Boys Just Wanna Have Fun

11 Mar

Happy smiles are nice.  Warm and fuzzy.  These four boys could be from Bluffton, IN-well maybe from Ft Wayne.  But they are not.  They are from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  They are the winners… life, not soccer or tag.  If a picture had been taken of them and six of their friends when they were babies, one of the ten would have been with Jesus before he turned five.  Only one of these guys will ever learn to read and write.  These fellas could already belong, or at the least have friends that belong, to the group of children that don’t go home at night.  They can’t…they don’t have one.  Some reports say that as many as 70,000 children live on the streets in Addis Ababa.  On the street of a city of 3,000,000 people is a tuff place for an eight year old.   They are easy targets for exploitation and abuse.  It is with this group that LSM desires to be sharing hope with hearts.
