What a great event. We were invited to come to the alternative school to speak to the kids about Life Choices and the far reaching impact that their life choices have. Gary German came and spoke about the allure of fast money and gang life when you are young. At 17 years old Gary was making between 10-15 thousand dollars a week selling crack. Gary shared what his early life choices cost , including holding his 14 month old son in his arms as he died when a rival gang shot up his house during a drive bye shooting. Every kid in that gym was on the edge of their seat as Gary made it very plain.
When Gary ask how many were ready to change their lives and let Jesus Christ determine their future 200 kids stood to their feet…Many with tears in their eyes. As always our ROC youth band and Street Drama team did an outstanding job. Several of our teammates said it was one of the best events they had attended. We have been invited to come back in May.
Word of Life Church has agreed to step up and bring Pizza for the kids next time.
What a great day, Jesus was honored and lives were changed.
Peace and Grace,
Director: Ring of Champions
