What is FRONTLINE Street Intervention?
Reverend Ricky Bueno continues to serve and build relationships with the inmates as a chaplain in the Lake County Jail. Many of these individuals are gang members seeking a way out, but are in need of support and guidance. Reverend Ricky also had the privilege of performing two Good Friday/Communion services with inmates this past Friday.
Frontline also has a privilege to serve those at the Gateway Foundation in Lake Villa. Reverend Ricky along with Chuy have been able to provide bible studies, bibles and to be light bearers to those who carry heavy burden of addiction. Reverend Ricky also provided two Easter/Communion services.
Reverend Ricky had the opportunity to share his story of redemption through Jesus to the clients receiving services at the Northwestern Lake Counseling last month.
Reaching gang-members and at-risk youth may be one of the most challenging and intimidating people group to reach with the gospel. Just inviting them to a service or an event isn’t enough. Often it takes meeting them where they are at, in their context, where you can hear their life’s stories and genuine friendships can be made. Last month it was at the basketball court in the cold. They had fun but more than that some young men heard that there is a God who loves them.
The Before and After pictures above are of one of their clients and Holy Homie, Joey, after receiving laser treatment to remove gang tattoos that signify his old life. Due to the darkness of the tattoos Joey will have to receive more treatments from the Ritacca Laser Center to remove completely. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to Frontline Street Intervention to help with this process.
Joey will be sharing his story at their G-L.I.F.E. Event on May 2nd. Come out and show your support!
Please consider a monthly donation to this vital jail ministry that provides spiritual resources to inmates as well as re-entry services that help to reduce recidivism and gang activity.
