Amber was her name. I didn’t see her as I preached. During the altar call there were over 280 people standing before me. I spoke to them about confessing, believing, and surrendering. Surrender… yes, surrender. True conversion only occurs when we fully surrender. It is still an all or nothing Gospel. We must preach it the way Jesus did. After sharing with them, we prayed and as we prayed, tears fell. Close to three hundred individuals were passing from death to life that very moment. Then I gave the microphone to our field-coordinator, John Douglas and he proceeded to stress the importance of discipleship.
I quickly existed the stage and made my way to the bleachers. I was getting a birds-eyes view of the Harvest and thanking the Lord for His faithfulness. As I was thanking the Lord, a young lady tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I could pray with her friend. I said I would be honored too. She then led me to Amber, a 15 year old girl with her head in her hands sobbing. At first, I tried to speak with her, but she was way too upset to communicate with me. Her friend began to tell me her story. I then stopped this friend and spoke directly to Amber. I told her that I was willing to listen, if she was willing to talk. Then, I shared with her that I cared more deeply that she realized and that God brought my team and me to her school to share His love for her. Almost immediately, she wiped her tears and began to talk.
