Worldview Changed

I was talking with G, one of kids who comes to Sonshine Center, the other day. G is about 14 years old. He has recently given his life to the Lord, opening up his heart to accept Jesus as his Lord and savior. His home situation is the pits. He lives in one of the poorest slums in the city. His mom is involved in various illegal and immoral activites, so he really does not like going home. Jesus Christ and the Sonshine Center ministry are the only bright spots in his day.

He also helps Chris with the preschool as a paid employee, and he is doing a great job. He has a wonderful way with children, teaching and nurturing them. I told him there might be a future in the education field for him, that he should look into on going to school to one day be a teacher. He told me that he would rather be a missionary. He told me he wants to share with others about the love of Jesus Christ, and maybe one day go to another country as a missionary.

A year ago when I met G he was confused, addicted to sniffing glue, aimless and without much hope. Now he is a positive role model among the other street kids, and he is starting to realize the destiny that God has for him. A year ago his main goals were to find the next meal, survive on the streets, and just get by. Now his ambitions have broadened considerably. He wants to reach his world for Christ.
