Our Father in Heaven has truly blessed our Emerge family with many amazing kids. Each one brings their own gift to this ministry. And today I write about a young man who reminds me of the little boy in the Bible who had five small barley loaves and two fish. God does great things with young people and through the obedience of giving what he had, God was able to multiply it and feed 5,000. Zander Dick steps out of the spotlight as if he doesn’t like to be seen; but with a servant’s heart and giving so much of himself; he truly shines. He is an amazing young man and a humble servant of God. As I watch him work diligently beside our Emerge family; still a kid but with the heart of an old soul who truly cares for and loves people. He is truly a blessing to our Emerge family and his mighty heart has blessed so many including me. I am ever so grateful that God brought us together as family.
From the Heart of Zander Dick:
“I attend Beulaville Middle School and I enjoy playing soccer, working out and reading the Bible. One thing I like to do in Emerge is ride the bus to wherever it is we minister at. Another thing I like is when we get there and see their faces and then after we minister to them see their faces again. I enjoy speaking with those we meet and listening to them tell their stories. It makes me know not to complain because they have it worse than me. When I actually see their surroundings; it makes me feel blessed that I can be a part of Gods children and that I can help and show love.”
“My favorite verse in the Bible is Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, because it makes me feel confident”
“You should never bully or make fun of someone else because you never know what they’re going through.”

God Bless You All,
God still does great things with the youth; unfortunately so many people fail to see this. But the Bible is full of young, faithful believers who stepped out at a young age and God used them because of their hearts. Zander is one of these young believers that God is using. At 13 years of age when the pressure can be so great to follow the crowd to fit in; I see a young man full of bravery. Watching him stand up for God and standout from the world as an example of what a relationship with Christ looks like. Zander continues to inspire others and have an impact for Gods kingdom as he continues to be the hands, feet and voice for our Heavenly Father.
1 Timothy 4:12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
To God Be All the Glory and Honor and Praise!
