There is hope for you. You don’t have to walk down a path of destruction. You are worth far more than the life you are settling for and if you want a new life, there is one for you. You are so loved. (Jeremiah 29:11; John 10:10) #skad #youth #outreach #warpedtour #bringyourdarknesstolight #hope #addiction
Do you know what it feels like to feel completely alone? As if not a single person in the world is going through what you’re going through? It’s an empty place and unfortunately there are so many people around the world that experience that on a daily basis. Our SKAD Community Nights are formed to help teens have a safe place and an outlet to come share their hearts, but since we do not have our meetings all over the country, we go out on outreach to various music festivals where there is never a shortage of teens in attendance. Our vision is to give these young people an opportunity to have an encounter that could change their lives, the way they see themselves, where they put their hope, and knowing that freedom is available for them. Last weekend we set up our SKAD tent at a music festival called South By So What?! We had a makeshift ‘Bring Your Darkness to Light’ board (*You can take part of this at Warped Tour 2014) set up to give teens the opportunity to share the brokenness in their hearts. We explain to them that if they are struggling with something, it can be darkness and by sharing it, they are shining light on it and they are less likely to be consumed by the weight of it. Having these young people do this, is an open door to minister to their hearts and encourage them. Whether we pray for them, hug them, high five them or whatever, we want to be able to love them where they’re at and show them they’re not alone.Â This card was filled out by a sweet girl named Hailey. She told me that people bully her all the time and I had the amazing opportunity to tell her of her worth and value. I was able to tell her that the Creator of the Universe has a specific plan for her life and she belongs to Him, so she was perfectly created. Hailey is just one of the many kids we were able to talk to, extend love to and encourage hope to, this past weekend. We received thousands of cards like this last year on Warped tour and we are ready to embark on another summer of outreach. Many young people are hurting and in desperate need of hope and we are humbled to be a physical representation of light to this generation. Please continue to pray for us as we are getting ready to venture out on ourÂ Warped TourÂ outreach this summer.Â Our set up at SBSW?! festival March 14-16. Our volunteers talking to teens that dropped by our table.
