Maybe your home is a ranch-style, brick house, with a big backyard and swing set.
Maybe you live in a tiny apartment with your friends—a few of whom forget to wash their dishes.
Our boys live in a modest but comfortable house in the Dominican Republic—with a classroom, counseling office, and plenty of bunk beds and laughter and love. Our second Blackbox home is underway, too—already more than halfway funded by our 50/50 campaign.
But another home—one even more important than any of these—was written about 2,000 years ago. We celebrate it this week:
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
The God of the universe took on flesh. He became human, and lived where we live.
He made His home with us, because He wanted to be with His children.
He still does!
And so, we raise money for Blackbox houses. We train counselors and teachers. God considered His children worth leaving heaven for, and so we pray every day for boys who have no home to find their place with us.
We pray that one day, because of a temporary Blackbox house, they will find their everlasting home in heaven.
Because God made His dwelling among us.
