James, now 16 years old, came into our home 8 1/2 years ago with his two brothers and two sisters. When James came to Hope, he was very behind in school and struggled emotionally. Over the years, not only has he grown physically (over 12 inches in just one year!), he has accepted Jesus Christ as his Saviour, is back on his grade level making A’s and B’s for the first time ever in his life, and has found victory over some of the emotional issues of his past.
For many years, James and his brothers lived in the boys dorm separately from their sisters in the girls dorm. It was a blessing as we opened our second cottage this past year to be able to allow this family to live together in the same home. We are excited to see how James has grown spiritually and made this important step of baptism in his spiritual life. Please pray for James and his family as they continue to follow the Lord’s leading is their lives.
