Almost 90 high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors from across the state packed into the Tracy Center in Baton Rouge at LCJ 2009. The weekend was both fun and inspirational. The students were challenged to return home to "Go, Be Joshua to the World" by spreading the message of life.

"The first night was by far the most powerful. I learned so much I did not know before. The video was really powerful as well."
"I learned a lot but the most important things I learned was exactly what I had hoped for, to know how to debate and stand up for my moral and pro-life beliefs."
"My favorite training session was the persuasive speaking
techniques because it absolutely fired me up!"
"My favorite part of LCJ was the small groups! I really bonded with the others in my group, as well as my group leaders."
"I loved all the speakers, but if I had to choose I would pick the Zumo's. They presented chastity in a different way by not forcing the subject but actually teaching us how chastity is a lifestyle."
"Cindy Collins was my favorite session because she had two sides to show, and she taught us about the affects abortion can take on a woman."
"The Governor's Mansion was an amazing experience. It was beautiful, and it was nice to know our legislature has pro-life leaders like Representative Henry and Senator Broome."
"My favorite part was the people, especially the CoffeeHouse, because it is outstanding to be with a group of pro-lifers this enthusiastic."
"My favorite speaker was Rachel Adair (Northlake Pregnancy Center). Her message hit home with me. She really motivated me to get involved in the work of the centers!"
"I plan on starting a pro-life group at our church for our community"
"I hope to go back home and share the word!"
"This weekend inspired me to start a pro-life club at my school."
