Youth With A Mission/Dakota Deville


God is the righteous judge to whom all must give answer. As creator and sovereign Lord over all creation, God has the right and authority to hold us accountable to Himself. It reassures us to know the righteous judge keeps a watchful eye on the pathways of his faithful CHILDREN!
Hi,
For those of you who don't know me I'm Dakota Deville. I'm 19 years old and I live in Seabrook, TX. I wanna tell you how God has changed my heart. I was lost and caught up with so much things of this world. I tried to use anything to fill this hole inside me, anything like people, activities, food, drugs, alcohol, hobbys, music anything that is on this earth I tried to "use" or make me just forget about life in general. I didn't care about anything, I was a careless person. Cold and hard hearted. I didn't feel love from anything, just hurt and bad results from any "love" from things in this world. I didn't know what true love was. Until about 2 years ago one of my great friends introduced me to Jesus Christ. I knew of him just didn't know him know him. Well Jesus Christ busted into my life at that moment and told me how much value I had to him, how much I was loved by him and the huge price he has payed for me, for me? I thought? He died for ALL my sins and ALL sins of the world. He truly filled that hole inside of me that nothing else could, he broke down so many walls in my life and healed brokenness inside me. Ever since then I got this hunger to know our God our father, and too let others know what Jesus can do to our life! I have this opportunity to go on a internship discipleship school March 31st 2015 called Calling All Skaters. Skateboarding has been my hobby for a while now, but I started to taking it seriously through out high school and God is giving me this opportunity to do something great with something I love doing! I will be going to La, California and the first 3 months there will be learning discipleship and the next 3 months I will be going over seas to reach out the skateboarding community and introduce them to Jesus Christ and just love them all together with skateboarding. This is a non profit organization internship so I will need to raise $6,000 by March 31st. There is no minimum or maximum donation. All donations will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
