STORIES OF IMPACT
"I felt great pain when my mom and dad died. It still hurts so much,” Andy said. “After that day, my life was never the same. I decided to roam the streets. I started to have bad habits and bad friendships. I stole. I sold drugs. I was really out of control, and was sent to a juvenile detention center. But God put angels around me to support me. From now on, I will honor the memory of my parents. I will change the destiny of my life. I will overcome!”
"I never imagined that I would be in prison, be a shame for my family, and be the subject of TV news stories. While I was inside the detention center, I listened to the Orphan Helpers teachers talk about God’s plans and purposes. The confinement helped me to get closer to God and get away from the negative influences in my life.”
"I was influenced by a group of boys who did not bring anything positive to my life and I began breaking the law. When I ended up in the detention center, I remember the love and support they (Orphan Helpers teachers) showed me, and the Word of God they placed in my heart. Every time I attended the Academy, I noticed significant changes in my life. I thank God for giving me new opportunities and for the Orphan Helpers team for believing in me!”
