Ekklesso is one of our students here that is always smiling. His name means, “No one is greater than God.” He comes from a very poor family. His father is also handicapped and Ekklesso frequently must beg for food in his village. Here at school he is grateful for everything and works very hard in his classes and around the center.
Ekklesso received Jesus with a former chaplain, Mr. Woaku in 2009. Before he came to know and love Christ he would bully other kids. Now he has learned to love others as Christ has loved him. His favorite verse is Hebrews 13:5-6 “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?’”
