Dear Faithful Friends,
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.” Psalm 91:1-2
Obviously we are living in turbulent times. Let me update you on what is happening with LifeQuest and our work in juvenile facilities.
As of March 12th 2020 all volunteer activities were suspended in CYFD juvenile facilities for the protection of the clients. LifeQuest obviously was affected by this as so many of our services were provided by our faithful volunteers. However, LifeQuest is also a contractor (we do have a small contract with CYFD) and as such our staff are still being allowed access to the young men and women we serve. The ultimate result of all of this is that we now become the sole voice of the Gospel within the juvenile facilities for the near future.
We will continue to reach as many young men and women as we can with the love of God each and every day. We will continue to visit the different cottages and units regularly to love on kids and talk with them. We will hold Bible studies, mentoring sessions, and character development classes. We are currently working with CYFD staff to try and schedule mentoring times over the phone for those volunteers that have mentoring relationships.
We want to encourage each and every one of you reading this. Know that LifeQuest is praying for you and your families. We would appreciate your continued prayer and financial support as we continue to carry the Gospel to those that God puts in our path.
Let us know if we can be praying for you in any way.
John D. Jones
