Caring for the Veras

Ally is 16 years old and is the oldest child of Ronnie and Jen Vera. It has been a very difficult year for Ally. She has been dealing with severe depression, leading to self- harming behaviors and attempted suicides. This resulted in multiple inpatient visits to various mental health facilities.  She has been receiving intense weekly counseling but still struggles daily. With much prayer and guidance, they have asked the Lord for answers of hope and clarity for their daughter, and He answered.

Ally was accepted to Teen Challenge- an all girls school down south - and will be attending there for 15 months. It is with a heavy heart that they make the hardest decision a parent could make for any of their children: sending them off and letting them go. They don't know exactly how they will be able to do this but they strongly believe that God says, "TRUST ME, TAKE MY HAND AND I WILL PROVIDE." They want Ally to know that there is hope in and a future for her life, and they hope that she can finally experience freedom and healing from this dark pit that she has been in for far too long. We are asking that you pray for the Vera's, for Ally, and for all who are dealing with the battle of depression. Thank you for your prayers, love, and support.
