The Barbers hope to influence the boys by modeling a good Christian family, as well as to encourage parental involvement in the school as much as possible. Foremost, the Barbers want students to experience hope, to feel loved and to recognize the possibilities their futures hold. Establishing a worship group and, in time, a church is also among their goals.
The Barber family recognizes their need for support, both financial and through prayer. In their words, “It is through God’s grace that we can do the work we are called to do. Your participation is needed and we pray that you will be faithful to the nudge of the Spirit that asks you to give.”
