(An excerpt from a blog written December, 2017)
This job is chock full of incredible gifts which come to me often, and from very surprising directions. My gift yesterday came from one of our outreach family, a young man named Godlove. He popped into my office and wanted to “chat”.
The day before I had asked about his future dreams and he felt he had not explained himself properly and wanted an opportunity to do so. I was so impressed with his message and how he presented it that I asked him to write it down. I have transposed the following exactly as he wrote it . . . his grammar, his voice, even his spelling mistakes to give you an example of just how far some of our children have come. We help them, yes. We provide every possible support we can afford, but at the end of the day it is really up to them to decide upon their futures. I am so happy to share this with you as we enter 2018 . . . to thank every one of you who helps support us here. This is our thank you. This is the ONLY way our children can repay us for what we give them. Karibu Godlove . . . you are so very welcome!
