"I AM"

Two weekends ago we were blessed enough to come together as one youth, one family, one church before the presence of the Lord for the purpose of seeking Him and knowing Him. Embracing the theme "I AM", we dove into the seven "I AM" statements of Jesus which can be found in the book of John.


I AM THE GATE [John 10:9]

I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD [John 10:11]

I AM THE BREAD [John 6:35]

I AM THE RESURRECTION AND LIFE [John 6:35]

I AM THE LIGHT [John 8:12]

I AM THE TRUE VINE [John 15:1]

I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE [John 14:6]

Joel : Life After NazFest


My weekend at Nazfest was probably the best weekend I've had in years. Being able to be with the people I know and love made it very special for me. The “I AM” theme was wonderful and yet I have so much to learn as my life goes on. Praying side by side with the people I know and being with them made me realize that as we prayed, we’re known as brothers and sisters to one another. Only having one brother who was born with autism made me feel alone. My brother has been away for seven years in Wood Services. My brother David is very happy but being home a lot made me feel lonely. I do not have a brother nor sister to talk too or to play with. Most time I conquered that feeling of lonliness but at times when I couldn't conquer it I felt like "why me; why must I be alone". At Nazfest when we were having our prayer, I realized when I prayed and mentioned that they are my brothers and sisters, it clicked. Something opened up in my mind telling me that I’m never alone. With the people I know and love, the people I see every day of my life, they are my brothers and sisters. I’ve been blinded by my own darkness and stress. Nazfest, made me see the light and I followed through and that stress of being alone is now gone. I see things and feel a bit differently but its all good because I realized I will never be alone. With Jesus and God as my witness, they are always with me. Everyone at church, in college when making new friends, being with my closest friends, they are my brothers and sisters that I still connect with in my everyday life. I see that I now have the light inside me and every day from here and on as my life goes forward, I Joel Antonio Santos will never be alone. I will always be with the right people in my life.
