One of the greatest blessings the youth in South Africa are thankful for is how the UPRising SA has brought the youth in their community to a higher level of unity, and that it has shown them the power of coming together in unity to pray, encourage the Body, and share the Word of God.
Also, because of the different issues the youth in South Africa are faced with, UPRising SA has raised an awareness in the community that there is hope found in Jesus Christ. During the conference, they witnessed drug addicts receive salvation and ex-gang members repent and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. It was a sight to behold! For even just for one person coming to know the love of Jesus, all the sacrifices and hard work put into the preparations were all worth it!
