Stories - Experiencing God In A New Way
Flor grew up going to church but didn’t have a personal relationship with God. When a friend invited her to youth group she decided to try it. It was the first time she had heard the word grace. At the time she was suffering from some severe back pain due to scoliosis, which she has had since she was born. She got invited to the Alpha healing night and was prayed for by a group of strangers. “I didn’t know any of them, but they were willing to pray for me and truly cared for me.” Her pain was immediately gone after the prayer and she has not suffered any pain near as bad as what she had been suffering. For the first time she knew that God really loved her.
After that she became more involved in the church, becoming a summer intern, and now is living in the Wagner House as a full time intern and working in the church office. “I started letting go of the old way I thought of Jesus and church and realized that He has an actual purpose for me.” She discovered that she has a gift for teaching kids and currently leads our 5th and 6th grade Wednesday night class. “Its just completely transformed my life knowing that love that Jesus has for me and to know that He loves me in a unique way and that He has a unique purpose for me”.
