The young man’s mother left him and the family when he was very young, and his father asked him to find his own place when he was 16. When Craig & Debbie Borgard first met ‘S’ about two years ago, he was shy, reserved and stayed away from being in a group of people. Over the past year he has accepted more of Craig & Debbie’s invitations to come to things like a hymn sing and Thanksgiving celebration. He also went with the Borgards to Romania last May to deliver shoe box care packages to gypsy children. The young man not only helped the team in many ways, but he also attended devotions each morning. During the Thanksgiving meal, the Borgards asked each one to tell something for which they were thankful. ‘S’ also gave thanks. When he signed their guest book, he wrote that he is amazed at how welcome he feels at their Christian activities and among the Christians he has been meeting. Please pray that ‘S’ would find his hope in the Gospel and from God’s Word. Craig & Debbie pray that he would be open to going through a discipleship course together with them.
