Favorite Bible Verse: "The Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance against me to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.
" - Psalm 27:1-2


jared's STORY:

Jared's mother and father divorced when he was just a young boy. His father later died and his mother was left living HIV positive. Jared soon turned to the streets to find food for himself and his mother. Street life was very difficult for Jared as he was beaten by other street boys and was immensely malnourished. His mother is still alive and is very thankful that Saving Grace has been able to provide a new life for her son. Jared has lived with Saving Grace since he was seven years old.

Jared is a humble young man who loves helping others in any way he can. He can often be found helping the younger children at the village complete chores. Jared is extremely respectful and works very hard to help with anything and everything needed at the village. He has a beautiful singing voice and leads the other children in worship often. He also enjoys playing soccer and one day he hopes to become a doctor.
