His name is Oak, like the tree.
He’s six years old and lives in a slum in Thailand.
Both his parents are alive, as far as we know,
But they live in prison, so he never sees them.
Practically, Oak is an orphan.
Daily Prayer Guide
“When going through trials, such as undergoing three knee surgeries in six months like I did this last year, it’s easy to flirt with depression. Days can seem dark and dreary, especially when you are dependent on others to help you do even menial tasks. But if there’s one thing I learned through this year of crutches, physical therapy, and pain, it’s that God is faithful to me no matter what emotions I am feeling at the time. When I remember that he is faithful, and I must remain faithful to him, there is hope, hope that he will never leave me nor forsake me, hope that there is a light at the end of this tunnel, hope that I will one day run and leap again!”
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. Psalm 28:7
