2004 LifeLight Stories and Testimonies
Well about two weeks before the 2004 Lifelight event I was approached by a Christian about my problem with drugs and alcohol, You see I had been drinking heavily, taking pills that I wasn't supposed to, and smoking marijuana.
|I went to the concert and Mark Hall (Casting Crowns) gave his testimony before the song "Voice of Truth" it touched my heart and for the first time I heard the truth of the love and comfort I was searching for..And it was all from Jesus.
My friend told me that I needed to quit and that if I didn't she was sorry, but she would have to stop being my friend. I went to bed that night and deciding what was more important, the drugs and alcohol? Or my friends. I decided that my friends were more important and since that day so long ago I have been sober from every substance I was on.
I had never thought about being a Christian and ridiculed the churches and all the music that praised Jesus. Later in the week after quitting I was confronted by my friend again who asked me if I wanted to go to the 2004 Lifelight Festival. I asked if any bands were there and the reason I decided to go was Thousand Foot Krutch.
I tried to get the money to go and I couldn't. As I was about to tell them I couldn't go my friend's mother following what God had meant her to do gave me to money to go and money to spend also. So I was able to go. We got there and when I started to watch the bands I thought maybe there was more to this Christian music.
I listened all day until the evening when on the Main stage by some will of God the stage was running a few bands late. I went with my friend to the Superchic concert though they were not my type of music it was pretty entertaining. My friend then said she was going with her mother to see a praise band called "Casting Crowns" and after hearing about a mishap with her mother at Sonshine I decided I didn't want to leave her alone. I went to the concert and Mark Hall gave his testimony before the song "Voice of Truth" it touched my heart and for the first time I heard the truth of the love and comfort I was searching for..And it was all from Jesus.
I accepted Christ that day and since then I turned my entire secular band to a Christian Metal band called 4-Ever. I have started a ministry that I plan to take around based on taking care of the drug problem with Jesus's love. I have grown and I will not ever miss the fun and the love at Lifelight. This event is definitely a show of the love of our Savior Jesus Christ and our Father God. I will be happy to celebrate my birthday into Christ at this years 2005 LifeLight.
God bless all of you who make this possible. I love you all! Your brother
This was my first ever Life Light Festival, and let me tell you, it was absolutely amazing!! One of the most outstanding spiritual movements I've ever known! It brought me so much closer to God through the ministry of the music, prayer, speakers...it was great! I'm going to be a vivid Life Light goer from here on in...I believe in our Savior Jesus Christ and I believe he lives in and for me...

This was my first time to Life Light and it was awesome! I surrendered myself to Christ just this past March and God revealed himself to me in an incredible, unexplainable way. The testimonies given by the musicians on the stage this year were people with incredible testimonies which I can totally relate to - people I can't easily find in my daily life. It is hard to explain, but it touched me to find other people like me, with similar revelations, on stage at Life Light. I feel like such a 'Rookie' with my new life in Christ, and these 'Veterans' encouraged me with testimonies and songs. I listen to KNWC always! I praise the Holy Spirit working in you to do Life Light so that people like me can use Life Light as a tool to bring others to Christ. God has truly blessed us through your work!

I just want to tell you of our experience this year with Lifelight. We have an exchange student from Holland with us this year. He is 15 years old and came to us as an atheist. He was willing to go to church with us but had no time for God and did not believe he even existed. Through the Lords intervention over the weeks prior to Lifelight and then spending the weekend listening to the awesome music and testimonies, on Sunday morning in the pouring rain he went forward and accepted the Lord. Praise God!! It is amazing how God works. I was impatient Sunday morning wishing that the praise and worship would end and we would get to the message. We could see the clouds rolling in but isn't that just the way God works. God was there and he was talking to this boy the whole time. Thank-You for the awesome experience we had at Lifelight. It was a great time and we look forward to next year!!
