We have found the local church to be key in the spiritual health and growth of the boys we serve. People who follow Jesus work in the aftercare home to mentor, educate and counsel each boy through the trauma they have experienced. The local church welcomes the boys into the youth group and service opportunities. In all of this, the boys observe healthy relationships and learn how to interact with their peers.
The church from afar can partner with this critical work through prayer. Prayers sustain the staff through the difficult daily work and guide the boys through their extreme trauma. Ultimately, praying for this work brings change in the lives of boys, awareness to the issue and clarity to your role.
