Until the age of 9, Teresa had a normal childhood. From then on the house she once considered a safe haven became a place where many sad situations began to happen. Her dad would spend a lot of time outside the house and her mother began to drink very heavily each day. Theresa started helping her mum around the from a very young age. A few years later the situation got worse. Her mother started having constant fainting spells at home and spiritual attacks. Theresa’s sister who was 9 years younger than her was very rebellious. There was verbal and physical aggression between the two. Not long after, Theresa discovered that her mother had been a victim of witchcraft and that there was a hereditary evil. Just like her mother suffered, she would suffer in the future, that’s what she was told. Theresa began to have many nightmares, fear of sleeping, fear of being close to family members, fear of growing up, fear of the future. Her mother even went to wizards, made trips and works to undo what had been done, but nothing solved it , on the contrary, it became worse.

With these problems Theresa’s house was no longer the place where she felt safe. Theresa took refuge in her friends. At school she was happy and wanted to be part of the group and do everything they did. Swearing, rebellion, fighting, confusion whatever it took to get everyone’s attention, she’d do it. Over time Theresa started to feel like the girl who recieved no attention and started to wear provocative clothes to attract the attention from boys she wanted. Nevertheless she never had the relationship she wanted. She soon began very insecure and had many complexes.
Theresa used social media to fill the void she felt inside. On social media she could be the person she thought she wanted to be. She’d post revealing photos and have online relationships with several people, even boys from different countries.

She wanted to change but thought she couldn’t. Relief was all she wanted! Her mum was advised to attend the UCKG HelpCentre and not long after she followed.

Theresa took what she learnt seriously at the HelpCentre. She made a decision to stop lying and swearing but agrees that when she left the virtual relationships she became totally free. Free from the traumas she had, from the fears that she had for years. She received the Holy Spirit and today is happy and free as is her mother.

The Mindhttp://victoryyouthgroup.co.uk/2017/03/15/the-mind/ http://victoryyouthgroup.co.uk/2017/03/15/the-mind/#respond Wed, 15 Mar 2017 14:14:32 +0000 http://victoryyouthgroup.co.uk/?p=3269 The Mind

MIND

We as young people can be very weak-minded. When our mindset is weak, we accept things too easily.

We have to be brutal with negative thoughts.

When a person is weak-minded, they even start to do things that they never imagined they would do. It is as if the person starts to malfunction, just like a mobile phone when it’s not working properly.

“A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:8)

God can only work with those who are strong-minded. In this way, whatever He tells the person to do, they will obey.

A strong-minded person is not easily shaken.

God speaks in the mind and so does the devil. God’s weapon is faith and the devil’s weapon is doubt.

Tatianna Linohttp://victoryyouthgroup.co.uk/2017/03/15/tatianna-lino/ http://victoryyouthgroup.co.uk/2017/03/15/tatianna-lino/#respond Wed, 15 Mar 2017 13:40:51 +0000 http://victoryyouthgroup.co.uk/?p=3267 Tatianna Lino

Before coming to the VYG Tatianna’s financial life was practically non-existent. She was very young at the time and didn’t know what she wanted to do career wise when she left college. She was exploring most courses to gain experience, she then settled into childcare at 17 earning just the minimum wage. Initially, Tatianna didn’t mind her financial state as she believed it was enough to cope with, as she was living in her mother’s house and didn’t have many bills to pay.

Tatianna started attending the financial meetings on Monday which encouraged her to have vision in life. She then took a bold step and resigned from her childcare job to follow a different career path. A door was opened for Tatianna and she was given an opportunity to work for a company which provided the training she needed to progress in her desired job area. She was later able to progress in her desired career path and joined a company with a better job position as well as higher salary.

Since the beginning of the year Tatianna has been using her faith by giving the tithe of the salary she wanted to earn and God really honoured her faith and she was able to see the results. She was even able to purchase the car that she wanted last week.

Tatianna’s financial life today is a blessing, she says it’s not where she wants it to be yet, but she is certain that God has greater plans for her. She can now say that she has more vision and ambition in her financial life and strives to be the best in what she does.

Gloria Bennetthttp://victoryyouthgroup.co.uk/2017/03/15/gloria-bennett/ http://victoryyouthgroup.co.uk/2017/03/15/gloria-bennett/#respond Wed, 15 Mar 2017 11:50:30 +0000 http://victoryyouthgroup.co.uk/?p=3257 Gloria Bennett

Gloria made the decision to return to God in the New Year’s Night Vigil 2017. Before making this decision, Gloria was unemployed and dependent on Job Seekers Allowance, which made her very depressed. She had grudges, anger and hatred towards the church, it’s members and even God. She had bad eyes towards every good thing. This made it very hard for her to accept the fact that she needed to come back to God. Deep within, Gloria wasn’t happy and she would force herself to smile and look happy but deep inside, she felt down which led her to get involved with things she shouldn’t have.

Before                                                           After 

When Gloria made a decision to come back to God she had to forgive and seek forgiveness from those she held a grudge against and most importantly, seek forgiveness from God. Since Gloria decided to be humble and accept God, she can confidently say she has seen God work in her life. She has been blessed with two jobs as a full time Civil Enforcement Officer and a part time Police Officer, therefore she no longer needs to rely on benefits but is able to balance both for the Glory of God.

Gloria’s spiritual life is developing. She decided to take part in a movement of faith called the 21 days. During the 21 days Gloria applied herself fully and she did things she wouldn’t usually do, because she wanted a transformation from within, she wanted to be new from inside out. She didn’t allow things around her to distract her. Gloria says she has experienced a change in her character and mind set as she has let God lead her life. Now more than anything Gloria wants to continue growing in her faith and she wants to be a living testimony for the Lord Jesus. She is certain that this is just the beginning.
