Last year I was blown away by the amount of support that came for Teen Challenge. I believe we can do it again !!
This year we are walking in rememberance of Ryan, Darron and John who all went to be with The Lord within the last few years. Had addiction not been a life controling issue for them, I believe they would still be here with their families now.
We've been left with many unanswered questions. Although they lost their earthy battle we do know this: all 3 are in Heaven with Jesus in Perfect Peace, struggling no more. Death does not get the final say for them. It was their encounter with Jesus in MN Teen Challenge that their eternal destiny was solidified. We will be seeing them again.
The drug problem is easily identified in our communities, families, even personal lives. There is hope, and there is freedom. Its time for us to do something. Teen Challenge is where that freedom is found, lives are saved, and souls are won for Jesus.
I've been blessed to work for this ministry for this last year, and it had been one of the most fulfilling years of my life. Working on the front lines of this battle, I get to watch people change right before my eyes every day. I believe with my whole heart that anyone can be radically changed and forever freed from any addiction. I am witness to this in my own life, and the lives of those who surround me. We need your help! Please consider donating and come out to hear testimonies of changes lives!!
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
P.S. Make sure to join the team AND register for the walk!!
