Prescott Community Outreach
While we are busy trying to get ready for Easter and filing our taxes, life is pretty steady for the neighborhood youth. I thought I’d take a moment and introduce you to some of my regular La Paz House kids.
Chuckie is a fairly good kid who lives with his mom. He is 15 and learning to be responsible and is pretty good at helping repair bicycles. Nay Nay and Denisha live down the block. Their parents are working 4 jobs to provide for their family. They both struggle with their egos and get into arguments and sometimes fights. Christopher and Amaris live across from the church with their dad and grandmother. They recently have been enrolled in a Christian school, but struggle between Christian living and the way city kids act and talk. Christopher quits swearing about once a week. We have a lot of talks about God. Michael gets off the bus at his dad’s house and walks up to La Paz House. He often gets left without a way home to his mom’s house who recently moved several miles away. Adrian just recently moved back into the neighborhood. He lost his dad several years ago. His mom recently got out of jail. Through this and his ADHD, he has made a lot of improvements in his behavior, which he is proud of and I look for opportunities to encourage him. Luis and Gilberto are brothers and seem to be able to do whatever they want. They struggle in school but don’t seem to care much. We try to get them to care about their future. Miranda comes up to La Paz House to get away from here house. She struggles with her mom and her mom’s new boyfriend. She is trying to get back into school after trying to (unsuccessfully) home school herself.
Thank you for helping us make a difference in these kids lives. We are blessed to be in a position to love theses kids. Feel free to pray for our La Paz House kids!
We love you all!
