Hope House for Boys

It is such a joy to see what has been accomplished in the lives of young boys who were hopelessly lost but have been given hope and a future through the Hope House Project – which is a residential home for 20 boys.

During our last visit at the end of October 2015, we met three young boys who had given their lives to the Lord and had just been baptised in the Christian Fellowship Church where they worship every Sunday.

Our ultimate goal is to see many children accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and enter into a personal relationship with Him. We praise God that this brings to ten, the total number of boys in Hope House who have done so over the last 18 months. Our thanks to God for the couple from the Christian Fellowship Church who come every week to encourage the boys and help them study God’s word.

Sadie asked Hugo why he wanted to be baptised and his reply was:

“I wanted to show the public that I was serious about the change in my life and I wanted it made known that I now worship Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. I hope that this will encourage the other boys in Hope House to also take this step.”

When asked what he enjoyed most about Hope House, Hugo replied “It is great to have a loving home, to be educated and most of all to learn about Jesus.” After enquiring about his early childhood, I could see tears in his eyes and clearly he didn’t want to talk about it – the memories were too painful. Such a transformation in his life!

We pray that God will protect these young boys, that they will mature in their Spiritual walk with Him and that God will use them to reach others with the good news of the gospel.
