Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

How Youth Can Change Their Lives

I was in our village full of thoughts, whereby my mother told me to go and tell a story to my neighbors children which could change that behavior. They used to be misbehaving in our village, so i went to perform the work or duty that my mother gave me. After that i encouraged them to abstain from the sexual transmitted love affairs,drug abuse & also bad company. By good luck they heard my advice and keep it in the finger tips so they decided just to change their bad behavior. They are now living good life they always congratulate me from my good advice. I also pray for them to continue living that better life in christ and also knowing and following good direction.
