2. They cooked over a campfire.
If there was any food, Jacob and Jonah cooked over the campfire just a few feet away from their tent. Most of the time, they depended on lunch meals when they were able to catch the bus on time. The boys hid extra rolls and crackers from the cafeteria in their pockets.
6. The boys learned about Jesus.
As the boys began to trust that their needs were always going to be met, that opened the door for the cottage parents to share the Gospel. The brothers received their own bibles. The cottage parents took them to church and led devotions with all the children in the cottage.
7. It was their first "Merry" Christmas.
Unlike past seasons, Christmas was filled with joy. It was a time of family for them and the other children. And they heard the Christmas story and learned what the true many of the season was all about. At BCH, the boys could enjoy a childhood free of heartache and worry.
The story of Jacob and Jonah shows how your church's offering is North Carolina rescuing children from unimaginable neglect and abuse. You make it possible for them to have a safe, compassionate home at Baptist Children's Homes where they are safe, loved and can hear the Gospel, often for the very first time.
Watch their story below and share.
Note: The boys' names and photos have been changed for their privacy and safety.
