The gist of James' story is that he was moving to Denver from his home in Wisconsin and his car caught on fire in the process with everything inside. James doesn't have many personal belongings after this fire and being so impacted by him in my life, I want to help him.
The full story:
This summer, I had the honor of meeting James Boyce. James decided to spend his summer serving the Lord at Malibu Club Younglife Camp as a Bike Wrangler.
One thing while serving at this Summer Camp is that the staff shares their testimonies to become closer to one another. James shared about his life and enlightened us on some hardships he's facing, such as his mother is dealing with some health issues putting a strain on his family's finances.
James decided to move full-time to Denver, where he attends the University of Denver. While he was moving from Wisconsin to Colorado, transporting all of his belongings James' car caught on fire.
Luckily, he wasn't hurt in the fire, but James lost everything, his belongings and vehicle.
After hearing his testimony, the Lord put it on my heart to start this campaign for our dear friend. James represents Jesus in everything he does and after our month long session was up, it was time to return home; James asked to stay! He asked to stay so he could serve the Lord and high school kids for another month.
Many people wouldn't do this because of the cost factor of not working for another month during the summer, and the pressure of his circumstances, but James is showing incredable faith by serving the Lord and knowing he'll be taken care of.
One thing that stood out as a huge leap of faith, is that as of now he is unsure of his living situation upon returning to life in the United States.
So, I ask you for your support. Any monitory donation is greatly appreciated by myself and the rest of the work staff who worked alongside James. He is a man of character and Christ, we know he will rise above these setbacks and we want to help.
If you are able to give, please do. Either way, please pray for James, that he has a great rest of the summer and a great upcoming semester, as well as continued prayer for his parents. Thank you, friends!
