TRUE LOVE WAITS CLUB (TLWC)
True Love Waits Club is the interactive forum of the Daughters of Sarah and Sons of Promise Ministry, a ministry born out of a deep passion and compassion for the youth in a generation that is plunged into destructive habits and lifestyles.
Psalm 144:11-12 says
“ Rid me, and deliver me from the hands of strange children…
Make our sons in their prime like sturdy oak trees, our daughters as cornerstones (pillars) polished after the similitude of a palace”.
True Love Waits Club provides the platform for that precious son/daughter you cherish to be groomed to fit into the specie described in the above scripture.
They are trained to DARE to be different from the ordinary specie, the strange children, and to stand out as wise leaders who make quality choices and decisions, even when they are not regarded as ‘popular’.
