Multitude Monday - Travis and Teen Challenge

This morning we went to see the MN Teen Challenge Choir again. We have seen them numerous times and at different churches, but this morning was different. It was extra special because just 15 days again my baby brother, Travis entered the program.

He has a story, but it is his story to tell. What I will say is he has a checkered past full of addiction, arrests and depression.....just like everyone else that has been at the end of themselves and taken that leap of faith and hope and entered a 13 month long treatment program.

There are so many noticeable changes in Travis in the short amount of time he has been there. It is so evident that God's Hand has been involved and protecting him and bringing him to this place for His Purpose.

The choir group he was with was only 15 miles from our home, so it was an easy decision to go this morning. It was great to see him, but the best part was he shared his testimony during the service we attended.

I am so proud of him and can't wait to see what God all has planned in this whole thing.....not only for Travis, but for our entire family.
