"As a mentor I have had my ups and downs. My first lady I was given the opportunity to Mentor was doing amazing in jail. Once she was released, we started to have visits and again doing wonderful and being a wonderful mother. Then one day she did not answer the phone, and a month went by and I had not heard from her.
Then I got notice from a lady who did a bible study that she was back in jail and asking for me to come visit. That is why I could not get ahold of her. This broke my heart, and I felt like I failed as a Mentor. But I spoke with the LCJM team one evening at the jail about this situation. They encouraged me and explained to me how this sometimes happens. It is not our failure and to also aremember that God is not done with her yet. Keep pressing, keep leading. So, I did. On a spiritual recharge from our amazing team. She is now in a rehab and out of jail. She will be there for some time longer before I can see her again, but I know she is okay as if she weren’t, they would send her back. God is working even when we do not see it."
