Though the media does not get tired of showing the youth of our country being enslaved by so much evil, the UCKG Youth Group has transformed the lives of thousands of people. For example, last Saturday, more than seven thousand youths gathered in Brasilia, for the “Know how to say No” event.
To celebrate such a special day, the event was held on the future site of the Cathedral of the Universal Church in Brasilia. There were dance, theater and music presentations.
Bishop Marcello Brayner, responsible for the Youth Group work in Brazil, led the meeting. He alerted the youths to run from the slavery of this world. “It doesn’t matter how bad your problem is, if you are being called, take advantage of this opportunity. Make yourself chosen, by surrounding wholeheartedly on the Altar.” Read what the Bible says:
Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it. 1 Corinthians 7.21
Many youths, who had their lives restored, shared their testimony during the event. Like Hiorrane, who was involved with prostitution, crime and drugs. Tired of suffering, she decided to accept the invitation to go to the Universal Church. She thought she would be discriminated because of her appearance, like she had been at another church she visited, but when she was invited to join the Youth Group, she found help. After completely surrendering to the Altar, her life was fully transformed.
