BBC airs program about a young girl who loves to evangelize

The BBC recently aired a documentary called Deborah 13: Servant of God. It's about Deborah Drapper a homeschooled 13 year old Christian girl who is unlike most teenagers. She loves to share her faith. She has a clear understanding that time is short here on earth and that eternity is forever. She even uses some of my favorite tracts while she's out on the streets. :-)

Deborah emailed me a while back about this upcoming broadcast and for the past couple of days we've been talking back and forth via email. She is a precious young lady. Today she emailed and shared how she has been flooded with so many emails that she doesn't know what to with all of them. One email was from a gentleman who wrote to her dad after watching the program. Here's what he writes:

"Recently, I have become more and more aware of my "Sins" and my need to be saved, this awareness has been made all the stronger by my health problems. Also, I feel as though something is missing in my life, something that cannot be filled by anything worldly. Most of all, I am starting to realize how much control I have been holding onto in my life, I have completely failed to recognize God's rights over my life. Maybe this heart problem is just a wakeup call. I am ready now, to give my life to God, to do whatever God directs me to do, and go wherever he wants me to go."

Please pray for Deborah, her dad (Andrew) and her entire family as this broadcast has opened up wonderful doors for them to proclaim the gospel.

I watched the entire 6 part series this morning and thought you would be encouraged by it as well. If you're in the U.K you can view it HERE (For 6 days only). And if you're in the U.S. you can view it here (in 6 parts):
Here is part 1 of 6:


Part 1 of 6. Part 2 of 6.

Thank you much for sharing this! I was so blessed by Deborah - and only 13 yrs old! We have to keep her in our prayers! The devil will be after this one!

It anyone has any excuses - she just blew them away!

This should be mandatory watching for anyone thinking about sharing their faith.

I would like to correspond with her myself. I would gladly encourage her in any manner possible - although it would probably be her encouraging me! :-)

Thanks Trish!

Beth, for the time being she is easy to get a hold of. Here's what to do, visit her website www.deborahdrapper.com and go to the right hand corner and at the top you will see "Contact". God bless you, sis! Glad you were encouraged by this.

That last one minute tells it all. I pray that her love for her lovely savior will grow and grow until the day she sees Him face to face.

Thank you for that, Trish.

Oh, I just read your last comment about getting in contact with Deborah. :) Sorry about not reading that before I commented.

Olivia, I think I accidentally erased one of your comments. You said something to the effect of, "I'm glad I found this...I'm a 13 year old..."

Feel free to repost it. So sorry about that. God bless you, sis!

Do you think the Drapper family would adopt me if I asked? I really need to grow up. I really kinda want to...hang out with them. For like, a year or two.
