God is doing some amazing things inside the hearts of the children, He is a father to the fatherless. One kid when I first met him he wouldn’t participate. If a kid was next to him he would pick a fight and try to punch or kick them. Whenever he was there you would know trying to teach or have conversation would be challenging because he would be so disruptive. The first sentence I remember him saying was “I don’t believe in God and don’t try to tell me He is real, and hell rocks.” then he sat back in his chair and folded his arms. The woman he said it to had the best response. She said ok I’m not but God will. After about a month and a half a kid who seemed to pay no attention to what we were talking about and being disruptive completely changed. He went from being violent toward others to being kind. He went from arguing/disruptive to telling other kids to be quiet and listen. From not participating in activities to wanting to talk to Jesus and to hear God speak to him. During one activity we had them ask Jesus how He is helping them and to write it down then to write down how they are helping Jesus. He said Jesus is helping me to be respectful, kind,and to not hurt others. On a prayer request a week later he asked God to give him a home, for God to help him be respectful, and at the bottom of the card he wrote I have one comment God Rocks! I know it was our prayers that broke through and God changed his heart. He isn’t at the facility anymore I think he has been placed in foster care. As I’m writing this I am asking God to bring someone in his life to continue to teach him to walk with the Lord Jesus, and please do the same. This kid is a leader and one day will be a mighty man of God.

In November I left my job to follow the Lord as He called us to ministry. I no longer had an income and in December God told me I would see a shift in my season and that His provision would come in February. I knew the Lord was going to establish the relationships and bring the people to sow into our ministry. In the waiting and contending for Gods provision I remained faithful in my calling. When Feb 1st came it was make it or break it. We had to have peoples hearts move and give to what God is doing through our ministry. I sat down on my steps and said Lord You called me to this ministry. To go to the orphan to the widow and to call fathers to turn there hearts to the children and children to their fathers. Don’t make me now a man who cant provide for his family and don’t show yourself to be a father who doesn’t provide for His children. Give me a testimony to your name not shame. Coming into feb we were almost $3,000 behind on our bills. On Tuesday night feb 3rd I had a dream and a man was going before me in a crowed of people telling them about my ministry and as they came toward me they would say your the one doing this ministry? Here and they would hand me money to sow into my ministry. When I woke up on Wednesday I knew Gods provision would come and He was going before me. I came home at 2 from serving with the Lord and I came through the door and said to my wife I am contending and God will give us $3,000 by Thursday. Her reply was that’s great I’ve had the kids all day and I’m tired. I’m going to take a nap. I was going to take that time to rest as well but immediately my phone buzzed. A person was asking if I could drive them to pick up their car. I said ok on my way and as I went to get my jacket the Lord said I will give you your need. I pick them up and they say hey I feel like God wants me to give to your ministry, and what your doing is a really big deal. They then hand me a check for $2,000. The next day Thursday I’m at a meeting a woman is there who I had never seen before. She introduces her self shes from Canada visiting for a week. I introduce myself and my family. She then says I feel like God wants me to give this to you and gives me $300. I tell her about my ministry then and she invites us to lunch and wants to pay for our meal. Someone else picks up the tab and she gives us the money she was going to use and gives us $100 more. And after I tell what God is doing another person gives $6. When I go out to do outreach that night to the orphans a check comes to my wife for $150 and also a $50 check had came. We receive $2606 exactly what we need to get completely caught up plus 6 cents. There were key points when God would stir me in faith between December and February. He said to me once as I reading I have called you the same way I called my disciples to fallow me. It’s not easy it is hard but I am with you. Anything you ask in faith I will give you. I was determined to give God till the last minute before I would seek help anywhere but from Him. I said I will Give you till the last minute of the last minute to give me a testimony of your glory and provision. I pray that this testimony increases your faith as you read it and to trust God for His provision. Lets be faithful stewards and allow God to bless us in our going out.
