Watched the Easter podcast, first time ever learning about Jesus, and God, and with where I am at in my life it would be foolish to move forward without accepting God into my heart and helping me on the journey and couldn’t be more thankful to have an amazing person in my life introduce God and help me to start learning and understanding. loved the podcast really amazing and hit home hard thank you!

At Skull Church Majestic when Levi was talking about what Jesus did for us, I didn’t want to live my life without giving it to him first. I knew when he asked people to go up and pray, I needed to be one of those people. Luckily, I wasn’t alone. My friend that I brought with me was feeling the same way so we stood up nice and tall and walked to the front with confidence in what we were about to do. It was time to give our lives to Christ. It was a great feeling knowing that if I always follow him I can have comfort in knowing that when I die I know where I’ll be going. It was an amazing and life changing night that I will never forget.

When I first went to your tour, I thought at first that it would be like a lot of other programs my mom tried to take me to in order to open my eyes to God. But everyone of them ended up as adult talk that I didn’t understand or take interest in. This experience really opened my eyes though, and I am for the first time in my lifetime, actually taking my relationship with God seriously and have changed my life for God.
