You may ask if it is really possible for love to make a difference……
William* is a young boy who have been bumped around by the sharp edges of live.
His father is not present in his life and his mother’s drinking problem has been a major sharp edge in his forming years.

He and two of his siblings were removed from her care and sent to live in an orphanage for a few years. They are now back with her, but she is still struggling with the addiction.

William has major anger problems and his first reaction in any difficult situation is to be on the attack. He does not allow anyone near him. He uses hard words as weapon of defence.

After looking into his eyes for the first time, God opened up a deep well of compassion  in my heart for him.  The first hug we shared left him stiff as a ramrod not sure of what to do. He was like a scared bird, his heart, screaming out for the crumbs, but too scared to come close. 

I kept on trying. I kept on hugging. God did the rest.

In this time, during a group session, we talked about what to do when the gangs in their neighbourhood start fighting.  The children was in unity about getting home as soon as possible.

William suggested that we can pray!  When I asked him what we can pray for, his words brought tears to my eyes……

”We can pray that the gangsters become obedient”  Amen Lord!
