SMC Student-Reflections on Myrtle Beach Conference
This weekend at Shabbach MB was an amazing experience. I went expecting God to do great things and thats exactly what happened. On Friday night over 500 kids either accepted Christ into their hearts for the first time or rededicated their lives to Christ. I was on security that night and I remember standing there while the altar call was given. As I stood there I watched as a sea of teenagers stood and rushed to the altar. It was an emotional moment that I'm blessed to have witnessed.
The second night was just as meaningful as Eddie James brought us amazing worship and Pastor Glenn brought the message. That night the message was about the woman who had major bleeding (Luke 8:43-48). No one was able to help her, and after many years of bleeding she heard that Jesus was in town. PG preached that Jesus not only stopped the bleeding she had on the outside… but He healed her on the inside, making her whole. Even though she was sick and couldn't run to Him she gave Him what she had and crawled her way to Him. Because of Her faith she was healed inside and out. She went from being the woman with a illness to being called "daughter." After this message the altar was filled with "bleeding" teenagers AND grown ups. I had the privilege of being part of the altar-team and being able to pray for the kids each night.
Even though by the end of the weekend I was way overtired I wouldn't have traded it for anything. This weekend reminded me why I wanted to be here in the first place. Seeing how much Shabbach effects the lives of these young people is why everyone on staff works as hard as they do. I am so blessed and thankful to be able to be a part of it.
Have a blessed week,
