Well I attended MPBA in 1999 and left after a year in a half in 2000. (i was 14 when i entered and 15 when i left)
Before,i was sent there because i, (the old man within), was a runaway and a druggie. I would run away from home many and many of times that my mother and father would stay up all night wondering if the God above would have His hand upon me. (Let me add to you one thing my parents are not Christians.) BUt of course like most parents every time that i would come home they were just so happy to see me that they would just forgive me and give me another chance, especially because i would promise to them that i would change, but the problem was that i didn't know how exactly how i could change. So after a year of my parents threating to send me away it finally became real.
So there i was-it was my turn to enter in to MPBA. Of course at first i was begging them to not leave me there and that i would change (this was when they had to say goodbye to me) but remember i couldn't change because i didn't know how... so that's when i began my journey about learning about the Lord.
While i was there not only did i learned how to receive God as my Saviour; i learned how to become a modest young girl, instead of a 14yold girl that who would flunt her body to the world by wearing hardly any clotheswhich made young or older boys look at me so that they might influence me to have sex, i also learned how to do my own laundry, because i had it so good at home that my mother would do it for me, i also learned how to respect others by being polite by saying... (to be continued)..
