  1. Wow all these youngmen have sadness in their eyes. To think that a 30yr old could've been a mentor and just led them in a different direction. We are failing our children all of us!!! Community, Churches, Mentor's Parents we all play a role. God I'm humbled I pray for these youngmen that you touch their heart right now so they ca do something different. Lord protect them, revolve all your Angels around them. Allow them to have a lesson learned so that they too can be World Changer's. Lord as you keep them still reveal their purpose here on earth so they can be the mighty men of God you have destined them to be. In your mighty name I pray Amen!!!
