Our ministry has planted its roots in the central Texas town of Gorman. We are in the process of converting a large home into a place of hope for children and teens. Though this is only the beginning, it is an answer to the call God has put on our lives.
After many years of working with children through Christian school, sunday school classes, and children's church, God took us by the hand and led us outside of the church walls. He opened our eyes to the community around us, not only the children but their families. We found there was little hope to be found in the children's lives. There were massive amounts of children and teens that lived with people who were not their parents, but with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends. The normal family did not exist. These children and teens faced lives that few of us could imagine. The only familiar things in these kids lives were extreme poverty, neglect, gang violence, drugs, domestic violence, and alcohol. We started to walk through this neighborhood and found there was no security whether in their home or on the streets, where they spent most of their days.
God opened our eyes to this "lost generation" and gave us a vision to see their lives changed through the power of love. Through the next three years we got to know quite a few of these young people and their mixed-up families. We got to experience first-hand the mighty power of God and what it can do in someones life! Families that were broken, God put back together!
God moved us to Gorman, Texas and our home on Crescent Street. It is a huge house with plenty of room. We are in the process of renovating this home to make it into a place of hope and love for hurting children and teens.
As I said earlier it is just the beginning. God has been doing some amazing things here! Starting in October we will begin meeting with Youth Pastors in the central Texas area to begin a youth ministry opportunity called, "Youthquake-Live Central Texas." Also, we are in the process of bringing "kids camp" to churches, that will provide a camp experience for children who may never have the chance to attend a Christian Camp. The call God has put on our ministry is continuing to blossom and we are thankful that God chooses to use this ministry!
