Home Visits.

After spending the morning at the Academy, we spent the afternoon visiting homes in Choma.

First we visited the homes of two orphans from the Academy- they invited us in, and got to tell us some of their story. We asked them questions, and heard about their dreams for their lives.

I appreciated the entire experience very much.

We also got to pray for them- I can't tell you how much hope I have for these two young men.

Here is an excerpt from one of Micah's prayer emails to our partners,
Markson lost both of his parents to AIDS five years ago. He has lived on and off with his uncle trying to find odd jobs to pay for his education. Unfortunately, he has experienced terrible emotional, physical, and sexual abuse in that home. So much so, had had to run away. He came to the academy a year ago and started playing trombone.

He was nearly evicted a few months ago when we began helping with his housing. He said he is filled with hope and has a dream to change the world with music. He says without it he would be dead.

This is why we do what we do.

These are incredible young men. Pray for them.
