I saw H.Y.P.E perform in Germany. I have never in my life been so moved to see youths so determined to improve the lives of other youth. I wish there was a group like them when I was struggling to be me in a world full of copy cats. God has blessed them with a talent beyond their years. They are changing the world one adolescent at a time.

About two months in advance i was told that a group known as HYPE would be coming to Okinawa for the first time. From what i had heard they were an excellent group of individuals zealous for communicating God's love in a vibrant approach through the fine arts. I was excited to meet them and see how God was working in them but did not expect such power of the Holy Spirit working through them. I witnessed God revealing himself, healing, renewing, strengthening, and welcoming hearts back who longed for his mercy. Hype was simply a cup presenting living water to thirsty hearts. I was amazed by their talent but it was the hearts of the team that was the real testimony of God's power, grace, and awesome love. They encouraged me to be bolder in my faith and surrender my life to the only worth living for.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I had the privilege to spend time talking, listening, and being encouraged by many of the HYPE members. They shared their testimonies and encouraged me with the life they were now leading which in most cases was dramatically different from the life they had before Christ. I began taking steps of boldness in sharing my own testimony. I talked about Jesus to friends who i had been praying for yet had not gathered the courage to confront. A few of them accepted Christ at the night concert and I praise God.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I learned how to almost dance and i made a few new friends who i have been able to share Christ's love and encourage. After advertising to almost the whole school personally I have become more bold. More peers now recognize and respect my passion for loving God and loving them.

When I heard HYPE was coming to Okinawa I remember thinking "Cool they're going to do really awesome things here" But I WAY understated it. They BLEW my mind! The outreach and message was incredible and I can still see it working. I got to know a few of them personally and shared our testimony and I know for a fact I will never forget them! All in all they changed people here on this island and we will never forget it.
