Forgiveness Ministries was set up after the murder of our son Christopher back in 2001.
Since then we have been visiting schools and prisons to talk about forgiveness and what it is like to be a victim of crime. We also talk to youths about the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse and also being part of a gang.
It is time for change, our children are killing each other and it is time they were educated in the outcome of their actions. Our belief is the only way to do this is to educate and share with them what it is like to be a victim of crime and teach them the power of forgiveness and to move on. In our time working with these children we have seen many children in youth offender’s institutions like Feltham who have committed crime because of unforgiveness towards a parent.
We are working to make a difference and have already witnessed so many lives change because of the work we are doing. At Forgiveness Ministries we hope to continue to see change and help make our country a safer place to live.
