Sasha and her father reunited.
It’s hard to believe this year is drawing to a close! We could write a book about all that has happened this year at the Ark. In total, 23 children were restored to families! Here’s just one story….
Sasha is a special young lady with a strong desire to have a loving family, a place she could call home and feel loved. She came to the Ark hurting and hungry for love and acceptance. While she was at the Ark, she learned coping skills, patience and, most of all, just how deeply she is loved by the Father! After 14 months at the Ark, she was reunited with her biological father. The family continues to struggle with how to love each other, but Father’s Care stays in contact with them and helps them grow. Sasha is studying at a culinary institute and hopes to become a chef. She is active in church and by example is showing her father the love of Christ.
Unfortunately, Sasha’s family is not an isolated case. Many families in the Kiev area do not know how to cope with the daily struggles of family life. They often turn to alcohol and eventually give up, putting the child on the street. Father’s Care uses every opportunity to minister to the family as a whole and give them hope through the love of Jesus Christ.
At this time of year, “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.” Shoppers rush about trying to fulfill the wishes on everyone’s gift list. Often those gifts satisfy a want but not a need, so we want to provide you with another shopping option. While you are checking your list, will you consider a gift for a child like Sasha?
￼￼￼Perhaps you could share the gift of warmth … a bed … three meals a day. Maybe you could help us take a child from at-risk to thriving by providing:
Food and shelter
In the true spirit of the season, we hope you will consider a gift that will give hope and make a lasting impact on the life of a child. Without your participation we won’t be able to continue helping the children.
Thank you in advance and may the Lord bless you abundantly this holiday season!
