Less than five months ago Beto and Israel were living under a bridge and were severely addicted to drugs. Now clean, they are navigating the long road away from drug addiction and homelessness. After coming off the streets and getting a job with Jail –> Jobs, we saw a rapid turnaround.
However, like most addictions there have been ups and downs. They both made the decision to go into long-term rehab with one of our partner organizations – Victory Outreach. The program is a one-year commitment.
We are so proud of how much Beto and Isreal have grown in their faith, character, and outlook in just a couple of months. They have seen the Lord at work in day to day life and they have both chosen to be baptized. There have definitely been setbacks, but that’s where our staff and volunteers come in and prop them back up. Beto and Isreal have become part of our family, both at Jail –> Jobs and within our own families. We are so thrilled that they have have decided to take the next step and enter this program in order to learn more about themselves and their sobriety.
Staff and volunteers have been absolutely instrumental in getting these two off the streets, meeting their physical needs, and showing them love every step of the way. We will continue checking in on them while in treatment. Once you are a part of our family, you’re in it for life. Please join us in praying that God continues His good work in these young men and that they emerge from this program even stronger in their faith than we could imagine.
“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.“ ~ Philippians 1:6
