He wants you as you are.

“Last year I went to Destino’s Fall Retreat for the first time. There I decided I wanted God to be my Lord and savior. I’d been thinking that I had to get my life together, but Jesus doesn’t want you to get your life perfect, He wants you as you are.

I realized no matter how hard I tried I’d never be perfect. Trying to become perfect before God is an impossible dream. God accepts us as we are, and then He does His work inside us. It was after this realization that I decided to give my life to Him.

At Fall Retreat 2015, Ruben shared the story of how his life was changed, and was ready to be baptized. Over the year he helped a Destino staff member lead a men’s Bible study.
