We, Jim, Cathy, Andy & Hector would like to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! The boys will be going home for a pretty long Christmas break with their families so pray for them. Pray that they make wise choices and that they help out wherever they can at their family gatherings. Pray that they continue to show their family the changes they have made in their lives because of their relationship with Jesus.
Jim and I are excited to hopefully see one of our past boys over this Christmas break. I wrote about him in the newsletter that I just posted on the website. After I sent this newsletter out he contacted us again and will be in Iowa for Christmas and wants to come out to see us and bring his daughter out to meet us. This is why the heartaches of this ministry are worth every bit of it.
One of our boys and I was having a little heated discussion the other day and he said why do you love us? I said because I do and I will continue. Please pray that this boy will continue to accept this love instead of trying to push it away at times. God's love is unconditional and that is what we have to teach these boys. Some days I will have to say it is not easy but that is what we are called to do and as long as God continues to give us the strength and peseverance we will continue on in this ministry.
Thank you all for your continued support in this ministry.
