Marlin Mejia
Before giving her life to Christ Marlin suffered a lot from depression and at times had suicidal thoughts. She was the type of girl that made friends easily, had a smile on her face all the time and enjoyed making people feel special, but deep inside she had a void in my heart. Marlin felt sad, alone and afraid. At 6 she started attending Metro Ministries Sunday School and today her life is totally different. Marlin is an example of someone who is from the inner-city and a instead of becoming a product of her environment, she is becoming a product of the hope that she saw through love, ministry, and hope. Marlin graduated with an Early Childhood-Childhood degree and today teaches Grade 2.

Cam Capozi
Cam Capozi by his own admission says "After 40 years of addiction to cocaine and alcohol in August of 2009 in a moment of selfishness and alcohol-induced anger I killed my dear sweet mother Babs Capozzi". At his lowest and most desperate place, Cam found that "there is One who remains true; even after we have chided Him with so much reproach and even after we have rebuffed His love and even His own existence. This One, who has orchestrated the very harmony of the universe, is always willing to re-orchestrate our lives into a new harmony with Himself and His creation. His name is at the very beginning of knowledge. It is, “God, Our Father in Heaven” and we come to know Him well through His Son, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit through Scripture." Today Cam's life has been transformed by the power of Jesus and he lives with a passion to tell others about this life giving, life saving message.
