When we designed the program, the goal was to help older guys become solid role models who would help mentor younger guys. All of a sudden that's exactly what's happening, but we didn't plan it this way.
Al Robinson is a Pastor from Spirit of Truth Ministries in Buffalo. He brings his guys 12-18 yrs. old to visit BWAP twice a month. Pastor Al noticed how the older guys have taken the younger guys under their wing and embraced them.
Powerful mentoring is creating a Mentor Force at BWAP by God's design, not our own. For a program designed fro 18-30 yr. old young men, BWAP has an interesting age range. Mom's from the neighborhood have started to bring their sons who are around 12 yrs. old. Some of the older players have babies accompanied by their Mom's. So whose at BWAP? Dads, Moms, Grandparents, babies, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers and friends have become an integral part of BWAP, and we thank God!
Pastor Al gave a great Nine Minute Devotion about how "bad company corrupts good character"(1 Corinthians 15:33.) That's good wisdom for people of any age. Thanks Pastor Al, we appreciate you. Jesus loves you and so do we.
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody.
