BEYOND THE WALLS
When I first found out about Pass The Rock it spoke to a side of me that not many people knew about. I've always wanted to be a part of something like this, something that went beyond the "church" walls and into the places that feel lost and dispare, like "like there is no God". With PTR I've been given the opportunity to go beyond my comfort zone and be a part of a mentor ship program where I feel my input is valued. The experience itself is very humbling in the sense that I go into the center with bare hands, just a prayer in my heart that I may be part of bringing these children of God back to Him, that they may end the night in their cells by making the decision to accept Jesus as their Savior. In the midst of all this, I was blessed with a community of people who are just as broken as I am, people who are NO WHERE NEAR perfect; who are just saying YES to a calling and being obedient. Pass The Rock has pushed and encourage me to be the leader I am today—the people in it are not only friends, but family, that at times (most of the time) see more in me, believe more in me, than I in myself. Not only are we blessed to love and mentor the youth, but one another. Its provided me with a platform where I can use my brokenness to bring Him more glory. It's been nothing short of a privilege to be able to stand where I am, where I've been, and witness God's hands in it all. And then there's @bravelyrise , but we'll save that for another day . .

"It doesn't matter how far you might rise. At some point, you are bound to stumble.... If you're constantly pushing yourself higher...the law of averages, not to mention the Myth of Icarus, predicts that you will at some point fall. And when you do, I want you to know this, remember this: There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction."
