"Discover Your Destiny!"
by Brandon McNabb
This summer, I had the awesome privilege to help lead 24 teenagers to a deeper more intimate relationship with God! We taught on discovering your destiny through your identity. Our goal was to awaken their hearts to have more of a kingdom mindset in their everyday life, teaching them to turn to God and hear His heart for their friends, family and school.

On our week-long outreach to Sacramento, CA, the staff and the teens of 24Seven all stepped out of our comfort zones and ministered to the homeless, the church, and each other. It's hard to choose which testimonies to share about outreach, because every time we went out something good happened! I'd like to share about one of the three times when we went out with the simple goal of loving on people in the streets (and that's just what we did - stepping out and showing love to everyone we met... sitting, talking, and having fun with the homeless).

I love it that the summer program awakens hearts to God. It gives youth the ability to hear God for themselves and rise up into who they are created to be. This generation is called to carry a big torch, and I'm excited because I know that the teens who came this summer won't give up. They will always remember the summer that changed their life and awakened their heart to the very thing we were created to live in: the presence of Jesus! Our hope as a staff team is that these youth from all over will not let the flame burn out, but that they choose to let God fan the flame in their hearts, and then tell their friends, and ultimately change the world! As YWAM, our mission is "to know God and to make Him known" - this summer, we did that!
