God says

"I will be
a Father to the Fatherless"

A  Father dies

Parents seperate and mum gets custody of the kids.

A father is unable to provide

or fails to protect.

in any of these situations a boy has suffered a great loss
he needs to be able to grieve his loss

he is or is in effect fatherless

He needs a comforter.

He needs understanding relatives and friends.

He needs a supportive Pastor, Elder, Teacher, neighbor

who will be his mentor.

sadly many boys are neglected

some never know a father's love.

some never know a male mentor.
