The Bible stories in Exodus and Numbers tell the story of the Hebrew people wandering through the desert. They spent forty years walking a hard road. It wasn’t supposed to be their home - hard places never are - but along the way they were constantly exposed to God’s presence. That presence changed them. So, when it was time to cross into the Promised Land, they were different people - ready to take the next step of faith because they knew God was with them.
The Dale House is one of those hard roads. Deep down, no one wants to be there. Youth are dreaming of what life will be like when they’re finally free of the broken systems that brought them there. You may wonder if you’ll be able to make it, often longing for the easier roads you could have taken but didn’t. But walking this road changes us - and frees us to make a lifetime of difference faithfully following God into new places.
