"Prayer requests" are published every Wednesday and provide us with up-to-the-minute requests to help us cry out to God on behalf of others
This past week we got quite a scare! Two of our main boyz - Kellz and Akeem, nicknamed "Cookie", went missing! They just vanished. Their house was empty. They were gone. Clayon and Jamoy told me that last Wednesday they just up and moved to Niagra Falls. This was quite a shock, as they had no warning. Obviously the thought of getting out of Scarborough is appealing however we didn't even get to say goodbye. We were sad and wondered if we'd ever see them again.
On Sunday, I made my usual rounds to see who needed a ride to church. After I made a few trips, and some guys walked, we had 20 kids out for church which was just amazing! For some reason I did an extra lap around the neighbourhood and walked behind the houses to see who else I could pick up, when I saw Kellz at his back door!! I couldn't believe my eyes. I hugged him tight and didn't want to let him go! He told me the whole story of how they had moved and that they had begged their mom all week to be able to come back to see everyone. Their mom agreed and now they are (hopefully) going to be sticking around till the end of the school year.
Please pray for these guys! You may recognize them from the Christianity Explored graduation. They have grown so much since we first met them. Even today while I was out, Cookie called and asked Hayley "where in the Bible does it say that Satan got kicked out of heaven"? Please pray that we could stay in touch with them, and if they do move in the summer that they would get connected with a church where they live.
