How was your weekend? Isanon and I enjoyed a very relaxing weekend. Isa had the weekend off, so we enjoyed some much needed rest and quality time together. We had planned to go to the beach on Saturday, but we woke up to a very gloomy and sun-less day, so we opted to stay in. He also seems to be coming down with a little bit of a cold, so hot tea and rest is what the doctor (me) ordered. We have a little on-going list of movies we want to watch, so we got a couple of those scratched off this weekend!
As promised, today you get to meet one of our crazy boys. Say hello to Djon (pronounced Jon).
Djon is 16 years old, and has been back with us at Hope Mountain since August of 2013. He had been with us for quite some time before, but due to him getting in lots of trouble and running away various times - he was transferred to another home in early 2013. When he returned to us in August, he was on a 'last chance' basis, and has been doing quite well since.
Djon recently began going to a private school (read about that here!) and has been doing really well! It is challenging, but it is so awesome to see him come home from work, and go straight to studying. Speaking of work, he also just recently began working as a receptionist at a Hospital nearby. It is an amazing opportunity for Djon, and he not only seems to be doing really well, he seems to be truly enjoying it. The change in his attitude has been enormous! We love seeing this (happy) side of Djon.
Please be praying with us for Djon this week. We are praying that he would continue to enjoy life. That he would continue to see that he can do whatever he puts his heart to do. Please pray that he would stay encouraged, and continue to choose the right path. We are extremely proud of the change we have seen in Djon, and are praying that more and more he would seek the Lord.
