Ronnie is my new project. He is an 11 year old fifth grader who saw his brother get shot and killed.
Over the years he’s been one of the hardest kids to work with. He cusses a lot, gets in fights and is ready to drop out of school.
I’ve been praying for him a lot lately and I can really see the difference.
Today he asked politely to use my phone and we worked on his homework together.
Ronnie likes to rap so I decided to reward him for his good behavior by helping him record his songs. Some of them are really sad. He talks about being born a mistake and being raised by gangsters.
I’m hoping this exercise will help him and I get along better and have him take a look at his life so we can decide what next move will be.
Please be praying for Ronnie.
