welcome to my humble home

Our Compassion sponsored child, Mayra, lives with her Grandmother and Grandfather in this tin/wooden 2 room shanty with 4 more of her cousins, her Great Grandmother and mentally handicapped son. When we arrived she welcomed us 'to her humble home.' She is a spiritual giant whom God's Spirit rests. When asked if she had prayer requests she only would tell us what she was praying for us. I was about to lead in prayer and she then began a prayer that knocked us to our knees. A true prayer warrior.

    David, Thanks for your work with the kids in Compassion. Our prayers are with you, the children and parents who are trying to better their lives physically and more importantly spiritually to spread the message of the gospel, compassion for others and the love of Christ. To the Glory of God!
