Back in the Summer of 2015 during an MSP Street Outreach in South City, Walter accepted Christ and was invited to an upcoming MSP conference. Later that month he came to the conference, one of the speakers prayed over and prophesied to him that his home church was where he was standing and his pastor was at the back of the room. Ever since that time, Walter has faithfully attended and grown in his relationship with God. At the end of 2017, an MSP case manager began to counsel and assist him with resources as Walter expressed genuine interest to take the next steps of growth for his life. He applied, interviewed and was accepted into the Job and Leadership Training program at Mission St. Louis. Today- Walter is currently attending the JLT program and also working towards his GED.
On Saturday June 7th 2017, MSP staff and volunteers gathered inside Jubilee Community Church to pray and prepare for afternoon street outreach in North City. A young man named Terrance had just moved back to St. Louis and was walking down the street stopping at local businesses to see who was hiring. Something told him to come inside the church as he was walking by. When he came in, everyone thought he was simply showing up to volunteer. Terrance came directly down the aisle up to the front and re-dedicated his life to God. He then spent the afternoon on street outreach with Men Standing Positive. Terrance was immediately connected with an MSP case manager who directed him to Jubilee Church so he could start being discipled and receive any needed food, clothing and hygiene items. Shortly after that Saturday, he was placed in a job working for Jubilee Services; a professional service company offering lawn care, landscaping and construction for both residential and commercial property across the St. Louis region. After approximately 5 months, he transitioned to another landscaping company after receiving the necessary the training.
