Ten year old Emmanuel might be considered the class clown, less for mischief and more for his bubbly personality. Even though he likes to play, he is very smart and does very well in his classes. His favorite subjects are science and geography. He loves school because of the opportunities it gives him for the future.
Emmanuel is an only child. In his village people insult him and even beat him because he is blind. He is praying for these people that they would come to know Jesus and have a change of heart.
When he arrived at the school, Emmanuel had never heard of the person of Jesus Christ. His teachers and dorm parents explained to him that Jesus gives eternal life and He is the only Savior. When Emmanuel heard this, he wanted to know Jesus personally so he gave his life to Him. He says that ever since, his life has completely changed.
