MY BROTHER’S KEEPER
I chose Freedom Works because of one reason: The Mentors- Christian men willing to offer their personal time to help men like me walk out the Bible in everyday situations; I needed that. I needed a person who knows God and who puts that knowledge into everyday life, not just on Sunday or in front of others.
Within three weeks of my release I chose one of these mentors. He has introduced me to God on a daily walk, shares his time, listens to me and prays with me. It is not easy reentering society after spending 235 months, (19 ½ years), in prison. My mentor took the time to look over the walls of my defenses, to help me break them down and learn how to trust.
