Sarah’s Story

I have horrible stage fright and am terrible at public speaking. On the last day of our trip to serve the refugees here in Pittsburgh, we spent the day preparing for the annual talent show held for all the Nepali refugees. YWAM asked if someone wanted to share their testimony while the judges were deliberating. I could feel God telling me to do it. He gave me the courage to share my testimony with almost 75 people. I was able to get up on stage in front of Nepali kids, adults, grandparents, YWAM staff, and my team members and share my story about finding Jesus and what He has done for my life. I could feel God’s presence so much. After I was done I had so many people come up to me and tell me how powerful my testimony was. I was told to keep sharing my story with people because it’s a great one. We spent the rest of the night dancing, singing, and just having a great time with all the kids. This was a really rare moment for me when I did not care about who had texted me, who had snapchatted me, or really about anything else that was going on. I was living in the moment, without a care in the world, and was so happy. I realized that God does want me to share His word with others, and that He created me to do so. It was a night I will never forget.
