I also like pro are audience to learn about how our guest came to know Jesus Christ and God use you in such a mighty way, how did that journey began view and had to get your birthday. I was raised in a home earthly speaking. I had a good mom. There was some religion in the home but not all and as I was raised or growing up I basically equated Jesus Christ on the same playing as Greek mythology. I did not understand his deity. I certainly did not understand what I had another goal that I had to get over that with the fact that I was deeply the evolutionary tree at that point in my life when I write in my undergraduate work and I was preparing for Gartner in medicine and all my life I had gone out to be a bad idea that love animal would be around the met all of the sciences that I was involved in were just deeply, deeply steeped in evolution. I heard one great teacher say said that the site should really use evolution is sadly speaking on the product that and all that.

When I was told about the price and it's interesting to note that we might years old, never about I just did my mind could not get directed not let God that I heard those believers speak about along with my learning in that field of evolution but it will go about a white older husband Yuri instead of gearing because he didn't work it in my mind.

I could not make this whole thing work because how I had been taught in evolution of training and just came to that place look like David Wright realizing it doesn't work and here's the neat way that God orchestrated my salvation. I picked a summer job at Walt Disney World the end of my freshman year in college and I was assigned to the character department and one of my jobs was to help in the electrical light lead at Walt Disney World. Well it's interesting because they find is the very good-looking people and they give a fatal part and they great people that look like me and they hide and decide to drive Alice in Wonderland, but in the electrical light parade and it must bring with me.

We had a break that back out and how you came to know Jesus will like I had never been with my knowledge, I never met a Christian that 19 years, and she stepped up and I believe her work exactly where I belong. I'm washed in his blood. I use my encrypting me that was like a light resided never world, but that was the doorway use (with and throughout about it.

Every year I would call her about once a month you I think that her Christian would defeat her faith in as soon as I would love to come back with the Scripture that would absolutely shred my argument that this was month after month after month disparate at that particular point in my life I was facing some athletic greens as well as my undergrad work at my knee out college as result of the major reconstruction on my left knee changed a lot of what I had bought my life look like and I went into the hospital then you would check in the night before and I checked in the night before and I called her allergy would you bring me that and she said what you mean about various give me my Bible and so she literally gave the hospital at night, brought Bible and you know like any other great night and so I opened it up the night before surgery and started the names of all the things that I've never heard my life that Bible setting on the spam hospital bed about, that the anesthesia well in reality and that he handed me a paper as I rated it in simple terms it basically said you die your and first time in my life.

I thought that in a lot of the witness fit Alice in Wonderland at the became current now in my mind about what she said the surgery lasted about six or seven hour contraction percent base hospital. Dr. K minute Internet seminary go straight home, don't drive, don't do anything until our next and I clearly remember they rolled me out on the labor got in but go straight Alice in Wonderland and I'm not boring I said I want to see. Here heard what you said over and over again about this Jesus Jesus made an emotional outburst 43 years ago I went in your living room. She had no mercy on your knee. Save me my other leg with Pastor Mike going down. I can remember. Try to get that full weight behind the shield in the Bible the Romans Road I what we call the road and she showed me that all the documented guide them up for Jesus and God it right that say and that the question was asked do you want you want this Christ suggest that in their living room was number five in building what preacher it was a dedicated born-again believer who love the Lord Christ and I gave my life to Christ that living and all I can say is in faith and repentance on that Friday night I saw all the ugliness of my standing by. I ran God just do not and I invited Christ into my heart. I pray that I remember right I did great Lord I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired and Jesus, I'm so ashamed and I asked my life and that night, miraculously, just like Alice in Wonderland to hold me now I belong. I would want and as result of that, I became and he became mine and not great and it was a radical change in my life. My worldview changed overnight. And now I know sick-happy new preacher old castaway behold all things become new bed versus a progressive versus day by day progression of life here. One other me that Friday night that I did not like rice well I went to Sunday school without a doctor and that I was a mage. I walked into this college-age class was probably going to college. I've never been exposed anything like this before, looked up and be guided was teaching. He was a Sgt. that I thought great day. You need a man and that this guy talk like a man. He looked like a man. He acted like a man and I just I just made her Sunday school class in my life as a new believer, and that after class game up meeting deal. I heard you gave your life to Christ. Following Friday night. Yes sir he said you and me are going slowly forward and he said were to go out and kill people but I know that the Sgt. respect you and I'm night you make me say one word out and I laughed at that and and I found that the truck like a wild man wrapped the door knocked on the door. There, I'm so good night Leo and Amanda, and encrypting that little living room the first time in my life I shared Christ and that precious woman broken about her sin fell out of her chair and trusted Christ and him only what is less than a week old Christ and I stole that woman embracing Christ both. She's just like me. Nobody and God began to break my heart souls of men and women and girls because I realized what a powerful testimony.

Neil and Michelle at one of the primary spot every Christian is to tell other people about Jesus that we can impact the culture for Jesus. If we don't help people in the culture about, and here you hear Neil story were assembled college-age girl is Alice in Wonderland just one night that Jesus was Lord Frager because of that it led to an eventual reality were deal knew that he needed to have Jesus Caroline. What a powerful testimony also book a week break so you still know Alice in Wonderland well that part of that story Alice in Wonderland Walt. I gave my life right when I and fell in love with and that the lady that I have been married 41 years right of the original alley while rating got married out by the board, powerful testimony, and to marry the woman the incredible story, my guest today is Neil Hatfield. We hear testimony just accentuates the need for every one of us to not be ashamed of Jesus to tell everybody we know what Jesus done.

Brush sharing your testimony with somebody telling what happened to Nila what happened just simply sharing what done anything something for everyone of us and if we pray every day that the minor path of every day you wake.just pray you, dear Lord, please send my day for me to tell what you done for me. When you do that. I got up and somebody. And when the Holy Spirit you just need to have the courage to say what our spirits tell you.

Did you describe, I just love your story, you have a habit of saying building world changers for the cause of Jesus Christ. We need to do what you mean by that increasing my life. I quickly realized you can't have a head on collision with Jesus Christ and saying, and God began to build a boat in Hawaii about champions all Christ and as we begin to realize so many of the great history began with Jim and we began to develop the passion interesting to me. I'm sure there is I don't find the concept of the American teenager in the world. I don't see that anywhere. It seems that our culture is let young people about the well will 1819 20 Mr. basically do whatever they want and be responsible. I don't see a progression in my Bible child adult and I think that's what the board will let go man you were in conversation charity. Great your billing will change your passion build a generation of people that are examples just like Wonderland will got a visa great preachers violate the wrong road. You and I love testimony like my away from anything that I got caught I would rather a young testimony that they were reached in a time in their life and that their commitment was so real, how old it. They wanted to be built. The Champion think were seeing that this is the first generation of young people and the air that are having to pay a price if they make Christ and I'm not a generation that and where we think that bad about that make him Christ and the workforce is did by like such a need not real what you talk about preparing young people. I recently had a lady young lady on the show with the college junior jersey and she traveled with an organization are you part of the lifework again. She speaks about the importance of defending the unborn and in addition raised at your college, I thought the criticism will become because I was polite.

She said that in comparison to when people found out she was a Christian, just vicious attacks came both from professors and from our fellow and in Arkansas are prepared to write a we are reaping the terrible benefits of the lack of preparation.

Yeah it is bad. So what you think are some of the key well. I love this quick. I really believe that we must teach young people, great but suicidal is fixed, that the lack of self-esteem that the Scripture says in Psalm 139 would be great when they are marvelous are thy works, that my shoulder look right. Well, I was years ago, the patient that Elizabeth Elliott would yes missionaries paper that day and if you ever heard a lady of elegant dictation see that I'm speaking to you young lady. He said you could not go back to the privacy of your dorm right now and disrobe and look at yourself in the bully. There."

Psalm one 3914 I will praise the bride may marvelous are thy works so little Brightwell, Elizabeth Elliott said then you are backslidden and crisp bill. I realized our young people don't see their credible value and because they don't see that value they don't understand the BD nor the value of the in my Bible training all God created three greatest first with the family and then what government was the chair that the article is that the value of the family. The Scripture says you, be fruitful and multiply wrinkle.

As you and I have you in mind from the beginning of creation God made them male. All a man leave his father and mother why going to be one more point but one want to get a lot, not man put asunder major major principles that need to be popular young and by the way they quickly clear out the in the sexual insanity in our culture to Bailey Smith to be your friend by the pool for years. Bailey would travel. Yet many of the height of that message is in America, and it was just talk about the insanity of so I think there there. Now you is a critical people. I think them understanding the God called the great family of God. I really believe brick shall young people the incredible power of the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and make they don't see the relevant church. Many of our young people compartmentalize their so-called all it is our to block 11 hour, two hours a week and yet this said that the on this rock I will build my church health villages.

I was years ago. Christian professional standing up. He said I want you and I want you to imagine the grime Christ being at the gate of hell taking that battery and crashing the gates of hell backwards in many, that is the call of the mighty church of the Lord Jesus Christ and what you would see what I got work to do. The church hasn't been the battery had been the dog and you need to know that there is mighty power in the church of the Lord Jesus Christ think that so critical and [this generation needs to see and understand that the God-given all of their work may be their vocation and how critical that it become a market business. Just the other day, the owner of the business that yet.

He called young men may not work. He said work right that nobody thought this young man out critical work yet is and how valuable work is 1031 when therefore you all.that'll be the young people of their God-given all I love watching briefly.

What are probably those are definitive things admittedly must been dealing young people and we got.

They are the great of this generation.

Chris headed out more than likely the projector in my life I would be in but somebody young woman about all of Proverbs 2980 W carriage analysis of the year. This part but needed the law work wall, the word of God to keep the law you are not working tomorrow. You are a and and we've got to build a world lost the my Bible to find the latest billing to go totally but very precious. Each media practice. This thing Alice in Wonderland, my bride solved the passion and she understood missionary date date the wall and yet she never lost the compassion I purchased young people friends don't let friends die and to exemplify in my life just staring at her with the next generation will generally mean individual social media cards give us a call today at 704984 connect with the design on social in a world crowded with viewpoints of voice.

They were dating work missionary day, but she told him about what you done her life. Friends don't let friends die and go to hell and women talking about the biblical truth that need to be shared with young people today deal with just about every day you share with your thoughts about what you call upwards way I would like to wait. We have baby but we cottage feel in young people to work with and their salvation. One of those civil rights never quit. If you're around our summer college interns say bad about never quit never quit some of that was instilled in me. In my past that led times. Just knowing that you keep going regardless of the circumstances, but it's just another way that you never quit great. We think them to be regularly that flies like brick and pulp and that along with that simple principle. This is what our staff shared all our to be on time. If failure served with the intern division we let it. Your workday starts at 8 o'clock. We watched Richard basket 754 8 o'clock to begin the work and that they look at you like, man, I've never heard this when you put the expectation that out right and that I love it. Another one that would certainly not original with populist cheap action. We just want young people do young people are integrity and that the unity is not mere words. Like live day by day. I borrowed this works. Prohibition got my we teach them that all of our suggestions or questions at all about prayer failures. A big part of what we do anyway work with people we teach them incredible power prayer that we have the will of God.

And I love watching people embrace better or a grant that kids need to see the value prayer really is important, and parents.

Listening and grandparents. Your kidney Ukraine day they need to know that you don't do anything without talking to God first.

Just this morning I will get my daughter and that in a couple days and she asked me earlier, you will what would you do and thought him however try to be careful and kids grow up needed make some of their own decisions that affect why, but I told her I can't operate.

What I think not. And I think kids need to realize the importance of everything every single thing we do need to be bathed in prayer this morning, on the grounds that our kids are all about and and their spouses, and even a grain implement a would you pray with me about this that you get near it and I will walk that power forms are interrupted your kid wears a well and and it is Blackbeard basic but we develop if you drop it if you mess it up. I think it's very watching and that we met incredible our summer program about all I think they're going into the state and we were giving them staff for where your water close and they both looked at each other. They were brothers how you want to watch the little guys that I'm not your mama and measure your about that little weight will not mere group of young people multiple teenagers fired all added up marginally out when Jeff got the trash and was a man that was in my life at Tennessee W. Murphy many years ago everything, although later I will raise up and they need to understand the responsibility leadership and there's a cost leadership and the next thing would be that you think like a ball will say that over and over again to his oldest pastor at the Sally theological seminary.

He called Michael Ball. My boss, which were not dealing with children Chris Dalton Michael and and not living in that agent America the last two arrival date that that's all that matters all that mattered if it will follow A man with great passion for.

Almost immediately, we begin work with the British People from church and God just broke my heart. You ration and a lot of energy. Working with young people generate college-age and that probably is one is best for I'm I'm really over this Chris two summers ago we crossed the great Mart will not be considered our journey we don't work with large.

She found that the smaller groups more reporting we crossed that 100,000 young people to come through our program over the last, and that it is just as they called it the summer will be back in the 60s hundred thousand people gathered smoke go back to rebel against the Scriptures. They let that love that they change the face of Europe and America and I'd always fall more. Why can't we get ready that could take ration towards the new how to add that I find your Reach GPL and the Work Reach up, Reach Website, All Kind of People and See If We Can Help.
