This past week at Campion Academy several students gave their testimonies in a special Week of Prayer. They told personal stories that dealt with topics such as severe injuries, depression, and sharing the gospel with others.
Kylie Wehling, a Junior at Campion Academy, shared her story of a severe injury she suffered and how God led her through it. “Speaking for Week of Prayer really made me step back and look at all the times God was there for me, even in my darkest moments,” Wehling remarked. ”Sometimes, we forget that God works miracles in our lives every day.”
The student testimonies were received with high regard from students. Isaac Avila, junior commented, “I liked this quarter’s Week of Prayer because I got to hear from my fellow peers and classmates which made the service more relatable to me.”
Students learned about how God helped their peers deal with some extremely hard circumstances. “I know the speakers, they are my friends, but when they gave their talks I saw them in a different light,” said Jynaya Wright, senior. “They are usually always so happy and positive, but hearing their testimonies made me realize that they have their problems too.”
Wright explained how even though her friends went through some hard times, they gave their struggles over to God. “It was a huge inspiration to me to keep going even though we face troubles in our lives because God’s got your back.”
“I never thought I would share my story because I never thought it was important. But as I have heard my fellow students' testimonies throughout the year and saw the impact they had, I realized I wanted to help others too,” explained Bentlee Barry, senior. “It can be scary to share God but when you lean on Him and let Him speak through you, it becomes much easier! I feel even closer with God since sharing my testimony; it has changed my relationships with those around me and most importantly with God.”
The student testimonies were streamed live and can be viewed on Campion Academy’s Facebook page.
