The Prodigal Sons Motorcycle Ministries Group recently rolled into Pine Grove Youth Conservation Camp to share their Christian faith, music, skits and testimonies.

Approximately 30 motorcycles, cars and vans arrived to share the day with the young offenders. Several youth in the ministry shared their stories of inspiration to show them it is possible to make positive changes and live a healthy and happy lifestyle.

They were at camp for about four hours. There were 60 volunteers sharing words of hope, encouragement and inspiration with the offenders.

They also held dance and singing contests. The guys  were also able to look at the motorcycles and speak individually with the volunteers. The volunteers also offer mentoring for youth, and shared their information.

Youth from Pine Grove were able to tell some of their own stories during the event.
