We’d like to introduce to you to some very special boys! Each of them has a tragic story to share; one of poverty and hunger, of losing a parent, and of not knowing where he will sleep or get his next meal. But now — for these boys — that is not their whole story. Now their story is one of love and safety. Now their story is of a warm bed and full stomach. Now they live in Joshua Boys’ Home!
Every day these boys experience God’s provision in tangible ways through a house mom who cooks them meals and helps with their homework, who hugs them and makes sure they have clean clothes to wear. Since coming to live at this home, the boys have learned how to pray, read their bible, and put their trust in God.
