TYLER IN TREATMENT AGAIN
Now I know why the young man I’ve been mentoring has not been in contact with me. He started using again and asked his sister to drive him to a treatment facility in Minneapolis to deal with his renewed drug use and his depression. He’ll be there for the foreseeable future and may be heading to jail again when he gets out. He stole some things to buy drugs, including some expensive stuff from his sister. I asked if she had given up on him. “No, but it’s been a hard last nine years with Tyler.”
I told her that Tyler’s only hope is in Jesus Christ, and she agreed with me. I also said he needs to be accountable to a Christian mentor, which would be me. She agreed. Pray with me that Tyler would grab onto the hem of Jesus’ garment and hold on for dear life. Pray that he will not do anything to harm himself. Pray that he will finally give up and let Christ take over his life.
