"Jesus is the only one who can offer you a fulfilled life"

My name is Andres Patricio Fernandez Segura, I am 20 years old and I study Pharmacy Chemistry in the Universidad de Valparaiso.

I was born in Concepcion in 1983, at the age of 6 I accepted Christ as my personal Savior in the Hualpencillo (Concepcion) Corps (church). When I was very young I understood that Jesus is the only one who can offer us a fulfilled life and the Salvation for your life, for eternity.

The family I was born into is Christian and when I was 8 years old we had to move from Concepcion and go to Santiago to The Salvation Army Training College because of the calling my parents answered to, of giving their whole lives and time to the Lord.

After 2 years in the Training College, my parents were commissioned as Salvation Army Officers and their appointment was the Valparaiso Men's Shelter. While my parents were there, I understood that there are many people in this world who have nothing, I could see how they would destroy themselves and die because of their addictions and I saw that if I am a child of God, these things couldn't come into my life.

I also understood that the job my parents have is important because the love that we give to people that have lost everything can turn their lives around with Jesus walking beside them, forming a family, that they probably never had and wanted to. Confirming my understanding as a teenager about what God wants for our lives, if we give it to him. He protects us, gives us love and tranquility for our lives.

In Valparaiso I started to come to the Playa Ancha Corps, where I was enrolled as a Soldier (active member of the church) that way, thank God publicly for everything he has given me, starting with my family and what I am currently. That is why I praise Him with all my strength and also to tell about all the love I feel towards God.

As a young person, I have gone through many situations in which I have suffered a lot, but in each difficulty I know that I can count on Jesus who is my quiet place, my support, my strength and thanks to him I can trust and I know that nothing bad will happen if I follow him.

Do you think it is hard to leave everything that ties you to the world? With Jesus you can, he gave his LIFE for us, would YOU give your life for someone else?

God gave his only sun in sacrifice to save YOUR LIFE (John 3:16)

He can forgive you for your sins, heal your wounds and make you a new woman or man, free and happy for the rest of your life.
"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He restores my soul
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
Psalm 23:1-3

God bless you!
