    “When I founded Teen Challenge 40 years ago, I had no idea God would multiply this movement worldwide! From the beginning, my vision has been introducing women to Jesus Christ and getting them back on the streets witnessing for the Lord. Today, God is raising a mighty army of Spirit-filled soul-winners and evangelists. But we must have help to continue. Today’s problems are much worse than those I encountered in New York in 1958. I pray you will stand with us in prayer and support.”
