bupe's funeral

As many of you know we have been dealing with the death of one of the street kids that we work with in Streetwise. 

It took three weeks but finally!  We were able to find his family and and give him a proper burial.  I would like to thank all of you for praying for this difficult and LONG process.  Our hearts in the entire situation was that these kids would begin to realize that through the way we treated Bupes death with love and respect that it would speak to them of how important and valuable their lives are.  

I really don’t have words to describe it so I am going to let the pictures below tell the story.  

Luis and Joe picked up the kids from a local center that helps streetkids.  Fountain of Hope
