Before coming to HYC, I had never been exposed to the gospel in its full capacity. Hiawatha is where I discovered Jesus, but being transformed by His love is more than just hearing Who Christ is. God revealed Himself in massive ways, knowing I couldn’t rationalize His presence into coincidence. Amidst my heart softening experiences, He placed amazing people in my life who showed me more of Jesus. Never before in my life had someone taken the time to invest in me the way the staff did. The love they poured out felt like a funnel right from God. Hiawatha is where my head, heart, and soul finally were at peace with one another.
