Pulling Strings

Last week Angel, our Worcester Aftercare Coordinator, received a call from a kid he used to meet with in a Department of Youth Services facility in the city. It had been three months since the young man’s release and Angel wondered if he would ever see him again. Out of the blue, the young man called, wanting to be connected to Straight Ahead. The problem? He was now living out-of-state.

Angel put a call in to a chaplain in that state to see if he could connect with the boy. As it turns out the chaplain leads a weekly community-based Bible study in the town in which the boy lives. And, as chance would have it (read: the sovereignty of God) the Bible study takes place in a building on the very street in which the boy is staying.

How amazing is that? The boy calls out of the blue from a state that Straight Ahead does not formally provide aftercare. Yet there is a chaplain from the juvenile lock-up facility who is willing to meet with the kid. His Bible study happens to take place in the same town the boy now lives and most astonishingly, on the same street!

Only God could work out the details like this. Our hope is that you will be encouraged by this latest evidence of God’s work behind the scenes. We are!
