Friends and family, many of you know that we have helped multiple kids and adults with a place to live and to get on their feet. God has been so good to position us to help in these needy situations. One very special child has been with us for many years. Her mother and father were in jail when we took her in at the age of 2. At about 13 she began struggling with life and making poor decisions. She got involved with drugs and gangs by the about age 14. At 15 she ran away and... through the grace of God we were able to recover her. It was then that we felt God leading us to send her to a program to save her life. The burden was so heavy on our hearts that if we didn't do something fast she would be dead unless there was a life change and encounter with God. We felt that God sent us to teen challenge in Seale, Alabama, a faith based program for troubled girls. Last year we enrolled her in the 15 month program. This program is intensive and helps the girls deal with the root issues and gain an understanding of God. She went in the program in late July 2017 and if all goes well, will return home in October 2018. Our visits have shown that she is a changed person. She has only a few months left and lots of emotional work to complete so that she can be successful in life and be secure in her relationship with God and others. She has made so many changes and is now healthy and vibrant with hope in her eyes. Unfortunately, due to my injury, medical expenses and the overall cost of the program she is at risk of having to come home before the end of her program if we do not get donations for the reminder of the cost. The remainder of the cost is $20,000 and without the ability to pay, we will have to bring her home before she has the chance to fully heal from her past and move forward. We know that God has a plan but cannot help to think that she will be let down thinking one more person did not follow through for her. If you are able we are asking for donations to help her complete her program. We are asking you to prayerfully consider helping her complete the program though donation. If you are able and want to give please private message me and I will give you information as to where to send your donation or you can send directly to teen challenge in Seale, Alabama and state it is for Joel and Paula Digby's child. For privacy reasons I do not wish to post her name. In order to keep her in the program we are required to pay 4000 per month until the balance is paid. Thank you for your prayerful consideration and reading this post.
