Chris' Story...

Chris-Basketball

I gave my life to Jesus.

I am 17 years old and I attend Nimitz High School. I have been attending Voice of Hope for twelve years. I enjoy coming to Voice of Hope because I have fun and it's a good place to meet people other than the streets. Last year I wrote in the cement and I broke a window at Voice of Hope wrestling with one of my friends. Mr. Franklin sat down with me and told me that he wanted me to go to this "away camp" for a week during the summer. I thought it was punishment, but that week that I went, I got saved!

I gave my life to Jesus. I've been reading and studying the Bible for a year now. I go to Bible study each week and I've been participating in Friday Night Gym Lights with Coach Jerami. Coach Jerami really trusts me now, too. He invites me places and he knows that I won't get into any trouble. He couldn't do that before.

I am now passing all my classes. I will graduate next year. I want to play basketball and study engineering in college. Voice of Hope helped me to get closer to Jesus. They keep me out of trouble and motivate me to do the right thing.
