A New Spiritual Reservoir
Alex’s houseparents were saddened by his lack of interest in spiritual things. He talked about his lack of faith, but he did express an interest in learning more about God. Alex came from a difficult family situation. Just before he came into our care, his father died.
For the last three years we have had the privilege of helping Alex. We also watched him grow emotionally, academically, socially and —praise the Lord— spiritually.
Alex’s spiritual growth really became evident after a week at Christian summer camp. He decided he wanted to be baptized. Alex was excited to tell his houseparents that he trusted Jesus Christ as his Savior during camp.
Alex is still dealing with his difficult past, but he has a new reservoir of spiritual strength of his faith and trust in the Word of God. It is a blessing for the other children in the home and staff to watch him grow.
Alex has become an inspiration to his fellow students and friends in the public school. He is following through on his decision to be baptized.
He, along with two other children from the children’s home, are meeting with their pastor. He is encouraging their faith and preparing them for what they might like to say when they get baptized.
God is working in the lives of the children He has entrusted to us. In III John 4:4, John expresses his joy by saying:
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”
We feel the same way about our children here.
We want to say thank you to all those who step up to help the Baptist Children’s Home through prayer, financial support, and those who care directly for the children. We can’t do any of this without you. Your generosity makes it possible.
