I was tired of getting high. I wanted to stop but didn’t know how. I decided to go to the Mental Health Complex because I knew it was a safe place where I could get help. There, a priest told me that Jesus was the only one that could help me. He told me about Teen Challenge.
During this last year the Lord has helped me immensely. I am rebuilding my life in Christ. I graduated last month and will be entering Brooklyn Teen Challenge School of Ministry in October. Thank you for supporting Teen Challenge Wisconsin! Your support helps those struggling with addiction find freedom.
