Home of Grace
He is eight, the paperwork says.
He looks less than 6. Tiny hands, tiny feet, such a little boy.
He was found chained up in a small dark bathroom.
He was given away by his mother to a couple who faked his birth certificate.
A crime in this country.
He was severely malnourished and delayed when he was rescued one year ago.
For the last year, he has stayed in an institution that dealt with the malnutrition and not much else.
Yesterday, we sat around the conference room table...
his little legs dangling from the chair. I held his hand, and to my surprise, he held mine back.
You will be okay, I promise.
His dark brown eyes held mine.
Home of Grace.
a place for boys who have experienced trauma;
a place of love and healing;
a place for their bodies to heal;
a place for their minds to develop;
a place for their spirits to grow.
This is our second home.
We opened in faith and need committed donors for this project to move forward.
The need is tremendous.
Our main home in Manila is full but referrals continue to come...
referrals of broken, abused, and abandoned little boys.
Boys that need to know they are safe;
Boys that need to be held so they can grieve;
Boys that need to run and play in freedom;
Boys that will one day, become men.
Help us bring healing to these precious children so that they will know that God has a plan for their life and God will never abandon them.
