Hey everybody. Chrispys Carvings and I are starting this group to help raise money to get a ticket for our friend Sam to get a flight back to the States with us. Sam is an American, born in the US but forced to leave when his mother died and he was sent by his father at ten years old to live in Tonga with his family he had never met. His whole life he was treated as the slave of the family and severely beaten. His family only fed him on occasion so they wouldn't look bad at church. He's 32 now and is a teacher at a school here. He makes about $70 US every 2 weeks and teaches English and Biology. He doesn't have a degree in teaching and could possibly soon loose his job. He has a great heart and is very humble and always learning (he's learning several languages right now) God has been doing great things in his life as he is learning to forgive his relatives and Dad. We love spending time with him because he is such an encouragement and watching him grow in his faith in awesome. We were shocked when he said would go if he could. He has been waiting and waiting years for his Dad to come to Tonga but he has decided to stop putting his life on pause and take the leap! Going to the US would be a great opportunity for him! He wants to go and prayerfully consider what he should pursue...possibly a teaching degree, counseling, or working to be able to buy his own land in Tonga. He is highly motivated. This would be a second chance that no one his whole has given him and could literally change his life forever. he would need $ 1,000.
