    For some reason I'm 13 and I search on the NET all the time for colleges. I already know what I want to do and I think God wants me to too. I have a REAL intrest in world missions. I want to change schools next year and go to a Christian school b/c the school I'm at has to many people who put a bad influence on me which i want to change b/c I'm afraid that I will turn away from God. If I do not get a scholorship to a Christian school which I REALLY think i will (not meaning to brag but im good at baseball). This I hope will help me. If i do not get that scholorship then I'm going to go into the army for 2 years and save money for a car. Then the army will pay for my college (I've been researching lol). Then I will go to college and study world missions.
    If anyone has any advice of colleges, classes that will help, or just other advice I will gladly take it. Thank you and I really need links if you give colleges b/c I have yet to choose my college and I really need the receirments for the college soon. Thank you for your help.

    It's great that you want to live for Jesus. We must live out our faith in the real world. Are you pulling your friends up or are they pulling you down. Just remember your faith in Jesus will see you through. Without faith it is impossible to please God.

    The strongest Christians are those faced with adversity. If you want to get stronger then take a stance among non-believers.

    Ywo of my best friends in high school were both Christians and never said one word to me about church or Jesus. When I went to visit one of them several years later he was quite surpriised to find out I had become a Christian shortly after high school and was pastoring at the time. He looked shocked because he realized that he had never spoken to me about Christ and the gospel.

    Start winning people to Jesus and start discipling them and you will not have any extra time to get into trouble.

    If you are good at baseball, I would suggest keep playing. Our Pastor went to college on a golf scholarship.

    Get the very best education you can while you are in school now and that will prepare you for college.

    Stay involved with your youth group at your church.

    You know I can even remember when I turned 13. It is a very exciting time in life, so many opportunities. Praying for you.
