"Slowly [the boys] are beginning to realize they're getting the best...and to also give the best out of their lives."
--John & Mwila, houseparents at Zambia's Student Life Homes
Since January, three Student Life Homes in Zambia are providing a safe environment for 39 students in the freshman class. This move gives them a place where they can thrive in a healthy, family environment away from the temptations and negative influences found in the compound where they were raised.
As expected, it's been a bit of an adjustment for the 11 boys in John & Mwila's home. Learning to function as a family with roles, rules, and certain expectations has taken some time to get used to for a group of boys who are accustomed to living on their own, answering only to themselves.
As you heard in their testimony, John & Mwila have not only met hardships along the way, but have experienced great joy of slowly transformed lives of boys like Bernard. Rejoice in God's goodness and work in this home as Zambia's future leaders are being raised today...
Will you join us in praying for John, Mwila, and the 11 boys in their home? Pray for God's Spirit to be among them. Thank God for the growth they have seen in the past few months. Ask God to give John & Mwila wisdom and discernment to parent each of the boys for His glory.
