A New Home



These three brothers came to live here at our center temporarily as their home was destroyed and their mother had no place to keep them together. 

The ministry has been helping the mother build a new home and it’s now finished so these boys can go back home to be with their mother!

It has been so lovely to see how close these three have remained even though, due to their ages, they’ve been in three separate dorms.  They were all three excited to return home to their mom, even Edson, from my dorm, who looks sad here in this photo.  It’s a combination of a bad shot and that he was a little overwhelmed but all the days leading up to it he was so excited!  When the time for actual change comes, it can always be a little challenging. 

Please keep this family in your prayers that they adapt well to being back at home, that they thrive there in the family God created for them.

They look like a great family of brothers. It's so wonderful that they were able to stay there while their new house was being built, and that now they can go home with their mother. Iris is such a great ministry, and God is certainly present there. I'm so glad we all get to be a part of it, no matter how big or small.
