Hi Teens around the world


I would like to share a testimony about trials and sunflowers.

True Friends

Who are your true friends? Far too many times we consider a friend just a person to hang out with and get into mischief with, but that is not God’s idea of a proper friend! While it is just fine to have a wee giggle here and there, friendship goes a whole lot deeper than that.

Teen Picks Up Her Cross

I was thinking of what it really means to pick up my cross and what I have to do. So I thought about it and had a look at my life. I realized that I spend so much time doing things I like; such as listening to music, watching TV, surfing the Internet, watching videos on YouTube, but not on the things that God wants me to do.

I Knew That I Was A Sinner

I quietly asked the Lord to forgive me and I told GOD everything and confessed a lot. I also prayed about other things I had on my heart. After that meeting my dad and a deacon took me to a separate room and after my dad showed me in the Bible about salvation through Jesus Christ, we prayed for a short while. During that prayer time I felt completely warm inside my body and I could feel the power of God. I was so happy I knew that God had forgiven me and I knew that I had received the Holy Spirit when I started to pray in a new language which I did not know. It was just so cool!

Exam Panic, But God Brought Me Through!

Joana - Hatfield, England

On the night before one of my biggest exams, I started to panic, as I could no longer remember any of the material I had been learning that I needed for the next day. I could not sleep or think clearly, and slept less than 2 hours trying to cram in last minute revision for the 8 essays I had to write in 3 hours. From a worldly point of view, to pass this exam was almost impossible due to my lack of sleep and revision. At 3am I could not take it any longer and broke down. Suddenly I had a strong urge to pick up the book ‘What you say is what you get!’ by Don Gossett, which I had been putting off reading. The minute I began to read I felt a strong sense of peace flooding over my body.

Confessing God's Word Brings Healing To Ingrown Toenail

Miriam - Hatfield, England

I would like to recommend a fantastic book that really helped me with faith and believing, and also with healing! Recently I got an ingrown toenail that caused me a lot of pain, it got infected and pus started coming out; the skin around my toe was red and swollen. One night my sister came into my room, and gave me a book that she said really helped her! The book is called ‘What You Say is What You Get’ by the author Don Gossett. As I started reading it, I found it captivating! The book contains an incredible amount of testimonies and scriptures! Every scriptural point Don Gosset makes he backs up with many scriptures. I confessed that it wouldn’t be painful anymore and started to do sports again, then my foot got much better! First, the lump of skin fell off.......... What you confess, you possess!

Teen Controlled by Fear Sought God!

Photo of Joana

Joana - Hatfield, England

For a long time I was scared of everything, literally. I terrified that my family would die and that I would be left alone, or that I would die, or even that God would forget all about me and that I would go to Hell. I was so scared that I often cried myself to sleep at night, but sometimes was even scared to fall asleep. Everyday Satan gave me new fears and I started believing them, but I couldn’t stop the fear. I prayed everyday day, every minute, trying to block out the new fears that played in my mind...

Boring Christian Teenager Life

Martin - Abernethy, Scotland

I grew up in Switzerland in a Christian home and went to church twice a week. But life was boring and I was just very lazy; I lost my apprenticeship and things were going downhill, until I came to Scotland with a few unpleasant surprises on the way...

My Journey From a Life of Drugs and Sin back to God

Dominik - Vienna, Austria

At the age of sixteen I tried magic mushrooms and took drugs such as ecstasy and cocaine. Another year later I also ended up using heroin and speed. One day on my way home I suddenly realised that an evil spirit was attacking me and wanted to kill me. In this same moment God gave me the choice to either follow Him or not. I knew that I had no chance to conquer this demon on my own...

How the Lord Saved Me

Debbie - Sydney, Australia

Everyday I was surrounded by selfishness, rebellion, lies and rumors and as the years progressed, I found myself doing exactly the same things. Everyone talked about how wonderful the parties were and what he or she did when they were drunk. Sometimes my friends mocked me for being different, for not drinking and for being a Christian.

How the Lord Opened my Eyes to His Word

Claudia - Vienna, Austria

Later, when I became a teenager life wasn’t that easy. I looked at my friends at school who had boyfriends and did a lot of other things like smoking and drinking alcohol and I started to desire to be like them. At this time I had stopped reading the Bible and praying, which are essential to being a Christian. After deciding to follow God’s ways again things changed...

Being a Teenager Today

Stephanie - Canberra, Australia

Being a teenager these days is not as easy as it looks. Many temptations are thrown our way, mainly in the form of alcohol, drugs and sex. That’s why I base my life on the Bible, as He shows us how we can live without such evils… and still be “cool”.

I was 14 when I got saved and I am really grateful that God saved me before my "teenage life" had begun, I assume that my teenage life would have been quite different as I am a chirpy and extravert person...

How God Blessed My High School Exams

Susy, BBus - Sydney, Australia

It was my final year at high school. My trial exams were just around the corner, but I had all these major school projects to finish beforehand. Naturally, I began to worry and panic because I felt I did not have enough time to study for the exams. But I know that God hears my prayers; I know He blesses me when I put Him first and trust Him in every area of my life.

Financial Blessings

Stephanie - Canberra, Australia

After looking over my budget I figured out that I would still be about $200 short each month and would therefore not even have the minimum amount of money needed to survive. This all seemed like a huge mountain which just rose out of no where for me, because I could just simply not see a way to earn enough money since I was also going to studying full time. I decided to put the whole situation into the hands of the Lord...

Creation in the Classroom

Photo of Andrea

Andrea - Toronto, Canada

The debate over creation vs. evolution was an exciting one for me. So when I found that we would spend a whole unit on evolution, I was excited. This would be an amazing opportunity to tell others about God through creation. I asked my teacher right away if I could do a presentation on creationism.

In my room there are two orchids, while one grew buds the other lost all its blossoms, I tried to move the plant to a different place with more light and watered it more and so on, but nothing helped! The plant became brown, eventually I realized the problem - the plant didn't have healthy roots...

How I Got Saved

Hannah - Vienna, Austria

As far back as I can remember, my mother has raised me in a Christian home. My mother took my sister, brother and I along to Christian meetings. A while ago I realised that I had to decide if I wanted to follow God. I understood that it is not enough just to visit a Christian Church with my family and friends. I wanted to be a child of God and not only a “grandchild”.

Healed From Addictive Music

Photo of Anh Dao

Anh Dao - Perth, Scotland

So when I came home I spent my time filling myself with more of his music. The situation got worse and once I was sitting in front of the PC until four in the morning. As you can see I brought myself into a very dangerous state. I felt my hunger for God, but could not pray because I my thoughts were on my “new idol”: David Garrett. It had sort of got out of control…

The Power of God’s Promises

Julia - Perth, Scotland

God gives us ways of overcoming many things. In my case I had to speak out a biblical promise. If I hadn’t, God wouldn’t have helped me. The phrase ‘you can take a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink’ suddenly became a real and meaningful saying!

How I Got Saved - Baptised in the Atlantic Ocean

Karin - Toronto, Canada

As my parents are Christians in this assembly, I had been brought up believing the Bible and knowing it was the Truth. Many of my friends started to get involved in alcohol and drugs as well as sex. I realised how selfish this lifestyle was and that it would lead me away from God. One day at a Christian meeting in England something very stirry happened that changed my life.

Left Ankle and Right Foot Completely Healed

Debbie - Sydney, Australia

It all started when I was 14 and my ankle would get weak when I walked long distances. I would roll it easily and so I could not participate in sport classes. It hurt a lot! To make things worse, the arch in my right foot caused intense pain. It got so so bad that I had to crawl around the house. Click to read how God healed me completely, once and for all!...

My Dream of Heaven

In my dream, I was sitting in my room when suddenly a very bright shining angel was standing in front of me. He was reaching out his hands towards me and said, “Come with me!“ I took his hand and we flew directly through the wall of my room, straight out towards the clouds and into the universe.

How I Could Preach to All my Friends

Photo of Toby

Toby - Christchurch, New Zealand

It started in science class, where we were learning about evolution. At home I had been doing a lot of research about things that proved that the theory of evolution is false. During every science lesson, I made short comments that contradicted evolution. I prayed that my friends would realise that I believed God had created the world, and believed evolution to be wrong, but I felt unsure about how to start preaching to people.

Teenager Healed from Alcohol, Cigarettes and Drugs

Photo of Chris

Chris - Frankfurt, Germany

Often I would take alcohol, marijuana and speed all in one evening. And I was smoking at least one pack of cigarettes each day. To finance it all I would sell some drugs. After a while I felt really empty, as if I didn’t have a heart anymore; it was terrible. I couldn’t stand being alone because of this feeling so I would meet up with my friends every day till late...
