Christopher’s House, our home for boy’s, is now full to capacity. All beds are taken!
I actually don’t know much about Fredrick, the last guy to move in. He just arrived yesterday, and I haven’t even made it over there to meet him yet. Ali, one of the house parents, told me about Fredrick a few weeks ago, and after talking with the family and explaining everything he finally was able to move in.
Let me recap our basic philosophy on orphan-care for you:
We replace what is missing, which is namely family. The house parents are the mom and dad for the orphans, and their children become siblings. Everyone lives in the same place, eats the same food, watches the same movies, studies together, plays together, etc. All the stuff a family would do together.
We believe, and have seen it work now for more than three years, that this method of orphan-care goes a long way to giving the children a future and a hope.
By keeping the families small we keep them more natural, they are easier to manage, and more economical.
Many thanks to our donors, who have made it possible for us to create a space where six young men can have a future and a hope.
27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. (James 1:27, New King James Version)
