Testimony

NOVEMBER GRADUATING GRO POD STUDENT WRITES: "I loved participating in the GRO Pod. It has helped me to learn a different way to go about life. GRO Pod has also taught me the principles and basics of the Bible as well as much help from GRO Pod Chaplain Leo Wynne. I've learned a great deal and it has helped me with multiple life issues that I have been dealing with for a very long time. I am now able to look past and see a future life for myself. Jalen 5B
