As we started to pack our boxes, one of our 13-year-old boys asked, “Do we have a new house yet?” I replied, “No, we don’t have a house yet.” His eyes wide opened in shock and he started counting the days left with his fingers. “But we only have 13 days left!”, he said in disbelief
It all started back in the spring (quite some time ago, eh?). One of our boys, 15 years old, was dating a girl from church. Of course, this was destiny, the butterflies were floating through the sunbeams. Birds everywhere were singing their song.
In February of this year, the boys at the Nehemiah home still not in regular school took their national exams. For most of them, passing this exam means they would be able to go to formal school for the first time in many years. or one boy, it would be the first time in his life.
