Wander Javier, 10, had been living on the streets by day and from house to house among relatives at night. His mother is reportedly mentally ill and living on the streets. He has enjoyed playing with the other boys at Josiah’s House who have literally taken him under their wing. He sleeps peacefully and soundly in his own bed each night and enjoys building things with the toy blocks in his room. Many times during the day he’ll say, “Que Buena Vida!”, which means “This is a good life!” We thank God for rescuing this little boy from a life of abandonment and abuse and installing him as a son of the Kingdom of God and of Josiah’s House!
Eddy Junior, 9, was the youngest of several children in his family. His father has passed away and his mother struggles daily to keep food on the table. Although he is nine, he appears to only be four or five because he is so small and obviously malnourished. Every time he eats, he devours the food we give him. He is adjusting very well to life at Josiah’s House with the other boys and appears to have quite a throwing arm! He is currently a second grader at the local Christian school.
