Sam dreaded school. Every day was a hardship.
Sam and his little brother Stevie went to bed some nights without having food to eat. Focusing on homework assignments was almost impossible. Sam was taunted because his clothes didn’t fit and were dirty. He was embarrassed. He felt hopeless. That was until Sam and Stevie came to Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH).
Last year, back-to-school sponsors helped change Sam’s life! He and his brother were given three meals a day plus snacks. Their worn-out, dirty clothes were replaced by new clothes and shoes that fit. In school, Sam began to thrive. Last fall, he took his math end-of-course exam. Sam couldn’t believe the results. He received a “5” – the highest level a student can achieve! He scored in the upper 5% of everyone who took the test – he surpassed the average scores of those in his school, district and in all N.C. In addition, Sam was selected to be a part of his school’s elite, honor choir.
As you can imagine, Sam’s self-esteem soared! But that’s not all. At BCH, Sam and his little brother heard the Gospel and asked Jesus into their hearts. Your generosity helped change these boys’ lives for eternity!
