“The tumor in my head represented a Goliath that I needed to defeat. The more the doctors said that I had few chances to survive, the more I held on to God’s promises,” said 12-year-old Axel. “In the project, my tutor taught me that David defeated a giant called Goliath with the power of the living God. While I was in the hospital bed, I believed those words.” ⠀

Even though Axel has had numerous surgeries, treatment and has spent a lot of time in the hospital in the past two years; he has kept up with junior-high classes and is currently in 7th grade. Although he has lost mobility in his right hand, he has managed to become left-handed to complete his homework. We are so inspired by you Axel and we are praising God for all He has done in your life so far!
