We met with Isaac and his sister today and told them we would take Isaac. To say they were happy is an understatement! The sister said after I had told she and Isaac to go home and pray about the situation that Isaac prayed very hard and was crying. This really puts it all in perspective, hey? This just goes to show that when these kids are given a chance, they thrive. Isaac wants to be here which is important. He is a little reserved and at times seems sad but if you coax him, he has a great smile. I guess I would be sad too if I had gone through what he has at such a young age. Derek is thriving in the school. He has made friends and seems very happy. Dixon, the older boy, told Joshephat that he was amazed at the way God is providing for them all and that they are so grateful.
With the money you sent we were able to buy mattresses, pillows, blankets, personal things like toothbrushes, a rug and cushions for the couch. We placed an order for bunk beds. This is going to be life-changing for these boys and a blessing. You can't help but give thanks when you see such overwhelming positive changes in these boys lives. I managed to take some pics with my broken camcorder. Without a screen I can't tell what menu is on the screen so I just kept pointing and shooting hoping to get something. I took about 150 shots and all that came out was 10.
We will continue to look to God to provide.
