I've been doing lessons for at least 5 yrs of the most challenging time of a young person's life, the "teenage time"… When I'm in certain situations I've been able to say, "No, this isn't right. I know in my heart this isn't God's best and I refuse to compromise because I know God's got better." …And I was asking God, "Why is it that I feel like I know so much more than most young people my age?" I've realized now that it's the foundation of my life, the stability I have standing on God's Word. I know I didn't develop this stability on my own… you guys built something in my life that no attack or temptation will be big enough to destroy."
"Thanks for making such a wonderful website organization that helps people grow in faith and in their relationship with God. I have learned so much through these lessons.

I have had my own experiences where I have “leaned” back on your lessons in order to stay strong… The only reason I am still a Christian today would be by all the Bible verses I have read and memorized through the David and Jonathan organization… I thank you David and Jonathan for instilling these verses deep into my heart so that when I needed them most I could recall them. I praise God for your organization." (15-year-old)
"This lesson was really great. Lately, at church and youth group I have been learning about forgiveness. This lesson just brought that back up. I think this is God telling me that something is not right, that I need to forgive and forget. I find it hard but I will ask God to give me strength. This series was really amazing. I learned so much. I really think if someone unsaved came on the internet and was just browsing around and looked at any of your lessons that through the Spirit of God they would get saved. This series was incredible and I enjoyed learning all the way through." (16-year-old)
"I am 13 yrs. old and I became a Christian 3 yrs ago at camp. I love camp! I especially love my connection with God while I'm there. But I feel like as soon as I leave camp I lose that special connection and I feel very far apart from God. I realized that there had to be something to keep me learning and in touch with God while I'm not at camp. It took me 3 years, but I finally found it, it's David and Jonathan. This year as I'm going back to school I'm not leaving God behind. I finally found a way to keep Him with me and I have David & Jonathan to thank for that."
"I'd just like to thank you again for these lessons, they really help me out in life. They have helped me to say NO to peer pressure…"
"I enjoy doing lessons because it sets a path out for my confusing teen-age life."
"I have learned that dating isn't based on sex, it's getting to know each other when searching for a mate. Love is a commitment, not a feeling or sex. When the time comes for me to date, I'm not going to ruin it by having sex. I've made up my mind with the help of this course to wait until marriage."
"Thank you for this lesson. It is just what I needed to give me a push in the right direction."
"I just wanted to write and thank you from the bottom of my heart for sending me this lesson. I know you cannot see into my heart, but this lesson seemed to see into my heart and grab it!"

"Thank you so very much for your ministry. I am a homeschooling mother of 6 and my husband and I have tried umpteen different methods of discipleship with our children over the years… but never have we felt fully at ease or content that they were getting a solid foundation and being built up in the truest sense of the word "discipleship". The lessons you provide are so solid and so commendable. I am SO thankful to have been pointed to your website."

Notes specifically from PASTORS, MISSIONARIES & CHURCH WORKERS:
"We have had such positive responses to the materials. Our school is a private Christian school but maybe half or more of our students do not come from Christian families…The teachers have told me over and over again how much the kids love the lessons…and the message of the gospel is so strong in the lessons I am sure many of those kids have come to Christ and new believers have been grounded in their faith…they are such excellent lessons." (missionary in the Philippines)
"It was so refreshing to find your website. I direct a ministry working in north India and often want to find a quick Bible study online to use with our young disciples, children’s home kids, and adults who have had little formal education and are just learning English. I have been frustrated and amazed at the dearth of Christian materials geared for young readers until I discovered your website." (missionary in India)

Bless you for getting all this on-line and developing a user-friendly website for our current generation of Davids." (Canada)
One Sunday School teacher introduced your lessons in our Sunday School… Our children learned so many divine things in their lives. Then we used the same lessons in Junior Schools, they also got benefited and many are saved, then we used them in prisons, they are saved and got real life in Jesus and transformed into the divine ways. Now all of them are requesting us to give more lessons to grow spiritually… (Indian missionary in Botswana)

The lessons have been a blessing to me. Even though I share them with many children, I am a 21 year old adult. I work with the children in my classroom with the lessons… I have about 75 children that I give the lessons to in different parts… The most important and marvelous is that these children get so excited saying the verses and waiting for the lessons each week. Now almost all of them have accepted the Lord Jesus as their Savior… Pray for my area. It is called the “little hell” but we call it the “little heaven.” May God continue to bless you, brothers… Since I found you I have rested. (young adult in Venezuela)
"I am encouraged by your children lessons… I have 30 kids that I have been sharing your lesson ideas with and children are making professions of faith… Parents saw improvement after we did the "obey your parents and seek forgiveness from parents and God"… I am pleased to say we have had another child come to Christ this week. I try to lead the children as David did and I am proud to say the lessons I am using from your site has been a big help as Jonathan was to David. You have been the Jonathan to allow me to work as a David. This program works… I go to the UBDAVID site almost daily for myself as well as for my childrens' ministry." (children's pastor, USA)
"I’m Korean and 31 years old female. I’m intern pastor in my church. We have an English Worship Service which has about 30-40 members. I’m really glad to join this on and off-line Bible Study and will introduce this program to our church members. Thank you." (pastor in Korea)
