The little boy in the striped shirt part three! SAFE!

This passed week we went to the slums,
but before we got there Courtney 
{one of the girls on the team} 
was feeling really sick.

 so as soon as we got to the slums
we switched van's and I went with her back to the guest house.

I was really sad as I left because I realized I wasn't going to get to see

"The Little Boy in the Striped shirt" 

I wasn't going to get to see his little brother either.

I was so sad. 

But I thought maybe somebody on the team will see him and take some pictures.

Well then Sunday came around and nobody had mentioned seeing him and his brother.

 I was so sad.

But then I looked over as I was coming out of church in Ssenge village 
and there was John {kisam's little brother} 
all dressed up and at church.

And then I found out that he has joined African Hearts Boy's home in Ssenge!
I was so excited and I couldn't believe it!!
I was so Happy!

Some of you may know "John" as the little boy who was trampled 
when we were getting ready for the wedding off of my mom's blog.

Then I asked about Kisam and found out that his guardian wouldn't release him
so that he could move to the boys home.

I was so heartbroken.

The little boy in the striped shirt was alone in the slums.

Then Friday came around as I walked up to greet the boys and Moreen.

I looked over and there was Kisam! 
He was safe!
At last finally he was being cared for and loved.

I am so excited to show you the little boys in the slums -
that are now safe at
African Hearts Boys Home!

Yippee Jesus!
That's God for you!
Thank you for all of your prayers!

 and now you can all see that -
