Savage, MN, November 28, 2011 – Scott Rajavuori has always had a heart for the youth at his church. After years of doing junior high ministry he has felt led to a new program that works with kids who are going through “stuff”. The Life Hurts God Heals program reaches out to kids who need a “real” environment that they can open up in and talk about life. Having gone through his share of bumps, bruises, and bad choices both as a kid and adult Scott feels he can relate.
The first few weeks of involvement have been awesome as he has had the opportunity to connect with his new friends. Scott says, “It is amazing when you put time aside and volunteer with kids how your effort to help others actually almost does more for you. It heals my hurts, seeing how God can use my past “junk” to minister to others.” GO GOD!
Scott Rajavuori was led to the prison and recovery ministry through his own experiences. Often in life we ask God “why”? When the real question is “how”? God promises to use the things the devil meant for bad for his Glory and Good. Scott sees how healing happens in his own life and others when we take the ugly stuff of life and use it to help others to show them they can get through it if they just hold on. Scott has been spending time as both a mentor at different programs as well as life coaching and different half way houses and really likes the relationship he has with Midwest Challenge. Midwest challenge is a program that really follows through on the mission statement and what they believe. You see many men fail when you are dealing with guys either coming from a life of chemical abuse or prison.
It is so awesome when you see a guy in a life changing program like Midwest Challenge start making good choices and you are there to be part of it. There is little better than seeing God glorified through a changed life and that comes from a man who’s life has forever been changed!
