He restores my soul.

I am very glad to announce that our 11 fourth & fifth level students who took the 6th grade test passed!! We are thrilled because as you see with Yanick in the picture below they are growing up. Yanick is around 16th years old and had no school until he came to live with us September of 2006. He has excelled in school even while he has had to learn to submit to authority & not use his own strength to get through life. I am very proud of him and all the boys who have been doubling up on school so as to prepare for the test and move forward. The Lord is truly a restorer of souls.

Shanick, the scholar

As I've written before, 13 year old Shanick loves learning. I thought that it was sweet that since I was in U.S. he has had Michael send me 3 of his drawing assignments. Here is a picture of him and below is his map of Congo.
