Samuel—A Youth Empowered
I introduced you to Samuel a few years ago, a young man, orphaned as an infant and raised by his grandmother. At that time he was looking after her as best he could in such a poverty stricken environment. He was, and is, an ambitious and hard working lad. When his grandmother died I asked Samuel his hopes for the future and he promptly replied that he would like to be a carpenter. I had often observed him working with his hands. For many years a Canadian woman has been sending support funds to this family and when she heard of his ambition, not only paid for carpentry training but also the tools he requested. But Samuel had one more surprise. A member of the team from Canada in May befriended him and added a few more tools to his collection. Newly married, Samuel now has a promising future.
