I have no idea where this phrase originated. “Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day, but teach a man to fish, and he can eat for a lifetime.” Clearly, the phrase is full of abundant wisdom. It has been proven time and again at Adult Teen Challenge Ohio. When we allow our Lord to lead us in reaching others, we begin to see the big plan He has for each of us.
We have seen many people who want a quick fix to get better. Who doesn’t? When each individual surrenders, allowing change to take place, we see the real person. The person for whom our Lord died begins to come to the surface!
Will you come along with us? Help us teach the next person to fish, so soon they may become a teacher to someone else. You can help by praying, volunteering, fundraising, or financial giving. We are growing people, one at a time.
Two Sundays ago, we celebrated five years of victory with one of our alumni students. It is simply amazing to see how God has restored and brought healing not only to her but her family. It is so worth the time invested in a life! We will send an update soon, including some pictures of the celebration.
