Robert's Story

Meet Robert!

Robert is a 2nd-grade student at TA Brown Elementary and has been participating in Side by Side Kids since kindergarten! Robert has two older siblings that have also been part of SBSK for years (you may remember his brother Jimmy from previous videos). It's really special the way their family has grown in their faith and character together.

What Robert says he enjoys more than anything is running and playing soccer with all of his friends. When Robert is not playing outside, he can be found in the classroom encouraging everyone with his silliness and words of truth. Robert always yells, "‘God loves us!’ every time I ask him, ‘Who does God love?’,” says Sri, his 2015-16 Crew Leader.

This past summer our volunteers asked Robert, "'Who is Jesus?' and he responded, 'Jesus is my superhero!'" That's what it's all about, isn't it? We love hearing that Jesus is both a personal friend and mighty God to our students!

Will you pray that Robert and the 150+ students we serve to continue to grow in their faith this year? To get to know our program better, please click here and serve with us!
