Jerry is like a new father with this young Spanish man. Jorge was born in New
Orleans and was raised in a crack house with his mother. Jorge was raised in
a rough setting that has shaped who he is today. The pastor of Twin Cities Bible
Church contacted Jerry and asked him if he would mentor Jorge. Jorge has
recently gotten out of jail for dealing in dope. He has been living with his girlfriend
now for six years and now they have four children. Jorge doesn’t want to go
back to prison, because that would separate him from his children. His girlfriend
is in a half-way-house herself. With the help of the church and Jerry he has hope
that things can be better. Jorge is working two jobs and has not asked for money.
He will be getting married on August 16th. Jerry and I plan to pay for his tux and
attend the wedding. Today we had a good visit, went back to the church to see
what he has been doing as a maintenance man. We prayed for Jorge and his
new life in God. He is very grateful.
