Desirae King Mentors
At-Risk Youth

Desirae King, a member of the Abundant Life church in Las Vegas, Nev., is dedicated to helping at-risk youth. Every month, King speaks to the young people who attend the “Real Talk Youth Impact Program.” She encourages the youth to believe in themselves and make good choices. “It’s so important for me to help them because I know what it’s like to not have parents, I know what it’s like to consistently operate in survival mode, and I know what it’s like to stand before a judge,” King said. “I first relate to the kids, then I enlighten them on the fact that there is a better way. They do have the power to make better choices and not to be limited by their environment.”

Students Make Decision for Christ at Armona Union Academy

According to Randy Bovee, principal at Armona Union Academy, amazing things happen for God’s glory when families, churches, and schools work together. Last year, Mrs. Tabura (seventh and eighth-grade teacher) and Ms. Thompson (fifth and sixth-grade teacher) made time in their schedules to bring in local pastors to conduct Bible studies with their students. Armona SDA Church Pastor Justin Torossian organized the Bible studies that took place in early 2018. In late 2018, 14 of their students made decisions for Christ and were baptized.
