The Children are so Thankful!
Although this year has been tough, there’s always something to be thankful for!
“O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.” Psalms 107:1
“I’m very thankful that we have so many people willing to help”
— JENNA, AGED 15, NEW MEXICO
“I’m extremely thankful that we were able to raise the money for a new fence and that the project will be finished soon.
“I am also very thankful that we have so many people willing to help donate food and meet other needs that we have.”
“I thank God every day for the blessings He gives to me”
— CHARISMA, AGED 16, TAMPA
“There are many things I am thankful for, like being at Hope, but there is one thing in particular this year.
“At the end of August, my grandmother was exposed to the coronavirus. When I heard that news, I was really scared! My grandma took a test to see if she had it, and we had to wait a few days for the results.
“While waiting, we were coming home from church one day, and a song was playing on the radio entitled, “Your Ways are Higher than Mine.” This song made me realize that the situation was in God’s hands, and that I just needed to pray and have faith.
“A couple days later, my house parent told me my grandmother tested negative. I was so relieved!
“I am thanking God every day for the blessings He gives to me!”
“It was a blessing that we could get the food we needed for our meals”
— DAVID, AGED 15, HONDURAS
“What I’m thankful for is the people that do deliveries on their motorcycles. We are able to order from grocery stores, pharmacies and other places, and they bring it right to our door on their bike.
“They risk knowing that somebody could have COVID but are willing to do their job and provide the things that we need. We used their service many times when my houseparents weren’t allowed to circulate, and it was a blessing that we could get the food we needed for our meals!
“I’m also thankful for the internet because with it we can do school. The internet helps us do our homework easier and faster and helps us to not be bored sometimes. I am thankful for these things and many others too!”
