Luis Palau is one of the most well-known evangelists in the world. And yet, for many years, while he stood in front of stadiums of people and witnessed thousands respond to his call to receive Jesus, his own heart was aching for his son, Andrew, who had turned away from God.
Luis and his wife, Patricia, saw him moving in the wrong direction, and they did everything within their power to guide him back. But there came a point, Andrew says, “where I had wandered so far away from God that all they could do was have faith. They just believed that God could make me into a man of God.”
On the Focus on the Family Broadcast, we’re hearing an amazing message from Andrew Palau that will bring hope to the hearts of every parent with a rebellious child … even if they’ve left your home and are “out in the world,” embracing the allure of sex, drugs, and vices that promise pleasure but ultimately lead to destruction.
Through their journey of heartache and prayers for their son, Luis and Patricia learned to:
- Remember that God can change lives.
- Never give up! Never assume someone is beyond God’s reach.
- Be a good example. Be a ‘contagious’ Christian.
- Pray faithfully – and ask your friends to pray, too.
If you’re asking questions about God, I encourage you to read our free online booklet called, “Coming Home: An Invitation to Join God’s Family.” It’ll help you understand how to discover new hope in Christ.
And if your adult child’s situation seems desperate or dangerous, please give us a call. We have caring, Christian counselors on our staff who would count it a privilege to listen to your story and to pray with you for that young man or woman that you care about so deeply. Our number is 1-800-AFAMILY (232-6459).
Access to our licensed, professionally trained counselors is a free service that we provide because we want to help you – or your wayward child – get biblical and clinically sound advice. That ministry is only available because friends like you who value what we do for families make a donation to us. Your gift makes it possible for husbands and wives and moms and dads to receive the support they need, to find healing, and to thrive.
With your gift of any amount today, we’ll send you a CD of this broadcast. And right now your contribution will help twice as many families thanks to generous friends of this ministry who have offered to match your donation dollar-for-dollar. (Check our website for details)
