What teenage girl isn’t into fashion?
Imagine over 90 middle school girls crowded into the normally quiet media center on campus. The room is transformed into the venue for the Fall Trends Fasion show, an outreach hosted by Student Venture. The theme of the event is Inner and Outer Beauty. Four sophomore girls from the local high school step up to take center stage and run the show. You’ve heard of Extreme Makeover? Now imagine a “blind” makeover.
Yes, a game where the girl giving the makeover is blindfolded.
The results are… well, fun that only a teenager could appreciate! As the powder settles, the fashion show begins and features a mix of high school and middle schoolers.
Once the show is over, the stage is set for Marissa, who went on an overseas mission project this past summer to Hungary and learned how to share her faith in Christ. She explaines how she once tried to fill the “God-shaped vacuum” in her heart with many things — clothing, relationships, grades, activities — but always ended up feeling empty.
Marissa illustrates her story by filling a large plastic jug with objects that represented those many things. Then she fills the jug completely with two gallons of water.
She explaines that Jesus offers each of us living water. In John 4:14 Jesus said, “Anyone who drinks this [well] water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” Marissa continues to share who Jesus is, how we’ve become separated from Him because of sin and how we can be restored into right relationship with Him.
Nine girls indicated they made decisions to follow Jesus. Please pray for these girls and the other 80+ who attended. Pray for them to get plugged into a group where they can continue to grow spiritually, have their questions answered and know how much they are loved by their Savior.
- Pray for God’s provision of our monthly financial support need.
- Pray for Ethan in his Kindergarten class. He is receiving some great one-to-one time each afternoon with the Varying Exceptionalities teacher. We are continuing to hire additional private therapies outside of the school day. Please pray for his processing abilities and his hand/finger strength.
- Praises for Hannah’s sweet faith and love for the Lord. She asks great questions about what she hears on the playground (like horoscope stuff). She discerned that people who follow the stars are worshiping the creation, rather than the Creator. Please pray that God would protect her precious heart and that she’d continue to develop a Biblical world view.
