Our Needs List
Our New Boys
The boys in their favorite place the kitchen! We have admitted several new boys to our school since the last newsletter. Jared, who is 13, came to us from State Road, NC. He has been with us about 2 months. He has
settled in nicely and we are trying to help Jared work through the issues that keep him from living at home. Jared says he knows he is saved but he has not given the Lord full control in his life. Please pray that Jared will learn to let the Lord lead him. Tommy is our newest boy and he has been with us for about a month. He is 13 years old and he comes to us from Dahlonega, GA. The Lord had to work out several issues for Tommy to be able to come to our school. We are so thankful for the
Financial Support opportunity to have Tommy. Please pray for Tommy’s salvation because he does not understand anything about the Gospel message. We are praying for the Lord to send conviction on Tommy and to give us the wisdom to reach Tommy with the good news of God’s love. We are in the application process with about 3 other families and we have at least 10 applications out right now. Our prayer is that the Lord will send us the boys He wants us to help.
What’s Happening at The Shepherd’s Household So much has happened here at The Shepherd’s Household since our last newsletter…. Danny has made some real progress in school and in working on his issues. We have been able to help him deal with some things from the past. Please pray that he will continue to let the Lord bring healing in his life. It seems like Lane has grown up overnight. He
killed a six point buck during hunting season. He was so excited. Lane faces a lot of issues as new boys come into our home. God has truly given Lane a servant’s heart to be able to share his parents with so many others. He also really tries to help the new boys adjust and learn the way things operate. We pray that Lane will continue to let the Lord guide his life as he gets older.
Speaking of getting older - Jared, Tommy, and Lane all have birthdays in the month of February. Each will be turning 14 and we hope to make each of their birthdays special. We continue to work on the building project. The boys are using the new bathrooms and bedrooms. We still need living room furniture for the open area so the boys can use it too.
New mattresses and box springs for 12 beds. Money to purchase matching comforters, curtains, and decorations for new rooms. Money to purchase towel bars, rugs, shower curtains for new baths. Updated computers for school work stations. Gutters for house and money for other construction materials.
