Right from the start, we knew that his story was made up. Our team tried everything to gain his trust and learn the truth about him. we got through to him with the different lessons at the Emmanuel House & Ahmed finally came to us with the truth. Ahmed’s real name is Sherif. He gave us his family’s phone number and shared with us, their exact whereabouts. We then took Ahmed to his hometown where we reunified him with his uncle. Because there was unrest in the area, we couldn’t take him to his parents in the countryside. His uncle confirmed that Ahmed had runaway from home a bunch of times before and had lived on the streets of Desse. Ahmed changed his mind because of the things he learned & the prayer at the Emmanuel House. We hope these same lessons & prayers have changed him enough to stick around home.
