Water has deep symbolism in the Bible. It symbolizes the agent that contributes to "Gospel Transformation and Restoration."
With that in mind, that's where some of the Next Chapter men found themselves this past weekend, on the water. The weekend was filled with smiles, food, boating, four wheeling and even catching a fish or two, all the while on or in proximity to the water. One dad said "Thanks for bringing us here. This has allowed me to smile again." The work we do at Next Chapter is hard work. Every week we are working with our residents and participants in a collaborative manner. All in hopes of Rebuilding the brokenness that has occurred because of this vicious cycle of crime. With this hard work smiles go along way.
Please continue to pray and support us until we eradicate crime in Rochester and the world around us.
