Emmanuel

Emmanuel

Child Village: Zambia
Child ID: CF021
Emmanuel’s mother died in 2005 and his father in 2006. He then lived with his grandmother and aunt with three other orphaned children. The aunt sold vegetables to provide for the family but the children were not being cared for adequately and there was no money available for them to attend school. Social welfare stepped in and placed 2-year-old Emmanuel at Rafiki Village in Zambia in 2008 where he began to thrive. Emmanuel believes Jesus is the Savior and the Son of God. He has learned that God wants him to live like Jesus: to listen, obey, trust, and have faith in Him. One thing Emmanuel asks God for in prayer is protection. God has answered him by protecting him from evil and from getting hurt. Emmanuel is creative and forgiving, and is learning endurance. He needs to learn obedience, gentleness, and how to avoid making trouble. Emmanuel is an active and likeable boy and takes much pleasure in playing with his peers in the school and Village. While his sociability can be a fine trait, sometimes it interferes with good behavior choices. Emmanuel needs serious refocusing during his class time as well as in his private school work. He has not yet learned the importance or significance of his personal commitment to learning. His reliance upon teachers and other students often overshadows his own efforts. Not many weeks are left in this school year for a much-needed turn around.
