126: How Can You Call Teenagers To Live A Life of Sacrifice and Purpose?

Sometimes you might assume that the students in your group are only looking for comfort, entertainment, and fun. After all, the world we live in is complex and your students have a ton of pressures that they deal with every day. However, we know that the call of Jesus is to live a life of sacrifice and purpose–and you play an integral part in helping your students realize that! Join us on today’s episode with Richmond Wandera from Compassion as he talks through how he has called young people to live a life of sacrifice and how the sacrifice of a high school girl changed his life forever.
