Unlocking Potential, Begin Anew of Middle Tennessee

Greater Kentucky Lake CWJC/CMJC works with girls in jail or Hope Center Ministries, a Christ-Centered recovery program for alcoholics and addicts. After a year of not being allowed into the jail due to COVID, Sandy Louden, site coordinator, asked God to show them how to minister to the ladies. In March, the Lord brought 30 ladies from the Hope Center to their church on a Wednesday night. Sandy said, "Lord, you brought them to us."  What an awesome God we serve! Pictured above are two of them being baptized.
