I was in a pretty bad place with my walk with God before
I came to Revolution Hawaii. I had forgotten about what it was like to
experience Gods love because I had pushed Him so far away. I went from
being surrounded by many Christians to a home full of unbelievers and being
alone while all my friends were earning a college degree. I didn’t understand
what path God had me on and I certainly didn’t trust that God had a plan
for me. Even though I was still attending church, I wasn’t “feeling”
his presence and I most definitely wasn’t following His commandments.
I indulged in a sin I thought I would never commit which pulled me even
further away from God because I no longer felt like I deserved His grace.
As I was feeling lost and insecure about where I was in life my friend
Andrew Frees told me about Revolution Hawaii. As soon as I heard about
it God filled me with so much peace and joy, I knew it was what I was supposed
to do next!
When I came to Revolution Hawaii, I wasn’t prepared for the long stretching
experience God had planned for me. We dove straight into reading scripture,
praying, and doing community outreaches. I began to feel Gods love again
through His word, prayer, my teammates, and believe it or not, the people
we were reaching out to. I’m not saying this experience was always easy.
Living with 9 other girls and being constantly busy brought on a lot of
exhaustion and taught me how to be a servant even when I didn’t want to
be. As time went by I started to believe that God really could use me also.
My ministry at the High School really started to prosper as well as our
community outreaches in China town and the Bush in Waianae. I started seeing
people get healed, prophecy, and countless answers to prayer being done
by God through me! How cool! I meditated on the fact that just a few short
months ago I had turned away from God and now, not only had He forgiven
me, He was using me to do His work. God is so full of mercy!
There were so many things I learned and things that God did in my time
here in Revolution Hawaii, but I truly can’t sum it up in one testimony.
God did so much, but it all stemmed from Him reminding me of His love and
teaching me the grace He has for his children. I’ve learned how much He
truly cares for me and now I’m able to show His love and mercy to others!
