BATON ROUGE – Jennifer was only eight years old when she came to live at the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home. She was a broken little girl. She was hurting and she was afraid. The adversity she had already faced in her young life was indescribable.
That was 1998. Today, Jennifer is a lovely young woman of 19. Not only has Jennifer grown physically during the 11 years she has called LBCH home, she has grown emotionally and spiritually as well. Being able to grow up in a stable Christian home with the love and support of Christian Cottage parents changed Jennifer’s life.
On May 14, Jennifer crossed the stage at the Neville High School football stadium to receive her high school diploma. She did it! And her LBCH family was there to cheer her on.
Jennifer’s successes in life haven’t come easy, but they have come. They have come because of God’s undying love shared with her through the ministries of the LBCH.
Every boy and girl in need of the services of LBCH has his or her own story. They each have had their own struggles to overcome.
Jennifer and countless others like her who have come through the doors of LBCH are living proof that with the hope found in Jesus Christ, every individual can persevere and succeed.
LBCH is entering its 110th year of ministry and the adversity children are facing is more difficult than ever. On June 14, the Children’s Home Annual Offering will be received in churches across Louisiana. Your gift during this special time will help children like Jennifer and Jessie and Michael discover hope and success.
Jeremiah 29:11 proclaims, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
