Need for Mentors:

There are 20+ children and teens on the waiting list to be mentored. If you have a heart to see a young Life Transformed and interested in this ministry, please talk to Pastor Joseph. He will send you to some special training and assign you to a young refugee who is eager for direction. Please pray about this opportunity to see if the Lord is calling you to this very special ministry.
