When God speaks our name
By Suzanne Olson, Director
“Hope” came to us at New Way fresh off the streets. As a young girl she had been drawn into a world of drugs, gangs, and violence and she ultimately ended up in the sex trafficking trade. Arrested and locked up, she was due to serve up to nine years in prison for her crimes. When we met Hope, she was pregnant and lost, trying to see light in her life but facing a dark future. With help and prayer we took her in.
Now, after a year in our program, the healthy birth of her delightful daughter, lots of hard work, love, and tears; Hope is seeing a purposeful future for herself and her daughter. We have been privileged to walk beside her as she has found a new path. She has worked through drug addiction, counseling, life skills classes, mentoring, and best of all she has found faith in the living Lord Jesus. This hope she has found as a child of the most-high God is light for her life and future. The gentle way that God has worked His amazing grace into her life is spilled down into the life of her baby who had her first birthday just one short month ago.
With God’s leading, we can help to change life patterns for these
women and break the cycle of addiction, violence, and shame for
the next generation. We praise God for His goodness and love
that calls us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
