Unashamedly Christian Mr PE finalist Andrew Waters shares that his dream is to use the platform to bring glory to God and shake the young people of Port Elizabeth.
In an interview with Gateway News, Waters explained how the Die Burger, Boardwalk Mr PE 2016 campaign had begun to show him a fresh revelation of God’s love as he participated in the various activities and promotions during the run up to the gala event.
The 12 finalists will host a charity golf day on Friday, June 3 at the PE Golf Club in aid of Wings and Wishes, an organisation that arranges medical flights and transportation for critically ill children; and Quest School for Autisim, which focuses on loving, educating and working with autistic children.
Water’s said he has always known that God’s plan for him involves being a difference maker and leader to the young people of Port Elizabeth.
“This was a dream that God had placed in my heart as a teenager. I knew that I was to be a role model to the youth; not to inspire them to be like me but to motivate them enough to see their own dreams and believe in themselves to achieve them.
“I want to get more involved in the community, to bring something new and refreshing that would make a difference in this city,” he said.
Waters wowed the audience at the finalists first public appearance event on May 2 when he passionately declared that he was a child of God and desired to help bridge the gap for young people to cross over from where they were to where God wanted to take them.
“Who I am and what I believe in has everything to do with being a child of God!” the 27 year old client services clerk shared with the captivated audience at the Boardwalk. (See video at bottom of page)
Waters said making the decision to share his faith has always been a no-brainer and he gladly took the opportunity to do so at the event.
“It was a big deal,” he explained.
“I thought of a lot of impressive things to say but overall I decided that if I am introducing myself to Port Elizabeth, then I need to stick with being me.”
