Wayne was unexpectedly released from prison, where he was serving a life sentence, at the age of 68 years old.
When he returned to the community after 23 years of incarceration, he reached out to Testimony Ministries because he had nowhere to go and no support network, but he had great faith in God’s will for his life.
Testimony Ministries was able to connect him with Reentry housing and a local church where he successfully completed a Testimony Internship. Through his internship, they served Wayne with over $2,000 in stipends, life skills training, building a Christ-centered community, and ongoing peer mentorship. Wayne has been home for less than a year, but with these supports, he is actively serving with his church and has his very own apartment.
We praise God for Wayne’s Testimony of faith and perseverance. Through the many difficulties he has faced due to his incarceration and is still experiencing in his Reentry, he is a blessing to his community by demonstrating the redemptive power of the gospel!
Testimony Ministries provides internships for believers in Reentry, like Wayne, so they can have a fair opportunity to pursue God’s call and experience abundant life after incarceration.
