The girls met in the audiorium with our speaker from last week, Alyssa Paulsen. She spoke about how it is so important for girls to base their sense of worth in God and not in guys. The picture below is Alyssa with her cousin and TC student, Hayley. Both of them are involved in the USA Ambassador pageant. See last week's post for more info about this program.
The guys met in the gym with Justin Burkholder, youth pastor and husband to one of our Spanish teachers. He spoke about the internet and moral purity. His message was direct and heart-felt. He spoke about why sexualized images are harmful, the path to freedom from this trap, and how important it is to commit to Jesus & receive forgiveness.
