The Amazing Leslie Woo

One of the joys of this summer was meeting Leslie Woo in Brooklyn, NY. He is a little boy around 10 years old who latched on to me while we taught VBS. He is definitely a trouble maker, and has virtually no social skills. His mother died when he was a baby and his father basically abandoned him, leaving his grandmother to raise him in her busy boarding house. For the first 8 years of his life virtually all human contact came in the form of television. The wonderful staff of the 2nd Evangelical Free Church of Brooklyn has taken on the challenge of loving and training Leslie. I was privileged to be a part of his life for a week and hope to continue having an input in his life over the years.

Here is a small taste of my man Leslie. I love how he say's "Mr. Big John"!
