What’s on my heart right now?
A fifteen year old boy who dropped out of school at 6th grade. Yesterday he went to school for the first time in over 6 months. He came back from school so happy and excited – he brought back books and things for us to study together. He went to school again today. I heard him tell somebody, “I’m going to school because Leslie is helping me study.” Last night I kept waking up all through the night feeling for him. I prayed for him through the night on and off between sleeping. I feel like this is such a big step for him. He finally feels he has hope to pass this grade.
A mom trying to live her life after spending years working as a prostitute. She was trafficked from Nicaragua to Costa Rica and worked as a prostitute for years. Now she has three kids – the father of the kids abandoned her and she is trying to raise them without returning to her former job. But she is struggling to make ends meet and pay her rent. She became a Christian this year while at a feeding for the homeless.
A boy living on the streets – homeless – coming to the ramp to skate. His smile, his timid eyes, fearful, checking everything out.
My heart is full and burdened right now with. Pray with me, please.
