Today we went out to George Junior Republic for the first time this semester. GJR is high school for troubled youth. We met the guys. The guys are really talkative and open. We opened up with a game of spoons. Then we did our Bible study. The group seems to be open to “spiritual” things. We talked about God’s word- . We also talked about Jesus being the way, the truth, and the life. Our cottage parent wants to sit in on our studies. I wonder if he is a Christian.
Broken people are the most receptive. Some of these guys know how bad they are. They commented on and how they were doomed. But Christ can be their hope. God’s word is active and living. Please pray for the cottage ministry as we continue to minister to them. Pray that God will change their hearts.
Some of their prayer requests:
– My upcoming court case.
– My two year old daughter.
12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account. (ESV)
