Philippians 1:6 “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
We have exciting news about Charles and David– they have both been accepted and enrolled in Mogotio Polytechnic, where they will be pursuing a course in Metal Work. All of us at P82 are just so proud of them we could burst- we know you are too.
As children, Charles and David both lived in poverty. Charles is one of four children, and, although he lives with both parents, his mother is the only one who is able to work. David has 6 siblings, and his mother is unable to work. They slept on the streets often as children and their families could not afford clothing or new shoes, let alone school fees. When we heard their story, we reached out to them to join our program. We are so grateful for their sponsors and the donors that provided basic needs, tuition, healthcare, clothing, and shoes for the boys.
Both boys struggled in school, although they worked hard. Unfortunately, their exam scores were not high enough for traditional college. But we know that God has a purpose for their lives. We are unwilling to give up on these precious boys who tried so hard. Philippians 1:6 says that God is writing a story in each one of us- and God writes the best stories. Charles and David may have struggled in school, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have hope and a future. God is not done with them or their story. He has made a way for them to study a trade, earn a living, and have a bright future. That’s why we are rejoicing for the boys to have this chance to join a trade. We know they are hard workers, and we know that God is for them. We are so thankful!
