Let’s pick up where we left off! 50 kids just got saved and the doors opened for us to go to different schools and youth groups all around Orlando!
So this connection I’m not totally sure how we got but I know that however it happened was definitely God ordained. This next story starts at a youth group called K Life.
K Life had three different groups that would meet at their garage. We were able to hang out with some elementary aged kids and play games with them, then was the middle schoolers and finally it was the high schoolers. We did our assembly for the high schoolers but the response was almost non existent haha! From the outside it looked like nothing had happened and that the night flopped. It even seemed like a total failure to me!
After the event had ended we went and got some burgers with the guys from K Life youth group. I got food poising from it and it had me regretting ever going there haha but thats not the story!
Everyone ordered and went and sat down and just started talking with each other and this is where the story starts. A girl from this school called The First Academy had heard Jon Jon speak at her school before and for the last year she had been trying to get Jon Jon and the Circuit Riders to come back to her school! She had no idea we were in town until we showed up at her youth group!
She was beyond stoked and kept asking if we would be able to come to her school while we were in town. That night she texted her teacher and asked if we’d be able to use a room and shortly after we got a reply and the teacher said yes! So we planned to go and just spend lunch with them!
We show up at the school and start walking to the class expecting there to be about 10-15 people there and we walk into the class and there are 60 people all waiting for us! The class was packed! All the desks were taken and kids were standing everywhere with almost no space left in the class!
A few of our guys started sharing on the message of faith and how we need to step out in faith and pray for people! He shared story after story about how God used him to pray for people and they were encountered!
A student in the class was so stirred and wanted to see God move right away haha! So he stood up and said “You guys are talking about healing and all this so why don’t we pray for the people that are sick in the class!” There were at least like 10 people that were in braces for knees or wrists or something like that. So all the students started huddling around their friends praying for each other and God moved so wildly! Everyone left healed and empowered to pray for each other! The whole time the teacher was in back of the class bawling her eyes out saying she’s never seen students pray for each other before!
60 kids!! They told us after we had finished there that even with weeks and weeks of promoting they only get at most like 20-30 people to show up, but with only one day of promoting it 60 people showed up and all encountered God!!! It was probably one of the tour highlights for every single on of us!
Stay tuned for Part III. It keeps getting better and better!
