Patrick is one of our star students! He works hard in school and is at the top of his class. He and his brothers lost their father during the election violence of 2008, and after their mother passed from Tuberculosis they had no family to turn to.
When I first met this firecracker of a kid soon after we rescued him in 2015, he was standing in a circle of older boys at the Center. I marveled at his fearlessness and ability to banter equally with these new “brothers” which towered over him. Patrick is extremely funny, throwing out zingers and one liners without missing a beat. I love his wry smile and the twinkle he gets in his eye when he knows he’s made a witty quip. He is also extremely bright and thriving in school (#1!) and talks of becoming a soldier one day, “To fight injustice.” He and his brother, Billy, are sponsored by the wonderful Huff family and we are forever grateful for their support.
We look forward to seeing where God takes Patrick in his life and know He has big plans for this bright young man.
