"Go and make disciples of all nations..." Matthew 28.19
From Youth Workers
World Youth Day:
“Let me begin by saying how wonderful and effective Bishop Plouffe thought the YtY ministry was during WYD. He said it literally saved his sessions. He was so complimentary and appreciative of the work that was done.”“I was at a Catechetical site where a Youth to Youth team did praise and worship and skits before the catechesis. I wanted to thank you; it was very well done. They had a wonderful level of enthusiasm and obviously were very excited about their faith.”
“I was extremely impressed with the program you had during our three days of catecheses. You truly are gifted from God and the Spirit is so evident in you all. The treasure skit moved me and made me reach deeper into my soul to remember the main reason for WYD – it was what you pulled out of the treasure chest (crucifix).
"I saw the presentation at St. Gerard's, Lansing and I was so moved by the young people, the way they were into it. Their faces just glowed. If these are the young people that are going to be leading our Church, we're in great hands. I've seen lots of plays and none have moved me like this. I was crying and laughing and had chills all the way through it.”
"I have heard from many, many people about the impact that Salvation Story has made on them. One couple, who doesn’t attend church, attended the play. They have been telling everyone about the program and what it meant to them."
"Even our kids were touched by the program. We had a couple of “tough” kids who thought they were too cool for the program, or anything about God. The night after the performance, their mother called me to say that her children were telling their friends about how cool it was..."
"My daughter was able to see young people who were not jealous, self-serving or mean. Every day I pick her up from school and wonder what stories I will hear about who hurt who, and how. I picked her up from Salvation Story and she was HAPPY. I had to come back to see, and I was moved. Thank you for showing my daughter so many beautiful things..." "Words cannot express how very grateful I am to you for bringing Salvation Story. Everyone I have spoken to, without exception, thinks it was the best thing that has happened around here in a long time - and of course it was! What could be better than truly sharing the Good News?"
"Every step of this adventure had the hand of God on it. From having the initial ideas to the proposal of to the parish council; from the safe flight across the ocean to the adventures shared by the YtY members who came. So many thing could have gone wrong, but the Lord was watching over us; our youth's lives were changed by Youth to Youth's visit - forever."
