The eighteenth year is when the children of Grace Village are readied for life in the community. Wisely, as many have siblings who remain behind, Healing Haiti is preparing for this with jobs, education, and housing for the family unit. Your support keeps these brothers and sisters together – as God intended us to be. As always, I appreciate your taking the time to read about this week’s child and giving thought to financially supporting them. The response has been wonderful, and I love you all for taking care of these children.
This week’s child is: Laika.
Laika is an amazing young woman. One of the attributes that makes Laika so special is the joy she gets from working with the handicapped. Laika also enjoys cleaning and washing clothes, she provides a lot of help to the staff and younger children with her desire and willingness to serve. When Laika is not serving others she can be found playing cards, singing or studying French. It’s no surprise that Laika wants to be a doctor when she finishes school. Laika’s prayer request is to be able to help other people in the world.
Birthdate: October 10, 1997
Place of Birth: Port au Prince, Haiti
It is my hope that one of you will find your heart touched by this child and take up a bit of Christ’s work by sponsoring them for an extended period. My wife and I are sponsoring a pair of sisters and we took on the commitment based on having to only gave up a fast-food dinner each day to change the life of a child. God came through with a very lucrative bit of voice over work for me that covered the bill that same day, but it really is as easy as skipping a value meal. Healing Haiti will do the right things for these children and I have full confidence in their work. I am not affiliated with them, they don’t endorse this blog, nothing like that at all. I just love kids (can’t be Santa and not love children) and know that Grace Village is the difference between life and death for many of these children. Please open your heart and prayerfully reflect on the opportunity God’s giving us to sponsor these children. Some of them have come out of slavery and have some of the toughest lives you could imagine prior to Grace Village.
Just click the link and it will take you directly to the page where you can sponsor this week’s child. And if God is particularly good and that child is sponsored when you get there, please grab another smiling face and change their life instead. My goal is to put Sponsorship Sunday out of business as quickly as possible and take that day off each week. Thank you. God bless you for your generosity.
