Their Story

Meet Mo

mo Mo grew up in "The Bottoms" - a neighbourhood in Columbus, Ohio, USA, originally named because of its lower elevation. The name has stuck, however, due to the crime rate in the area.Mo lived with his grandmother from a young age because his mother was a drug addict; he didn't know his father. Too poor for school supplies and shoes and other things that young people his age were accustomed to, Mo was eager to become old enough to get a job, so he could move back with his mother - which he did. Things became difficult, however, as she began turning to him for money to support her crack cocaine habit.Mo became a Christian at the start of middle school. He says, "YFC changed my life a lot...opened my eyes to what's really real." He credits Youth for Christ with helping him learn about God and challenging him to "step up to the plate." Read More...
