Author Details :
John and Sheryl have always wanted to make an impact on the lives of inner city kids. They started working with “at-risk kids” while they were dating. For one year, they “adopted” a teen in Seattle’s juvenile detention facility. “We loved our time in Honduras. We thought we would spend the rest of our life working with this wonderful, gracious and friendly people.” They spent three years in Central America learning the language and culture before God moved in their hearts and they transferred to East Los Angeles. The mission had been given an old church building in the inner city. Their task was to develop a ministry, apart from Church, that would reach people in the Community of Boyle Heights. Working with inner city kids for 30 plus years has given them a unique understanding of what these kids are facing at home, in school and on the streets. For many years John and Sheryl have chosen to use their experience and knowledge to minister to inner city kids and their families. Now, they are choosing to share the wisdom they have accumulated over the years with adults, who, like them, have a heart for working with kids. John and Sheryl are currently empowering twenty-one inner city churches in the Los Angeles area as well as Churches in Northern California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Bismarck, North Dakota. In 2011 they traveled to Guyana, South America to teach these principles to Missionary Staff and Church leadership and this year (2013) we will be traveling to China. They are working with these Churches to design and develop specific after school programs to reach the “at risk kids” in their communities. Life Is Full Of Choices had evolved into a tool for all ages to use in order to utilize power, responsibility and freedom.
