Dave and the boys
Dave began mentoring a few boys almost 3 years ago. A few boys have moved away, but Shannon has stayed a part of the group, and Khaliq has joined this year. Both are 5th graders at the local grade school. Along with some hoops and plenty of food, they talk about character and faith. Last year, Shannon was accepted into an excellent charter school, but because he spent the summer out of town with his father, he missed the cut off date for the school. This year, he is signed up again, and along with his mother we are praying that he gets in! If he does, Dave’s encouragement, tutoring and accountability will be even more important.
