Through a Wire, Across the Country and Back

hi i am 12 years od and some people might think thats too young to do anything but have i got a testimony to tell today. See i go to this camp every year and its a place where adults can’t tell you your a kid you can’t participate or no this is for grownups. And ever since the first or second year of camp (this is my 4th) i felt that i was being called to be a missionary. I figured out that i had two places tha kinda stuck out to me.  Africa and nursing homes. Anyway the one day came up when i went onto a site and met a friend. He lived in Texas and I lived in Maryland. He was apparetly very ppular in school so i thought he was very lucky, not knowing that i’d be proved wrong the very next day. The next day i said hi and he said i’m sad. i asked why. he went on and on about how he wanted to kill himself and how his life was meaningless. then i thought up to god and sayed yes!!! this must be my opportunity while being scared and sad for him at the same time. i said if you really do have nothing else to live for, live for jesus. he said you know im not a christian and i sayed it doent matter. he asked me if here’s a god out there that loves me then why is my life so screwed up.  i said i can’t tell you about how hard my life is but i can tell you a true story about people who had it worse than you and still had faith. so i told him the story of Hudson Taylor. At the end he said that he had felt better and enjoyed the story.  i was happy yet disappointed. Going through that experience made me realize if you tell someone a story their not gonna wana get saved right away. Today i still talk to him and am still trying to get him saved.
