Q. How can I correspond with or set up a meeting one-on-one with Victor?

A.  As stated above, Victor is not a counselor. Additionally, in order to be a good steward with the time and gifts God has given him to minister to youth, his travel schedule and commitment to his family does not permit him meeting one-on-one with individuals.

Once again, he strongly encourages you to meet with a pastor in your area if it is personal in nature.

Prayer Request

STEP 1

God loves you and has a plan for you!

The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”—a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10). But here’s the problem:

STEP 2

Man is sinful and separated from god.

We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23). The good news?

STEP 3

God sent his son to die for your sins!

Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”(Romans 5:8). But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives! “Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).

STEP 4

Would you like to receive god’s forgiveness?

We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty.

STEP 5

PRAY TO ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR

SUGGESTED PRAYER

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I trust and follow you as my lord and savior. Guide my life and help me to do your will. In your name, Amen.”

Warning signs/info: Teen suicide
First of all, it is important to realize that an attempted suicide is a cry for help. Troubled teenagers who make suicide attempts are signaling that they feel overwhelmed with life and the stresses that come with it. An attempted suicide is usually also an indication of depression. This can mean that a teenager has feelings, thoughts and stressors that he or she cannot handle any more. They try to solve the problem by killing themselves. You can help a troubled teenager by showing support and helping him or her get the help needed to learn to deal with issues.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Spiritual Warefare Resources:

Spiritual Warfare: Christians, Demonization, and Deliverance by Dr. Karl I. Payne

As Christians, we play into the hand of Satan and his demonic host when we approach demonic warfare as a theoretical game or curiosity rather than a life-threatening conspiracy from the pit of hell.  Spiritual Warfare: Christians, Demonization and Deliverance is a transferable, step-by-step training manual on spiritual warfare. It focuses on clarifying and explaining “how-tos” for recognizing and resolving attacks from the world, the flesh and the devil.

Biblical Counseling and Outreach – Dr. Henry Brandt:

Discipling Believers to Grow Through Life’s Struggles

Life is hard. It can be even harder without teaching and guidance to deal biblically with life’s problems.  God often uses trials to strengthen the faith of His children and teach them His ways. But believers need God’s perspective on how to cure their problems, so they can become the fruitful disciples that God desires.

Biblical Counseling Outreach provides free, online discipleship resources that train believers all over the world how to “live God’s way” — teaching them to obey all that Jesus commanded. (Matt. 28:20)
