Read:Matthew 18:5And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
Children often arrive at Hope Unlimited in the back of a police squad car. They have been taken from their homes or the street by armed police with no idea why—and no idea where they are going. To help them make the transition to their new home at Hope Unlimited, new residents are met by a welcoming committee of their peers, instead of adult staff members. A small group of kids, once anxious and afraid themselves, provide a campus tour, introductions to the Hope Unlimited family, and a sense of security in a very scary world.
Pray:Father, we know being taken from a home, even a very abusive one, or being removed from the streets, when that is the only home they have known, is frightening. Please help them see their move to Hope Unlimited as a new beginning. May their future be bright with promise.
