Leader Testimony // Johnny Cross

“I grew up in a Christian home with a family that loved God. But at just 12 years old, I began to partake in drugs, alcohol, and many other things that are of this world. I was walking down a path of destruction and I didn’t ever think about the Lord while I was doing so. But in the midst of my sin and rebellion, all it took was one weekend for God to change my life forever.”

Leader Testimony // Jenny Grado

“I remember when Calvary Chapel East Anaheim came down to my neighborhood in Downtown Anaheim and hosted a VBS during summer. At the time, I didn’t believe in any god because of how much my parents hated each other. I would ask God if He were real and if He was, if He would please change my mother and father, but nothing happen. So I just stopped begging. But little did I know that my life would soon be changed forever.”

Leader Testimony // Catania Calavitta

“I’m a sucker for happy endings. The mom lives, the family gets to keep the dog, the curse is broken, and my personal favorite, true love prevails. It’s what I love about fairy tales. The prince always finds the princess and they inevitably live happily ever after, and that day came for me in the spring of my junior year of high school. While I was ready to have the sun set on our happily ever after, the clock struck 12 and reality hit: my Prince Charming was Mormon.”

Beauty in the Process | Emily Pandhi

“As one dry season is replaced by another, God’s hand never ceases to be at work. In the midst of the valleys and deserts, growth is still possible; in fact, sometimes it is because of these things that we truly learn how to depend on Him. And I am extremely thankful that our God is not one to merely get us through the struggle without letting us get something from it along the way.”

God at Work: Claire Greene

“I had recently been going through a dry season in my life.  I hadn’t been hearing God’s voice as much as I usually did and He had really been testing my faith.  For me, not hearing God’s voice was really hard.  It began to get more and more difficult to focus on Him. But then God showed me that just because I can’t hear Him doesn’t mean that He can’t hear me.  I learned that you can’t let yourself forget who God is just because things aren’t easy.”

Last Saturday, our high school students and leaders all got together at the Kwan’s house to hang out, watch Nacho Libre, and play some Super Smash Bros. And although watching the movie and playing games was fun, the best part of the night was being able to spend it with one another.

God at Work: Megan Kaura

It’s so easy to get caught up in only focusing on big, clearly visible things that happen in ministry, but sometimes the personal, internal transformations that are going on in people’s lives individually can often go unnoticed. Every Tuesday in the month of March, we will be posting a testimony of what God is ministering to and teaching one of our students. This week’s student testimony belongs to Megan Kaura, one of the sophomore girls in the high school ministry.
