    These young ladies gave me more HOPE in the next generation. I always new that even though I saw and encountered a truck load of rock head tweens (twenty-somethings and teens) that made me weep for our future, God had the situation in hand. These young ladies and many of the other Repo kids and Xmin youths are the manifestation of what God can do!!! They are so on fire and such an inspiration and so for real! Awesome young women of God, awesome post! Hopeworks works!

  7. I’m so proud of these girls because in the middle of their real struggles they share hope. To their unsaved family and classmates they are hope dealers! I love them!! And let me tell you, these girls can PRAY! So watch out world 🙂

  8. I love that they want to see their families, friends, and community all find Hope! AND that they aren’t just talking about it but doing it – this kind of Hope will change Detroit!
