As I write my first post I am in Toronto, Canada to help dedicate the new women’s center for Teen Challenge – a residential facility for recovery from substance abuse. Teen Challenge, started by David Wilkerson in NYC, has a long history of success with men – after 5 years there is a 70% success rate. Huge!
I am thrilled they now have a place for women and am honored that they have asked me to participate in this special occasion.
This morning I was on 100 Huntley Place television show – the Canadian 700 Club. Moira Brown interviewed me and I had a good opportunity to talk about my new book, Fear Not Tomorrow, God Is Already There, the ministry of Ruth Graham & Friends and our time at Angola Prison in Louisiana. Click on the Angola Photographs link under the “Important Links” section of my blog if you would like to view a few of some wonderful photographs and video done by Jim Whitmer while we were there. It was a profound experience.
This is a busy trip but I love the Canadians and the ministry of Teen Challenge. 9/26/09
