Jerome's Testimony

Hello, My Name is Jerome Turner. Since being here at The Way Homes, and
with the help of God, I am learning how to live and love.

I came to The Way Homes, from prison, broken and lost.  I had a “don’t
care” attitude and was content to live a cantankerous and capricious life
style. This all has changed since coming to TWH’s where I have learned to
be interdependent. God made us relational people and I needed to learn how
to lean on some people to help me. Due to this change my perception of
concern has shrunken and my circle of Influence is growing. I am no longer
a reactive person. I am now a proactive person. Thanks Be to God, and The
Way Homes.

Let me share a personal experience with you. Just recently I had an
opportunity to pray with a guy who came to one of our thrift stores, He
felt down and was struggling. We prayed together, cried together and
trusted in the Lord for a positive outcome.  He contacted me a few days
later and shared how grateful he was that we were there.
He shared how God had moved in his life and now loves the Lord. He said it
is because we are a Christ loving ministry where we are able to help and
serve the community. To continue to serve those around us and those we
interact with, we need more supporters so that we can help more, serve more
and pray with more people who we come in contact with every day.

Without this ministry I would not have met my little friend who is in
kindergarten who loves to come to our Free Friday Family Flea Market. This
is a child who comes to see me and pray with me and he just brings a smile
and joy to my heart. This is what your support does. It has a ripple
effect. Thank you and please continue to support us in Christ's work.

All things are possible with God.

-J.T.
