SabeloTESTIMONIAL

My name is Sabelo. I’m 16 and in grade 10. The Reach4Life lunch break groups are becoming popular in our school. We get to talk about anything, God, family issues, sex, dating and all. I never saw sex in God’s point of view. I just thought sleeping around is cool, TV stars are doing it all the time. But in our group we discussed sex as created by God; therefore I need to abide with God’s rules for sex if I really want the best benefits of this gift. So I have decided to stop fooling around and wait. I’m confident about my decision because I am surrounded by other young people who have decided to wait. Thank you Reach4Life for coming to my school, our break times are exciting and our lives will never be the same.
