Introducing Alex Ochola

Alex_r

Alex was born on May 11th, 1989. He grew into a stubborn young man, joining with bad friends who influenced his character for the worse. Alex became a known by his community as a stubborn young man who fought and vandalized people’s belongings for sport with the help of his ‘clique.’ He quickly became the most hated young man within the community.

In 2004, Alex encountered the love of Christ through Favor of God Ministries and during high school started began to serve the ministry as a volunteer. Today, he attends Church of the Living Savior where he is being groomed for leadership.

Since joining Favor of God, Alex’s’ life has dramatically changed. He is now a humble young man, having given up his stubborn ways, and he has experienced tremendous spiritual growth and maturity through his relationship with Favor and through his involvement at his local church. Alex’s life has also improved materially, as he is now able to care for his basic needs as an employee of Favor.

This young man with such a troubled past, has been transformed by the power of the Gospel of Christ! He has obtained his diploma for social work and social administration, and currently heads our House of Hope department. Now he works every day with our children, sharing the love and grace that he himself has learned as he raises up still more leaders for the next generation!
