In July 2019 Joel, along with Katy & Emma, accepted the call to move to Vero Beach, Florida and join the team at Treasure Coast Boy’s Academy. It is a 15-month boarding home program run by the Teen Challenge organization and hosts 24 boys from the ages of 12-17 which have been placed there due to broken homes and disciplinary circumstances. Joel will be a teacher on campus. Besides guiding the boys in their studies, his bigger purpose will be to mentor and help them develop healthy, godly habits and restore their relationships with their families and society. Teen Challenge is renowned for their organized methods and incredible success rate of helping youth break addictions and heal broken relationships and heartache. With the help and the love of Jesus we are excited about being a part of the restoring work He’s doing in these kids lives.
Thank you SO MUCH for your prayers as we need wisdom for mentorship, and for your financial support that allow us to continue the amazing work with the boys at Treasure Coast Academy.
