Joy Ministries is constantly giving hope and reaching out to teens in at-risk communities. Just recently, Joy Ministries took a group of teenagers to the Acquire the Fire event in Richmond, Virginia. God did an incredible work in the lives of the teens that attended, and many of them came into a new level of maturity in their relationship with the Lord as they listened to the powerful messages from Ron Luce. They continue their journey of maturity through personal mentoring times with Joy Ministries’ staff members.
Every week we are hearing testimonies of teenagers that are receiving hope through the mentoring relationships that they have developed through Joy Ministries’ outreaches! Your support is helping us to not only reach out to these young people, but to help them see that they have a “future and a hope.”
At the age of 18, C.S. dropped out of the ninth grade. Even though she was eighteen years old, C.S. had never been to church, and knew nothing aboutwho Jesus is. Desperate and without hope, C.S. took a job at a fast food restaurant in order to help her mom out, and to “get by.” Just two weeks after dropping out of school, C.S. was invited by a friend to come to a Joy Ministries’ mentoring activity. C.S.’s eyes filled with tears that night as our staff member gave her a word of the Lord about continuing her education and about the plans God has plans for her. C.S.’ heart was filled with hope as she realized that God had a plan for her life. The very next week, C.S. enrolled to get her G.E.D. and is now planning to go to to college to work in cosmetology.
