“I Want to Pass it Forward”Posted: 05 May 11 | By: NG Team
Katrina from the Central Team tells us about what the New Generation Team in Sweden meant for her.
“Thanks to the New Generation Team I dared to live out my life as a Christian and follow Jesus for real when I was in college. Their support during my time there gave me the opportunity and courage to live everyday life as an adventure with God. My friends and other students in my college started to notice the overflowing love in me and God became more visible to others trough my actions and my attitude.
They wanted to know more about where my joy and passion for life came from, and I had many life-changing conversations with young people from all different backgrounds. I was a missionary among hundreds of young people that will go on to influence the society of tomorrow, and although it was tough at times, with God’s help and the Teamers’ support I was able to make a difference.
The reason to why I chose to do a gap year with New Generation is obvious! I wanted to pass it forward! All the support, encouragement, prayers and resources the Teamers invested in me meant the whole world to me and I want to mean something to someone else. I don’t believe that I can change the whole world, but I know I can mean the whole world to one person. I’m absolutely astonished by how much I can give to others and the difference I can make just by doing a gap year!
The young people out there need your support! Join the Team! It’s the best thing I’ve done so far!”
