God Story: What Does Love Look Like Anyway?

This past Wednesday night at the Fuel Youth service, Pastor J. shared an awesome testimony about his recent trip to Boston. He traveled there with My Bro' who played the drums to lead worship for a Power and Love Conference.

While on the subway, J. and My Bro' met a nine year old autistic boy. Autistic children don't take well to strangers, but Pastor J. felt the leading of the Holy Spirit to pray for this little guy. After obtaining permission from the boy's mother, Pastor J. and My Bro' prayed. At first the boy starting hitting Pastor J's hand, then the change. The boys started to hold onto Pastor's J's arm and laid his head on Jeremiah's shoulder.

Later, Pastor J and My Bro' met the mother and boy, and the boy ran to Pastor J. to greet him, again acting with affection. The mother, with glassy eyes, looked at Pastor J. with a look of gratitude. Autistic children, not only don't take kindly to strangers, but they also have difficulty showing affection and have memory problems.

This is what Love Looks Like!
