Athena is Doing Great

Athena is Doing Great

Story by Angela Sanders

“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Proverbs 15:1

A wise little girl who gets right to the point, thirteen-year-old Athena is glad to be living at OBHC and thankful that she doesn’t have to leave any time soon.

“I love it here,” she says, her expression serious. “I love everything about it, the trips, the donors, the mission trips, and my houseparents, all of it. It’s good for me!”
