UKRAINE – Last month, we took in two young teenage boys who had been brought to us by the police. They are orphans who had run away from their foster family. They were being starved, forced to work hard, and beaten constantly.

Our nurse is treating their wounds and bruises from their “past life” and they are adapting to us. As we made our preparations for the school year and bought the new things they needed, they were overwhelmed to the point of tears because no one had done that for them before.

We thank God for bringing them to us and trust Him to heal, restore and strengthen these boys! We are so grateful for our partners in giving them a safe and loving home at Living Pearl.
