Notes of Hope

In September 2016, Eden Dunning and Jordan Wessel, two University of Akron Music Majors, launched Notes of Hope ‑ an outreach targeting the children of those who attend our addiction recovery program. This creative weekly program engages urban youth through dynamic musical activities, which include rhythm games and bucket drumming.
Our students also enjoy a home-cooked meal and Bible devotions as we point the kids to the Savior. More than 15 students attend each week and are always excited to invite their friends!

The Gift of His Word

Reading is a gift that many take for granted. Unfortunately, many of the individuals we work with were never given this gift. God is using one volunteer, Ellen Naylor, to make a difference by teaching literacy at True Freedom. One young lady attending our addiction recovery group has always had difficulty reading. Now, after weeks of Ellen’s tutoring, she is brimming with excitement about finally being able to read the Word of God! This same client recently lost custody of her children, so reading will be an immense help as she begins dealing with legal matters. Most importantly, however, she can now apply the salve of God’s Truth to her broken heart.

At a recent meeting, she asked Rae Borders if she could read a passage from 2 Samuel 22 to the entire group: “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer…In my distress I called to the Lord; I called out to my God.  From His temple He heard my voice; my cry came to His ears…You, Lord, are my lamp; the Lord turns my darkness into light.”

The Lord is doing amazing things in our midst!  Would you prayerfully consider supporting True Freedom?

Planting Seeds at the Juvenile Justice Center

TFM board member, Dr. Reuben Gobezie

TFM board member, Dr. Reuben Gobezie, joined Pastor Mark at the Juvenile Justice Center on February 5th. Dr. Gobezie shared his testimony and Pastor Mark presented the gospel at six services in the various housing units.

Many incarcerated young men and women listened with great interest. Please pray that the seeds of Truth planted will bring forth fruit that remains.
