Letter: Power Cross program transforms lives

I want to comment on the article about the two boys and coach at Power Cross Ministries.

I am a parent whose child attended Power Cross. It has been the best ministry that I have ever seen and helps young boys turn into Christian young men. Everyone wants to comment bad about the coach and make smart comments, but in reality we don’t know the whole story or exactly what was said or done.

Unless people personally witnessed it, they should keep their opinions to themselves because they were not there and don’t know what happened exactly.

The Power Cross coaches work very hard to make sure kids get the best coaching, teaching and godly instruction as well as how to grow into strong, godly men. I saw my son grow and change so much through this program. He received a full scholarship to college and graduated top of his class because there was a ministry that cared and helped him along the way.

I feel that there are always two sides to a story. Unless people witnessed it themselves, they have no right to point fingers and shame someone.

Thank you, Power Cross, for helping my child and all the boys who have gone through the program. Their lives were transformed. They have become strong young men.
