to do. After that I was like wow, Jesus can actually use me!”

Your faithful support is helping young people like Chanae discover more about Jesus and the freedom the Gospel offers. Thank you!
