A family came to our Johnston County outreach for the first time with their school age daughter who is struggling with gender identity.  A volunteer from out of town visiting for a local church conference was able to relate about a similar struggle she had in her life and how Jesus showed her the way.  She took the entire family aside, prayed, and listened lovingly to their struggles.  After earning their trust, she took the daughter aside to pray and talk with her.  They left having been heard, valued, cared for, loved and encouraged.
