David has lived at one of our supported homes since he was six years old! At that time, he was malnourished and weak as he was healing from tuberculosis. The home leaders were dedicated to helping him heal, and he quickly improved!
Since then, he has enjoyed growing up in a home that empowers him and gives him the tools he needs to survive. He has done well in school and is currently pursuing his Bachelor degree in nursing! This is a huge testament to the faithfulness of God. We know that the Lord has been walking with David since before he came to our home, and even still as he works hard to achieve his dreams. And David gives the glory back with his love for worship and preaching!
Obviously schooling has changed this year, but David continues to do his best while studying from home. He chose to share some of his experience below.
“The virus has caused the whole world to go through a tough time. We need to pray for all who are affected. I was lucky to be home before the lockdown as I am pursuing a degree in BSC (nursing) and I have one more year. Our college has been shut down and I’m at home busy with the online classes going on.
At home, everyone is doing good and are healthy. We have been able to spend good time with family and enjoy watching movies together.
We are keeping things clean and sanitized. Sometimes it is boring to stay at one place though!
My favorite memory verse is Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you. Be not dismayed, for I am your God: I will strengthen you, I will help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
As children of God, we needn’t fear but should be cautious about it and try to help others.”
We are so proud of David and his accomplishments. This is why we keep working hard! So that more children who are in need of a safe home to help them heal can find one. There are more children that need to be trained up and encouraged for their future. Every donation helps give hope to those children.
