This is a testimony of a young man who had an encounter with the Lord Jesus during a Reach for Life training for Compassion International, Ghana. Be inspired and enjoy as you read.

“My name is Kingsley, I am 18 years old and a beneficiary of Compassion International Ghana at Juapong. I had the opportunity to be selected by my project leader to represent my project at a Reach for Life Training organized by Biblica for the Asuogyaman Cluster of Compassion International, Ghana. On the final day of the training, I had an encounter with the Lord Jesus during a change lesson on: “Telling Your Story”. This lesson allowed me to take stock of my life, and to learn how I could partner with Jesus for a life-transforming experience.

During prayer time, I realized how empty my life had been! I had been moving with bad friends and engaging in all sorts of bad acts against my mother’s admonishments. I  had a strained relationship with my mother and family because of my bad behavior. I  was in charge of my own life. During the prayer session, however, I surrendered it all to Jesus and I have since reconciled with my mother and now have a healthy relationship with my family – oh what a peaceful experience this has been! – the joy this reconciliation brought into my soul, I cannot explain.

I have been witnessing to my friends using the Reach for Life book, many of whom now call me Kingsley the ‘Newborn’. I feel the change within me and all around me can testify that something has changed about me. One of my friends had said this to me: “I don’t know what happened to you,  but whatever happened to you is good”

I am not the same person anymore after my encounter with Reach for Life. I give glory to Jesus for my life! God bless Biblica for the Reach for Life program.”

I’m so discouraged I sometimes don’t know how to go on. God didn’t create us to fend for ourselves in our grief. He placed us in families, with friends, and in communities so we can share the good times and bad times of life together. The Bible affirms the value of our human relationships—… Read more
