This afternoon we went to several of the locations we will be serving at during the week to pray for the ministries. One of our favorite stops was at Restoration Ministry where we met Ryan, who shared with us his testimony of how he was addicted to drugs and how God is helping him through this time in his life. He thanked us for praying for him.
