Wow that was a really really inspirational story! I had tears in my eyes!

It was a great story showing how people can truly give spiritual hope to those who really need it most.

Great story! I wish I had some in mind.

Wow! I dont have any stories yet, but I am sure something will come up at youth that is worth sharing. So , I have never spoken at youth, but your whole opposite way thing really interests me ( I am only 14 :) And I am thinking about going up and chatting peoples ears off about the OPPOSITE WAY MOVEMENT...and I really need your help, what should I say like to start and then how should I end? I really want people to hear about it and I would be a great experience for me :)
Thanks guys

Now that's exactly what He's talking about! Faith in action. Living the Opposite Way.
I love the Life of Reilly column - it was a bummer when he quit writing for SI - it was the one article that I always looked forward to reading out of my brother's subscription.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, guys. It's very encouraging to know that there are others living the life that He wants us to live.

God bless you all.

I read the story and it sounded really awesome! Too bad I don't totally understand what happened.. I guess my English (especially 'Football English') ain't good enough to really understand what the article is saying.. I don't have any stories yet.. All I know is that the theme at my church is 'The Opposite Way'. But I think I already said that. Something that happened a little while ago is pretty cool. One of my best friends got baptized a few weeks ago and she invited friends of school and one of them like never goes to church so we prayed to God and asked him if she could please come that night and she did! :D One of the youth leaders said that he'd never seen so many people at a service either so that's cool! :) So, I think it's a real cool idea to put these kind of stories on your blog! God bless :)

I just want to say that i'm really sad that your not going to be at Creation Fest NW. I asked Creation Fest directly if Leeland was coming and they say that they tried but you were booked. =[[
