Three-year old Lifa has become a cherished and celebrated part of the Ten Thousand Homes family. Abandoned by his mother at 7-months old, Lifa was left under the care of a family from Mbonisweni by his biological father. Staff member, Kacy Chaffin began building a relationship with Lifa in March 2010 when she stayed with this family for a community home stay as a DTS participant. Through consistent love, we have seen Lifa transformed from a silent, withdrawn child to a little boy overflowing with life.
Today, Lifa’s biological father, who was orphaned at a very young age, has come back into his life. Pastor Sthembiso and TTH staff are building a relationship with him that communicates his worth and the power of loving as a family. We are watching a story of God’s full-circle redemption in His orphaned and vulnerable children and are honored to be a part of it.
