Frederick*, a first-grade student, was staying with his single mother after their dad left them due to irreconcilable family differences. After a very short illness his mother went to be with the Lord. The children were left alone in a hopeless state and their future was bleak. As a result, Frederick’s life changed drastically. He started running away from school for more than two weeks at a time. He did not have a home to go to or a place to run to. With the child’s interest at heart, the social worker started gathering information about the dad and how best to improve Frederick’s life.
His dad was brought in and informed how his kids were suffering and how they were destined to be homeless street children. He agreed to take them back. The social worker brought in the counselor for the child to be counseled and guided on how to overcome his loss and pursue his life normally.
Currently Frederick and his brother are staying with the father while the school is doing all it can to ensure he is fed and continues with his education. We thank God for the progress so far and we continue to pray that God transforms this student and family.
