What has Hope for the Island meant to me….
Cris (staff) and Rissa
My life has been full of bad things and nonsense in life. I always found trouble with my friends. I never listened to my parents or to any other people who speak to me. Although friends are telling me I need to change, I never listened to them. I always attend Hope for the Island but my heart is hard.
One day I was so sick. I thought I’m going to die already at that time. Because the pain is so bad and no money I consider doing suicide so I don’t have to suffer, but instead what came out of my mouth was confession to God and asking His forgiveness.
On Sept. 11 2015 I followed what I learned at Hope and asked God to forgive me and I accepted His salvation. Now when it comes to swearing my mouth is slowing down. I am trying to be a blessing with my mouth also by not gossiping. I have now friends and Hope staff who cares for me and always guides me to Gods Word. Thank God because He is really doing something in my life and I need your prayers.
