Teen age Suicide

Trent Cornwell, the Youth Pastor and Mission’s Mobilizer of Vision Baptist Church, has become very concerned and with good reason about all of the young people and their many problems.  Suicide was recently discussed in the Youth Meeting.  Here is an article that he sent me that I think would be good for you to read and think about just to help you pray and see what you can do to help so many young people that are hurting.  We are here as a church to make a difference in the lives of young people and everyone else too.
