I'm so very grateful for the entire NL staff that is so much more than 'caretakers' for our children. Their love goes way beyond the 'call of duty ' to a real parent, a real family, a true God given love to see them through each day, and each phase of life. Just as each of our birth children , Sometimes that means loving discipline as well as Godly teaching , instruction and counciling . Each of our administrative staff as well as our Nannies take a vital part in the child's life, caring, providing, nurturing and Counciling. Behind the scenes are literally hours of loving council giving Godly direction. Today was no different as most of the day was spent with several of our young men , some with their families in Pastor Seides office, praying,counciling and giving carful guidance to their future. I was blessed to continue to see and hear Pastor Seide , offer the wisdom and loving council along with Pastor Samuel and Andremese accompanying council. It was evident as always that is more than a job and position , but a true fathers heart and family's heart for each one. Today, was very special as you see the joy on Shabas face with his brother ,OlChrist and his dad and younger brother preparing for the school year and their future. It was also special to see the love poured out for another outside hurting 18 year old young man who's mom died in the EQ and he ended up on drugs and alcohol. We were able to get him into school, we all prayed together, and he's going to church tomorrow with Andremese. It's exciting thanks to each one of you that is a part, here and at home, to see each one growing up and we are blessed to continue to give the assistance they need to be productive citizens.
Thank you for your love and prayers. Miriam
