30 Days...go Dan!

30 days! For the last 30 days Dan has lived at Mercy Children's Home. For the last 30 days he had some major life changes! He's...

•Slept in a bed every night.
•Had clean clothes to wear every day.
•Had shoes on his feet every day.
•Eaten 3 meals and a snack every day.
•Attended school 5 and a half days a week.
•Received tutoring 5 days a week.
•Brought many smiles to our faces.
•Attended church regularly.
•Participated in Bible study.
●Wednesday he tested 3rd in his class out of 34 students!

I can't tell you how happy my Momma heart is. Dan is an amazing young man. When he started school 4 weeks ago he wanted to be placed in 4th grade (he's 14 years old) because he had not yet completed that grade. We pushed him to go to 5th, because he tested high enough in 4th that we figured with some help 5th grade would be good for him. So 4 weeks into his 5th grade year, 5 months into the Kenyan school year and he is 3rd in his class! Thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers and support for Dan! We are so excited for God to provide the funds to finish the boys dorm so we can go and get more boys that are in the same situation that Dan was just 30 days ago. Every time we go to town the street boys ask about Dan and ask us when they too can come and live here.

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this; to care for orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained from the world. James 1:27
