I was greatly influenced and inspired by the volunteers and what each brought in to share. Matthew 25:36… I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. My appreciation is due to the fact that the volunteers reached out and touched my personal need. They showed a sincere concern for my well-being. I consider Pastor Blaine a friend because he did for me what only a friend would do. I felt privileged. The truth is he’ll help anyone who needs help. The xtreme SOULutions program is a God centered program. But it does something no other faith-based program does, it goes beyond talk and puts faith in action. The volunteers are humble servants of God willing and eager to share God’s love. xtreme SOULutions has brought a means of true rehabilitation back into the DOC. xtreme SOULutions focuses on reuniting families and getting families involved in the process of change and growth that I underwent throughout the program. My father coming in at Graduation allowed him to partake and celebrate my progress. It also gave him a chance to hear the volunteers tell him about my progressive change for betterment. He didn’t have to just take my word for it. That helped build a stronger bond between my father and I. When it came time for me to get out of prison, Blaine and Mrs. Jessica and all the xtreme SOULutions team that worked behind the scene, to help make my transition back into society one of ease. I am truly thankful.
Peace and blessings,
