Meet Aaliyah, A Lincoln Academy Student

“A Day in the Life of Aaliyah” lets you see how she feels about being a student at Lincoln Academy and the effort it takes to make that a priority in her life.

Just a few miles from the most expensive houses in the inner city of Huntsville AL were men, women, and children surviving without the basic necessities. No running water or electricity. Plumbing didn’t work and floors were rotted from leaking pipes. Children had broken toys and went to bed hungry. A man with a heart for this inner city neighborhood stepped into the home of a little girl and her mother. That visit opened the man’s eyes and eventually a community’s eyes to the great need in their midst: the  need for Christ.

Lincoln Village Ministries is the product of one man’s call to action. The call has spread all over the city of Huntsville to pour out the hope and love of Jesus Christ into the Lincoln community.
