silly to serious

Posted on by Martin Corder

Stephen got his diploma last June with a lot of help from school staff and others who care about this young man . . . 

A few weeks ago Stephen got his first job as a result of the efforts of Todd Sorensen, Director of Real Life Vocational Training and his team. I first met Stephen in a Point Break Workshop nearly 2 years ago. He was a very lost, confused kid struggling with school, relationships and life. Last year we developed a strong mentoring relationship. Meeting regularly, and often for breakfast, we talk about many things from silly to serious. Last weekend Stephen was baptized while attending church with his girlfriend and her family. With lots of love and care, from the staff at Central Medford High School along with the teamwork of two Rogue Valley YFC programs, Stephen is beginning to flourish.

The support of caring competent adults and the love of Jesus Christ is transforming Stephen from a lost, lonely, goofy kid into a thriving young man. Thank you for being a part of this amazing story!
