My Prayer Child

Many of us child sponsors are at our limit of sponsor children financially, but when a child grabs our hearts, the thing we can do is pray.

This is Keyling, and she has been on my heart for weeks.  She is having her 8th birthday in exactly one week.  What a fantastic birthday present - receiving a sponsor!

She lives near Leon, Nicaragua where the average monthly income is only $19.  Normal houses have dirt floors, wood walls and cardboard roofs.  What good is cardboard and dirt when the 6 month rainy season arrives?

Her community is in desperate need of proper sanitation, employment and vocational training.

Yet, despite the poverty that Keyling is living in, she is still like any girl and loves playing with dolls and jumping rope.  Her above average performance at school proves that the poverty around her does not ruin her spirit and the joy of being a child.

Sponsorship costs $44 a month, love, prayers and writing at least 3 letters per year.

Keyling is listed on the Compassion USA website, but can be transferred to any of Compassion's Country Offices around the world.  If you are unsure of this, just ask me and I will try and assist you.
