Marcus rediscovered his faith in juvy. He has left his gang-affiliated ways and mindset and has committed his life to the ways of Jesus. While he still faces many temptations to go back to his old ways, he is persevering in his faith and we are blessed to be a part of his life.
Denise started a mentoring relationship with one of our female chaplains. She also started a relationship with Jesus in juvy, and has grown in her faith outside of detention. She has a steady job and is excited about her future. She has stated, “You all help turn my life around.”
James met Chaplain Jon in the detention center at the age of 13, and continued to be in touch with Jon when he was sent to other facilities. God renewed his faith before being released and he is continuing to mature and grow. As we walk with James (now almost 18) in his life journey, we are confident that God will continue to grow him into the man God is calling him to be.
