Let’s Change the Headlines

Posted on by Bonnie Rodriguez

In just a few week’s time in our city, the headlines read:

1 Bullet + 1 Gun= 2 High School Students Arrested 
On his birthday, his 13-year old sister hugged him. Then he shot her in the head.
3 teens eluding cops charged with murder after a teen in stolen car is killed in crash

All three of these incidents are tragic, and the effects were felt at our City Life centers as young people talk about friends being arrested and dying senseless deaths.   We want to change the headlines this summer!  You never know who God will bring through our doors this summer.  But we do know the transforming power of Jesus and believe He uses Summer Daze to change the direction of these young lives.

After a summer at City Life KIX, Isaac recently told one of our volunteers that his life has been changed forever!  He never went to church, never read the Bible, he had no idea who God was until he stepped into our City Life site at Jordan Commons.  His friend Kevin invited him, and now he comes faithfully every Friday night.  He has soaked up the truth about God and having a relationship with him through Jesus.  He recently sat down with KIX volunteer Joey, who said, “Isaac didn’t know anything about God before coming to Summer Daze.  He is now confident Jesus has saved him and is changing him.”
