We were matched with Noah almost 2 years ago (April 2012) through Amachi! "Amachi" is a Nigerian word meaning
"Who knows but what God has brought us through this child?"
Amachi is a mentoring program for children and youth who have a parent in state or federal prison. Our hearts were tugged to pursue this after watching the movie "Courageous." Children with parents in prison have a 70% chance of ending up in prison as adults.
With your help, Amachi can break the cycle of incarceration and continue to create opportunities for children in our city, ages 4 to 17, to connect with individuals who can encourage and care for them.
Jeremy will be competing in a duathlon on Saturday April 12 (exactly 2 years to the day that we first met Noah :) in honor of Noah's life, potential, and dreams. We pray that the cycle of incarceration will stop with him and he will grow up to be a strong Warrior for the Lord. We have so much hope for Noah and his mom. We have loved living life with them and watching him grow up. He is 2 months younger than Mabel and is excelling in Kindergarten this year.
THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN...
Jeremy has a fundraising goal of a minimum of $100. Please consider making a donation to Jeremy and Noah's team this year! Are you called to invest in the lives of vulnerable children in Knoxville?

Who knows what God has in store for this boy's
(and so many other babes) LIFE!?!
A look back at our past two years together... woo wee he has grown SO much!
