Joy’s Story: The Lord’s Hand is in Everything

Joy came to her end when she learned she could not escape addiction and destructive behavior on her own. Every time she tried to quit she fell deeper. Through Jobs for Life, Joy met Margie, a caring friend who committed to walk alongside her. Through the story of Joseph discussed in class, Joy learned not to compromise and that the Lord’s hand is in all.

Daniel’s Story: Learning the Language of Work

Daniel began seeking employment after losing his job of 17 years. Originally, he did not believe he could learn anything new from the Martha O’Brian Center Jobs for Life class. However, after attending a job interview ill-prepared, Daniel decided to try the JfL class. Since completing the training course Daniel has grown in his presentation skills, confidence, and relationship with God. This is a great testimony video to show participants in the class.
