"Where I come from, we are not suppose to go to college and get great jobs. Since I met my mentor, I know that I will get a great job "
They cannot see the connection between the time they spent with a child and the results. It does not add up. However, what we often miss is the fact that this is divine math. Our one, plus His One equals a lot.
The good news is that God cares much more than we ever could. These at risk children are His kids. When we get prayed up and show up, He shows up with us. God the Father loves these at risk kids through us. We do not see this transaction, nor do we need to. As it is in any ministry, we are called to faithfulness, not success. God takes care of the success.

I don't have to be that way. I can become a Christian and love God and God will show me the way. My mentor has given me good advise and helped me find the way.
