Beating the Odds!

Posted on by Michael James

She did it! Winnie walked across the stage to receive her diploma, beating the odds! Having two children by the age of 16 years made finishing school a challenge. Without a family to support her, Winnie struggled but kept going, finally reaching her goal. We celebrate with her and the other moms that have persevered and overcome.

Though I am excited about her graduation, I am more encouraged by her growing relationship with Jesus. Through her involvement with Parent Life, Winne became connected with the church. She has started getting her kids up every Sunday morning, and her Parent Life leader, Tracy, picks all of them up and they attend church together.

The moms in Parent Life are part of the vast number of kids in Palm Beach County who need to hear the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. I now have the opportunity to provide leadership to not only the Parent Life ministry, but to YFC’s Campus Life, Juvenile Justice and Catalyst ministries as well. Please pray for me as I step into this Ministry Director role, as YFC continues the mission of reaching lost kids where they are at.

In Him,
Kim Barrantes
