Looking at the photo, you will see three 12 year-old girls who are the role-model leaders in the class. If you knew the Ecuadorian culture as I do, you would know further why I was so excited about being there. I knew that at least with Jesus being proclaimed to them at this age they would have a fighting chance to not be trapped in the ways of the world, nor drawn into the culture of unmarried motherhood by age 14, nor lose their virtuous ways and innocent charm they possessed on this day.
Where else but in a Christ-centered environment can this happen? (And this may be why America is in such chaos, reflected by our defiant youth and growing, Christ-less oversight ) Help will not come from godless secular schools, nor from faithless parenting, nor from worldly friendships, nor from earbuds that shout rebellion, nor from a governement that offers no protection for the pre-born, etc., but help will come only from where there is New Life in Christ preached, taught an lived by adults who know that He is the answer to a life full of character and hope and purpose, with eternity to boot. To make it personal, the blue-jeaned girl with the holy jeans is named Stephanie. I will tell her next week that you who care are praying for her. KA
