From time to time, area youth groups will visit His Way to help with a project and/or encourage our residents. We wanted to share this letter from a 15 year old girl that visited His Way with her church group over Spring Break.
Dear His Way,
Hello! Some of you won’t know me, but my name is Ellie and I visited with a group of kids from my church a little while ago. Even though I couldn’t meet and speak with all of you, I wanted you all to know how proud I am of you all. It takes tremendous bravery to accept God and his help, and you have all taken that crucial first step. Each of you has faced struggles and challenges, but you all, with the help of God, can and will overcome them.
You are all in my prayers, and I know all of you have what it takes to succeed and to reach your goals. Remember, the Lord is good and kind, but you must reach to him to truly feel his grace and mercy. May God bless and protect you on your journey ahead.
“Still other seeds fell on good soil where it produced a crop – – a hundred, sixty, or thirty times what was sown.” Matthew 13:8
Thank you, Ellie! Your letter and visit encouraged our entire house. Please let us know if your small group or youth group would like to bring a meal or share a devotional at His Way. Building positive relationships with strong Christians is invaluable to our residents as they seek Christ-centered recovery.
