She has run away before, but we pray that sponsorship would provide a way for her to not become a street kid. She is bright and hardworking, but her family situation is difficult. Pray for Ida, that as she grows to be a young woman she would find and deeply know the love of her heavenly Father.
Cynthia seems an exceptional girl. I think God has big things for her. She is now trying to go to school, but has no funds, so they chase her away time after time, but she keeps persisting. She is determined to be a nurse. She heard we were trying to find sponsors and came and looked me up. She wants to be a nurse. It's normal for girls her age to go through a ceremony to prepare for marriage - she will not do that. She wants to get to 12th grade and beyond!
