"One of the most impactful experiences I've had was when I was in Italy I was on EF tour with a couple friends of mine and my favorite teacher Mrs. Peck. We were eating dinner and for some reason, I got really upset and I got anxiety... I don't know how else to explain it. 

I went up to my room and I cried. I can't explain why I was so upset. Then Mrs. Peck came in and she asked if she could talk to me and if she could pray for me. At the time I was not religious. I had lost my faith, so I was like "Sure, I suppose."

While she was praying, she said this statement to me, "Christ will die for you alone because you are that great and you are that special and He loves you."

I can't explain it, but in that moment I felt feelings I had never felt before and something just clicked in me. Since that moment, I got baptized, I go to church every Sunday, I'm involved with volunteering, and I go to youth group every week!"
